Street Smarts From Proverbs reveals Solomon’s steps to divine wisdom while providing tools to navigate out of conflict into community.
Mitch Kruse learned the hard way that going to church three times a week while growing up did not answer the question:
Have you ever thought about changing the scorecard of your life from money to wisdom?
His pursuit to find the answer sparked a lifelong journey through the ultimate wisdom book, Proverbs, one that connects God’s heart with street smarts.
Street Smarts From Proverbs introduces Solomon’s twelve words to the wise:
- righteousness, equity, and justice
- wise behavior, understanding, and wise communication
- prudence, discretion, and wise counsel
- discipline, knowledge, and learning
Each is paired with a real-life story of someone who experienced God’s miraculous restoration after humbling their heart to Him. It explains, illustrates, and applies one of the twelve words, providing an easy-to-understand, yet life-transforming step-by-step process to assimilate each respective trait of wisdom.
Street Smarts From Proverbs gives memorable prompts for the reader to recall every point with the purpose of applying it to conflict at work, with family, among friends, and in ministry. It provides tangible tools to be shrewd, yet harmless, in business dealings; to separate wisdom from foolishness through discretion; and to seek wise counsel for life’s decisions.
