Sermon Notes: Family Wisdom: The Role of Wisdom in the Family
Researchers that study the family express complete astonishment at how rapidly the American family is changing. There is a complexity and churning of relationship definitions on a scale never seen before. The Norman Rockwell picture of family is disappearing. Social scientists tell us the old fashioned family plan of two stably married parents presiding over a household with their own children is increasingly seen as out of reach for all but one class of people—“the educated elite." There is a proven correlation between people who think and the stability, success, and well being of their family. People who dedicate significant portions of their life to learning find themselves in stable families. This is an idea that the Bible and specifically the book of Proverbs has been shouting to the world for thousands of years.
