A good question for us to make is, "What is the point of it?" as we read the book of Proverbs to find wisdom from God for us. Why did God choose to preserve these proverbs throughout time? Thus, the following are five explanations as to why God provided us with this book, such as:
To stir up in the reader a spirit of reverence and submission. The book's goal is stated in the first sentence of the first section. The definition of stupidity is when we fail to act as we should. Thus, the main goal of the book of Proverbs is to put the truth of God into its right place so that we can see life from God's perspective—from His eternal, infinitely knowledgeable point of view—and then behave appropriately. The book of Proverbs explains how to obtain understanding from God's corrections so that people will follow in the empowering presence of the Spirit.
To impart discernment. It's important to discern. The Hebrew word literally translates as "to divide; to make different." Having discernment means being able to clearly recognize all the moving pieces in a scenario. A discerning mind possesses the capacity for critical thought, the ability to tell fact from error, including the ability to foresee the possible results of any particular decision.
To improve your walking alertness. Receive, as it was originally interpreted, connotes movement, carrying something with you, or lugging something. In this instance, the learner of God's words receives "instruction in wise behavior." Our awareness of life's path is increased by the proverbs. These proverbs from the Old Testament encourage us to stay alert to hazards around us.
To develop judgment and a sense of purpose. The Hebrew definition of wisdom does not include being ignorant or being silly. Roughly translated, the word "naive" means "simple." Each person still has a certain amount of youth and innocence, despite their age or experience. God's wisdom brings hope to everyone who wanders idly, lacks a purpose, and just accepts a human perspective on life.
To develop mental sharpness. Our wits will become razor-sharp through heavenly insight. The proverbs train our thoughts to sever layers of lies and reach the essence of truth in each situation. We can decipher more of life's mysteries when we possess divine understanding. Soon enough, the wisdom of God's viewpoint will gradually take over the place of the grind of a purely human worldview.
The knowledge contained in the Proverbs teaches us how to seek and acquire wisdom. The awareness that God has crafted moral and practical laws that rule his creation, as stated in the book of Proverbs, is the secret to living a smart and skilled life. This refers to "the physics" of God's creation. It forms part of reality's structure.
Wisdom has three dimensions, just as the three dimensions of the divine image in humans do:
1. Wisdom in morals. teaching on how to live according to God's moral principles. How to practice morality and ethics with wisdom and competence. This emphasizes personality.
2. Functional wisdom. Ideas for doing your job on a daily basis that are practical. How to be proficient in the technical aspects of your career. Competence is the key emphasis here.
3. Relational wisdom. This is about the direction of how to deal with others. What it takes to interact with others wisely and skillfully. This emphasizes interpersonal interaction.

Several passages in the book of Proverbs are believed to belong to "Solomon the son of David, the king of Israel" (Proverbs 1:1, 10:1, 25:1, as well as 1 Kings 4:32; Guide to the Scriptures, "Proverb—the book of Proverbs"; scriptures.lds.org). It is better to conceive of the book of Proverbs as a repository for Israelite knowledge, even though Solomon is credited with authoring a number of the Proverbs.
Despite some of its material "does not soar above the surface of worldly wisdom," it is assumed consistently that "the fear of the Lord is the starting point of wisdom" (1:7; 9:10). Even so, another of its content is profoundly spiritual (Bible Dictionary, entry for "Proverbs, book of").
Although the exact dates and locations of the book of Proverbs' composition are unknown, it is generally accepted that the book's original compilation occurred between 1015 and 975 B.C. in Jerusalem, under King Solomon's era. Numerous proverbs probably originated in pre-Solomon oral traditions, which were widely used at the time.
Chapters 25 to 29 of the book of Proverbs were inserted during the reign of King Hezekiah of Judah, according to Proverbs 25:1. Other proverbs were included as well following Solomon's time. However, when the book took on its final form is uncertain.
