Words of Truth - Lesson 9, Quarter 1, 2015
How does Solomon ask for his 30 sayings to be used?
How might this strategy of Solomon, who received ambassadors from across the known world, have served to increase his reputation while also spreading the Wisdom of God?
“Faith in God and in His promises of judgment help give us some peace of mind regarding all the injustice we see in the world now.“
Is this really the hope we should have for those who do not know Jesus?

How does our own experience of repentance and forgiveness make a difference in our desired outcome for the lost?
How are they related?
How is the hospitality of the proverb’s ruler or stingy man likely to lead to the evils listed in Mark 7:21-23?

Consider Ezekiel 33:8 and Proverbs 24:11-12 before answering.
