Overview

Proverbs is a book of great advice...and an ominous warning. The advice is to pursue wisdom. The warning is to avoid folly, because foolishness leads to destruction. However, wisdom must be pursued—it takes effort, discipline, a teachable heart, and instruction. This Midweek Bible curriculum uses the book of Proverbs and other Bible passages to contrast the way of the foolish with the way of the wise. Using a large banner illustrating two paths, children learn about the characteristics and destinations of the foolish and the wise, the meaning of the fear of the Lord, the treasure of wisdom, and the only way to enter the way of the wise—through Jesus Christ.

Electronic curriculum is a great option for many teachers. Learn about how to use our electronic resources and our policies regarding electronic licenses.
