Men of the Word exists to glorify God by equipping and encouraging men to fulfill their God-ordained roles as leaders in the home, the church, and the world. This is accomplished by providing biblical instruction, personal discipleship, genuine fellowship, and spiritual accountability.
Men of the Word focuses on the application of God’s Word to the issues of life men regularly encounter in their spheres of responsibility. It provides a forum where men of younger faith interact with and receive wisdom from those who are more mature in Christ, and serves to prepare men for more faithful service to the local church and a more effective witness to the world.
Since the purpose of the book of Proverbs is to convey wisdom, it is natural that many of its teachings deal with wisdom’s antithesis—foolishness. Proverbs treats foolishness as mankind’s greatest enemy. It is man’s most lethal disease. He is already infected with it by the time he is born. Wisdom—“the fear of God” (Proverbs 1:7)—is the only antidote.
