Proverbs Essay, Research Paper


The book of Proverbs explains the wisdom of the Lord and the

duties towards God and our parents. We should praise God for his

wisdom because He created us and the world. God tells us that we need

to be prepared when we serve Him because He will judge us when we

die. We need to accept whatever falls upon us and make the best of it

like God would want us to do. The book of Proverbs tells us that we need

to cling on to Him which to me that means we should follow His

teachings and do whatever it takes to be with God so we can share in

God?s life in heaven. When something bad happens to us and we don?t

know how to handle it we can always pray to God for help, instead of

doing what may seem right to us may be wrong to God, that is why we

should pray to Him for help. If we trust in God then he will help us to

make the best of the situation. As long as we believe in God then he will

forgive us. I know that if we confess our sins often so that we don?t forget

some of them later that he will forgive us as long as we are truly sorry for

them, we do our penance and we ask him for forgiveness then he will

forgive us. But if we don?t do those things he will judge us when we die

and we will regret not doing them.

In chapter three it talks about our duties toward our parents. I

agree with what it says because they bring us into the world and raise us.

They also help us when we have problems in life by telling us why we

can?t do something or why something is wrong. They also help us by

encouraging us, like doing good in school, practice hard for a sport, and

helping other people out when they too need help. I feel that if we didn?t

have our parents to raise us and help us out when we need it that we

would stray off of what God tells us to do because they give us the most

support and guidance in our lives. That to me is one of the biggest

commandments that God gave us.

In chapter four it talks about the poor. I think that most of the poor

did not choose the way they live but they do need our help most of all.

We can help the poor by not turning away from them but by helping them

with what they need, like giving them food or water, by giving them

shelter and clothes, and by helping them turn to God for help too because

that way they can try and live the way God wants them to live. There are

also poor people who bring it onto themselves by maybe dropping out of

school, quitting their jobs, running away from their homes, and by taking

big risks. But they too need help and we can help them by doing all that

we can for them. Chapter four also talks about the rewards of wisdom. I

know that if we help people who need help then God will in return will let

us be with him in heaven. But if we don?t then we will eventually regret

the things that we could of done in our lives on earth when we are

judged. We also need to ignore the evils so that we don?t fall into sin.

God tells us not to show favoritism because it is to our own discredit. I

think when we do show favoritism that is when people will use us and

that is when it is to our discredit. He also tells us that we should not

refrain from speaking at the proper time and not hide our wisdom. God

wants us to use our wisdom and our talents that is why he gave them to


In chapter six it talks about true friends. It tells us how we should

test them before we trust them. I think that we should test the people

who we want to be friends with before we trust them because some

people will just take advantage of you and then leave you when there is

nothing else that they want. I feel that there is allot of people out in the

world today that like to take advantage of people whether it is for their

money or something that they have that is why I think that people should

test others before they that they are friends. When we do have that trust

between each other that is when you know you can go to that person for

help and if you are really good friends than they will help you when you

need it without turning their backs on you. In return we should do the

same for our friends when they need help.

God also talks to us about being disciplined and how we will learn

more if we are. I agree with this too because if no one was disciplined

than there would be a greater disaster in our world. I also think that it

helps us make better decisions than what they would be if we were not

disciplined. We also grow up as a stronger person too because we will

be more grown up than what we would be if we were not disciplined.

In chapter seven it talks about conducts in public life and the

duties of family life, religion and charity. Conduct in public life tells us

how we should follow the laws in our country. I think that some laws we

have are wrong though, like abortion. But we should still follow the

moral laws that we have otherwise people would be doing whatever they

wanted to do, like killing people and other seriously wrong doings.

Chapter seven also talks about the duties of family life, religion,

and charity. It tells us not to be a friend for money or to not have a

sensible wife but a gracious because it is more precious or to not

mistreat a servant or laborer because they devote themselves to there

tasks. It also says that we should honor God and to respect the priests

and to help the poor man by being generous in charity also visit the sick

and whatever we do remember our lasts days and we will never sin. I

think that we need to have a good family life which means being there for

our parents, brothers and sisters in time of hard times and not being nice

to our family for the money but to love them because they are our family.

And we need to have respect for priests because they are the ones that

teach us our faith without them there would not be anyone who would

really know the teachings of God. We also need to respect them because

through God they forgive our sins when we go to confession. Priests also

help the poor and the sick which most people do not do. We also need to

do charity because that is what God would want us to do, like helping the

poor and visiting the sick which some people who are sick don?t have

anybody who visits them.

Chapter eight talks about prudence in dealing with other men. I

think what it says about this is true, we are all guilty. We should not

make fun of people who are old or anyone else because we are too going

to grow old in time. It also says we shouldn?t reject the traditions of old

men because we will obtain the knowledge how to answer in time of

need. I think that as long as we watch what we do more closely then we

will prevent from sinning allot but if we don?t then we will lead a life of

sin and ruin our chance to be closer with God in heaven.

Chapter nine gives advice concerning women. It says not to be

jealous of another wife or to give a woman power over you to trample

upon your dignity or to be intimate with a strange woman. And also not

to gaze at another?s wife or lust for it burns like fire. I think that no one

should be jealous of something someone has and you don?t because

everyone is made to be different. I also think that some women get you

to give them power over yourself and then they make you do things that

you normally don?t then it is like being discredited. Also I think that

when people lust that is one of the worst sins because it makes you treat

them with less manners and it is also one of the most deadly sins.

We should choose our friends wisely. Which means we should not

forget an old friend for a new friend because the new friend cannot equal

him. We also should not want to be friends with someone because of

their popularity or money because later on it will catch up with you. I

think that those people who have friends that hurt people or maybe kill

them can?t say that they couldn?t leave them because it tells us that we

should choose our friends wisely which means stay away from those who

can kill but don?t offend them unless they take away your life.

In chapter ten it talks about the sin of pride. I think that every

catholic should have pride in what they believe because we believe in

one God that created us and also his son died for our sins. If that isn?t

enough for those who don?t have pride in God then they I think will have

there own problems to worry about when they die.

In chapter fifthteenth it tells us man?s free will. It says that we do

things on our own because of free will. I think that this chapter is good

and that people should read it. I think that we shouldn?t blame things on

other people or even God because we all have free will which means we

don?t have to do what our friends want us to do or what other people want

us to do. We bring it upon ourselves when we do wrong things and we all

should take the blame for what we do.

Chapter sixteen tells us what God?s punishment of sinners are. I

know that if we disobey God and not lead a life that he wants us to that

we will end up in purgatory or maybe hell. We can be with God if we

confess our sins and try to lead a good life.

In chapter twenty-one it tells us that sin must be avoided.

Everyone sins everyday but to try and avoid it you must not sin allot

otherwise you will get in a bad habit and sin even more. But when we do

sin we need to pray to God so that he can forgive us and to also go to

confession so our soul isn?t crowed with sin and also so that we can

share in God?s life in heaven.

The book of Proverbs tells us allot about how God wants us to act

and what we should believe in so that when we are judged we can be

with God in heaven.
