Proverbs Study no.2 - Being a woman of Character

This week's study has been awesome!  I'm filled with joy knowing that I'm striving each day to start my day out in the word of God.  How has your study been thus far?  Has being in the word helped you with clarity?  I loved how this week's theme of wisdom was depicted between the comparison of a woman of character versus an immoral woman.  God is amazing how he uses this symbolism to help us understand his word.  Basically, we can either live right or godly or of this world?  Which will you choose?

  • What choices can you make today to live more godly?
  • How can you obtain wisdom? (Read James 1:5)
  • What "worldly temptations" do you need to stay away from?
  • Is there a sin that you need to make a clean break from?  (Spend some time in prayer about this sin)
  • How would you define "godly"?  Is it living a perfect life or a life striving to know and obey God?
