Proverbs: Living Like the Wise Man

Read the following verses and write down what the wise person does in each of them:

Proverbs 1:5
Proverbs 10:8
Proverbs 10:14
Proverbs 10:19
Proverbs 13:1
Proverbs 13:20
Proverbs 14:16 (two things)
Proverbs 18:15

What are some things that stand out in these passages? Write some of your thoughts about wisdom.

Look over your list of things that a wise person does. Choose three things from that list that you would like to do better.


Read Proverbs 9:8,9. As a group, re-write these two proverbs in your own words.

What do you think it means to "rebuke" a wise man? What do you think it means to "instruct" a wise man?

Give an example of someone you've known who usually responds wisely to rebuke and instruction.

What role should rebuke and instruction play in this group?
