When it comes to the Bible, few books are more practical, more directly useful to kids living today, than the Book of Proverbs.
This “book of wisdom” is filled with “life lessons” that will help any child better negotiate life here on planet Earth.
Most Children Can’t Sit Still Long
Enough for a Lengthy Dissertation
on Why They Should or Shouldn’t Act
a Certain Way ...
But the beauty of Proverbs is that they don’t have to, the verses in this book get right to the heart of the issue, teaching an important lesson or delivering advice in a moment’s notice.
Kids instantly learn a Godly way to act or think or live their life.
Unfortunately, when it comes to children some verses in Proverbs are more easily understood than others and while there are a total of 915 verses found in the Book of Proverbs not all are directed to children, many are better suited for adults.
So here’s what we’ve done, we’ve gone through the entire book and selected what I believe are 12 Proverbs that apply directly to children.
Now instead of overloading children with many powerful verses, some of which they might not understand or fully comprehend, you can be sure that you are teaching them the ones they will most identify with … will most need to know as they grow up.
It’s the Quality
Over Quantity Approach …
The 12 Proverbs that we have chosen are also the most popular with youth ministries, Sunday School classrooms and parents.
Learning these 12 Proverbs will enable children to not only memorize, visualize and actualize essential Proverbs but cherish them for life!
But Why Are the Proverbs
STILL So Important Today?
Now more than ever we live in a world where it can be difficult to tell right from wrong.
Globalization has caused most of the world’s cultures to collide into each other, and in America, this means our children are exposed to all kinds of “wisdom” from a lot of different faiths.
To counter constant debate about right and wrong in America, many have resorted to a type of “relativism,” where we basically say “what’s true for you may not be true for me” and various versions of “nobody can know what’s ultimately true, so let’s not argue about it.”
But the fact remains that something is ultimately true; we should not go around picking our truths like we pick melons at the grocery store … in other words we shouldn’t pick a truth just because it is convenient or because nobody who is loud or bullying objects to them.
This is Where the
Book of Proverbs Comes In
God has seen the denial of Ultimate Truth (which in essence is a denial of Him), and He has not left us without a compass.
He has given us thousands of Bible passages to determine truth and fallacy, right and wrong, and the Proverbs are a most straightforward example.
We can read stories about Daniel being thrown by a bullying bureaucracy into the lion’s den, and we can wrap a lesson around it of some clever devising. Or we can hear Truth put very straightforwardly in The Proverbs: “Fear of men will prove to be a snare, but those who trust in the Lord will be kept safe.”
Proverbs are short and sweet. Unlike many other Bible passages they are written in a straightforward way, without much use of metaphors and similes, which can tend to confuse children.
That’s why the Proverbs are one of the greatest tools for knowing right from wrong when it comes to the most important matters in life.
- When parents seem distant and perhaps untrustworthy to growing children, the Proverbs teach about listening to them ...
- When friends apply peer pressure, the Proverbs tell kids how to stay out of trouble ...
- When the Lord seems far off, the Proverbs tell what he is really like ...
That’s why it is important that you teach your students Proverbs, and not just any Proverbs, but the 12 we have identified and emphasized in this new lesson pack.

We Spend a Lot of Time Today
Taking Care of Our
“Outsides” When We Should be
Taking Care of Our “Insides”!
How we dress … how we style our hair … what kind of shoes we wear … you would think these are the most important decisions we face in life sometimes, wouldn’t you?
The truth is dressing up our insides is much more important than dressing up our outsides.
We don’t want to look like slobs, and we want to be clean. Some people really do enjoy dressing up and that’s fine. But we can’t let our insides become less important than our outsides.
We want to be the best people we can be so that Jesus will be happy about us.
And the best way to “dress up our insides” is to learn Proverbs.
Proverbs is one of the best books for getting wisdom quickly and plainly.
As your students learn the 12 Proverbs in this lesson pack, the wiser they will become and the more ready they will become to face life’s tough problems when they come their way.
