Why you should read Proverbs

On the first episode of the Sojo Show, AJ and Jen talk about wisdom, knowledge and the fear of the Lord.

Right out of the gate, Jen and AJ had an interesting discussion about age.

Age- Is it just a number? When you get older does it mean you automatically get wiser? With Jen not willing to share her age (ahem), Jen and AJ introduced their discussion for the following 4 episodes: the book of Proverbs. 

The book of Proverbs is divinely inspired. These proverbs not only give practical advice for the here and now, but for eternity as well, making Proverbs the most practical book in the Bible.  It’s also what makes the difference between a helpful proverb (like ‘a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush’) and the Book of Proverbs.

AJ and Jen also shared how Bible study doesn't have to be complicated! To help guide your study through the book of Proverbs, they provided a bookmark you can stick in your Bible as you read through the Proverbs.

“There’s a lot of different opinions on how we need to live our life, but God’s word gives us the truth.” – AJ


“Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise. Many men know a great deal, and are all the greater fools for it. There is no fool so great a fool as a knowing fool. But to know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom” – Charles Spurgeon
