Proverbs 15 Bible Study: What's Wrong With Your Thinking

A Look Inside

You may look at this section of scripture and see individual verses that have no relation to each other. Without deeper reading and study this would probably be the opinion of many others. Like most scripture, these verses have an individual meaning and can stand alone for specific instruction. They can also be grouped together for enforcement of the meaning behind the verses. This week we move farther into the lessons revealed in Proverbs. These verses rely quite heavily on the "compare and contrast" approach.

Break It Down

Man Hath Joy

Proverbs 15:21-23 Folly is joy to him that is destitute of wisdom: but a man of understanding walketh uprightly. Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellors they are established. A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth: and a word spoken in due season, how good is it!

Verses 21 and 22 use contrasting terms such as "folly" and "understanding." Yes, those who are lacking in wisdom and understanding tend to enjoy activities and hobbies that are far from thought-provoking. On the other side of that coin are the intellectual types who attempt to learn something from every event in life. The interests of this type of person will lean toward deep, enriching activities.

The spiritual application of this verse can be seen in the lives of many great church leaders. Let's look at the life of D.L. Moody. He was a common shoe salesman with a fifth grade education.[i] He also took this verse quite seriously as a "man of understanding" who "walketh uprightly." In his lifetime, D.L. Moody brought God's word to major cities in the Midwest and Atlantic coastal United States along with many overseas countries. He started many schools centered around biblical teaching and ministerial training. Mr. Moody was truly a man of scriptural understanding.
