The Secret of the Seven Pillars - Building Your Life on God's Wisdom from the Book of Proverbs

Front Cover
Xulon Press, 2007 - 248 pages
Proverbs offers incredible promises to those who seek God and live by God's wisdom principles. In 930 B.C., King Solomon defined Godly Wisdom as having seven pillars. Over 1,000 years later, James the Disciple defined what they are: Pillar 1: Peace-loving Pillar 2: Considerate Pillar 3: Submissive Pillar 4: Merciful Pillar 5: Fruitful Pillar 6: Impartial Pillar 7: Sincere By organizing many of the wisdom-rich Proverbs into these seven pillars, this book can be used as a blueprint for building your life after God's wisdom principles-bringing stability and success in all that you do. This book includes five devotions for each of these seven pillars, providing 35 readings designed to help you build your life on wisdom's solid foundation (purity) and the seven pillars of wisdom. Included herein are treasures of silver, gold, and even a few diamonds for readers who take the time to discover how God's wisdom for daily living can change their lives!
