Solomon, who has been called the wisest man who ever lived, distilled his wisdom in the book of Proverbs. Words to Live By takes a careful look at some of Solomon’s wise proverbs to see how godly wisdom and common sense can come together in a practical plan for daily living:

    • Living within your means.
    • What pride is—and what it is not.
    • What you sow is what you reap.
    • The difference between wisdom and knowledge and why it matters.
    • Mercy, justice, and honesty.
    • And more.

A proverb is a short way to express a universal truth. But when we try to actually apply them to the way we live, we realize these “universal truths” aren’t always what they seem. Life is more nuanced than we often anticipate.

Words to Live By will make you think—and give you guidance in your relationships with yourself, with others, and with God.
