    The book of Proverbs offers believers practical scriptures.  That can be used for life application.  The book of Proverbs was written by King Solomon and it is a book that contains divine wisdom and insight.  That can be applied to Earthly conditions.  The central message of Proverbs is “The Wisdom of Christ” is in fact the wisdom of God and we can always depend on leaning on the wisdom of God.  After all God truly knows what’s best for his children.  The book of Proverbs is as relevant today.    As when it was written well over 2,000 years ago!  Even more so because of the season that we are currently  in as believers.   The structure of Proverbs is truly fascinating.  I.)  Wisdom and Folly,  II.)  Proverbs of Solomon written and compiled by him,  III.)  Proverbs of Solomon Compiled by the men of Hezekiah,  IV.) The Words of Agur,  V.) The Words of A Mother.  The book of Ecclesiastes is God’s recorded argument about the complexities of life.  Man’s experience in life and also his reflection about life.  Due to being out of fellowship with God!  The book of Ecclesiastes teaches us all.  About the emptiness  that is present in man’s life.  When God’s love and everlasting presence.  Is void from man’s life.  Due largely to his own decisions and choices!  The author of Ecclesiastes was King Solomon.  King Solomon’s words painted a vivid portrait of the emptiness.  That man feels in his life and also in his heart.  When God is not present in his life!  The Song of Solomon is a love poem and it was written by King Solomon!  The central message or theme of the Song of Solomon.  Is the union that exists between Christ and also his redeemed people.  The Song of Solomon shows this union as a marriage and the different stages of love.  That are written in the Song of Solomon shows.   How God intended for real love to be in a marriage.
