Page is Sponsored by." , , ,, ,, ,, , Wisdom and Instruction for Life There is no better source of practical wisdom and instruction for how to live an upright and righteous life than the book of Proverbs. Its counsel, however, is not just relevant to individuals, but to nations as well. Proverbs 14:34, for instance, is a truth that godly leaders have cited for generations: "Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people." Patrick Henry, one of early America's most outspoken Revolutionary leaders, predicted that whether or not the newly formed United States would prove "a blessing or a curse will depend upon the use our people make of the blessings which a gracious God hath bestowed on us. If they are wise, they will be great and happy. If they are of a contrary character, they will be miserable. Righteousness alone can exalt them as a nation." The state of our nation today suggests we have strayed from God's wisdom. We - as individuals and corporately as a nation - must seek God and His righteousness if we are to continue in His grace.
