Bible Point: We become wise by following God’s Word

Key Verse: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” Proverbs 9:10
We learned this week that Solomon’s wisdom was so great that people came from all nations to hear what he had to say. And we learned that Solomon said wisdom means following God’s Word (1 Kings 4:29-34; Proverbs 1:1-7).
Strengthen your family’s faith learning and growth at home with this easy idea.

  1. Tell your children about the wisest person you know. Explain how you’ve seen this person be wise. How have you seen this person follow God’s Word?
  2. Discuss the choices this person made and why those choices showed wisdom. Talk about what you’ve learned from this person.
  3. Ask your children to tell you about the wisest people they know—and why. Encourage your kids to share with you any areas where they need God’s wisdom this week.


God, thank You for the Bible and the wisdom it gives us for our lives. Please help us seek You and Your Word every day so we can live how You want us to. In Jesus’ name, amen.
