The Proverbs are essentially ideas that grow naturally out of the Law of God. Here we are dealing with one of the most misunderstood concepts in the Bible. If you’ll bear with me, I believe I can clear up a major muddle about the Law and the Bible.
There are certain laws that we call the Laws of Nature. We live with them every day. And while we might like to repeal them from time to time, we can’t live without them. They make life possible.
Right along this set of immutable natural laws is another set. When mankind came on the scene, these laws came right along with it—revealing the natures of both God and man. The former set of laws may make life possible, but this set of laws makes life work.
