Proverbs is one of those books that everyone loves to quote. It’s the go-to resource for posting verses on Facebook, pictures on Instagram, or sending to your friend via text because you want to seem super spiritual. So when I heard the church was going through Proverbs in the month of March, I was excited but also thought Oh, so typical. But as I got to Proverbs 25-29, I did a little research and dove a little deeper. This section was written by Solomon, but not collected and arranged until the time of Hezekiah, some 250 years after Solomon’s life. Hezekiah and his men arranged these proverbs into the form we see today which happens to focus on leadership. Today I will focus specifically on Chapters 28 and 29 where they provide guidance to people in places of leadership.
