Instructions in Proverbs

Instructions in Proverbs

In the Book of Proverbs, the word "instruction" is mentioned 25 times.

In Proverbs 1 the Bible teaches us that instruction...

  • brings understanding
  • is to be received
  • proves that you fear God
  • needs to be listened to

...and that's just in chapter 1.

Regarding instruction, the book of Proverbs goes on to say that we should...

  • attend to it
  • allow it to make us wiser
  • take fast hold of it
  • not despise and hate it
  • make it a way of life
  • realize that it's better than silver and gold.
  • not refuse it.
  • apply it to our hearts.
  • hear it
  • give it
  • keep it
  • love it

Finally, without instruction, we'll all go astray.

Proverbs 5:23 He shall die without instruction; and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.
