Proverbs is a fabulous book of practical wisdom. These golden nuggets of truth are as relevant today as when they were written on ancient scrolls, millennia ago.
When preaching, especially when sharing an application with the audience, the use of a proverb can make the application more memorable and “season” a sermon with transcendent truth.
