How to get wiser

I was chatting with friends last night after Live Life and our discussion turned to Proverbs having spent the evening doing God at Work. My friend has spent two weeks meditating on a couple of verses and he shared them with us:

"It is the glory of God to conceal things, but the glory of kings to search things out" Proverbs 25 v 2

"Do you see a man skillful in his work? He will stand before kings, he will not stand before obscure men" Proverbs 22 v 29

Proverbs is a mini-guide to life. My friend then said an interesting thing, "Since I have been coming back to church I have realised that I have been given a second chance to be the good wise son described in Proverbs...." (The perfect wise son is, of course, Jesus) It is never too late to get wise so here are some starter resources:

1. These talks

2. Or these talks

3. This commentary

4. Or this book for a simple starter

And if you want to start with just one listen then Your plans God's plans is the place then buy the whole series.
