Wisdom is more like a creative process than it is a finished piece of art.
A common misconception about the Proverbs is that it only focuses on personal, moral living. The vision of this text is bigger, and encompasses the whole of creation.
God’s Wisdom is More Than Moral Living
What is Wisdom like in the Book of Proverbs?
Wisdom is given so that we may experience life and life in its fullness. This happens in the context of people. To take the structure of Proverbs seriously is to understand that God’s wisdom is for human flourishing, and that wisdom is best learned and practiced in community.
God’s Wisdom is for Human Flourishing
Proverbs is meant to call into question our current living and show us a way more in tune with the Spirit of God. It is the Word of God breaking through the wisdom of people to call into a more beautiful living.
