Discussion Questions

Discussion starters for your small group, triad, or family worship time.
  • When Solomon asked the Lord for wisdom, what were his reasons for asking?  What does this tell us about the root of wisdom?

  • Why do you think the Bible spends so much time documenting Solomon’s construction of the temple.

  • Even wise Solomon experienced a catastrophic downfall due to poor decision-making.  What led to this, and what can we learn from this?

  • Proverbs 26:4 and 26:5 seem contradictory on the surface level.  How do you think both can be true?  What does this tell you about how to read proverbs properly?

  • Proverbs 22:6 reads like a firm promise, so why is it that sometimes children who are raised properly veer off the right path as adults?  Does this give us a hint of how proverbs can be interpreted (and they cannot be interpreted)?
