The book of Proverbs was written by Solomon. Solomon was the wisest man alive during his time (1 Kings 3:12). When Solomon became king of Israel, God talked to him in a dream. God told Solomon he could have anything he asked for. Solomon didn’t ask for gold or power. He asked for wisdom to lead God’s people. Because of his answer, God gave him wisdom, wealth, and power.

Wisdom is when you know something and you act on that knowledge.View PDF
