Who Do You Trust? The Wisdom on Proverbs

with Ron Deal | April 1, 2020

When bad things happen psychologically we have an immediate need to know what we are dealing with. So we ask lots of "What?" oriented questions. What happened? When? Where? Then we ask "Why?" Why would someone do that? If God is in control, why would this happen? But if we're not careful we stop there. We forget to ask the "Who" question. Who do I trust? Trust in the Lord, advises Proverbs, not your own understanding. The "What?" and the "Why?" never satisfy the soul, but the "Who?" does.
