Although they were written some 2,500 years ago, the pithy observations from the book of Proverbs about life and money—"In all toil there is profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty"—still ring true today. But these pearls of wisdom are far more than one-dimensional pieces of folksy advice. Taken together, they form a coherent system of language and metaphor that point to a much more profound understanding of the nature of wealth in our lives, and its connection to committing first to a life of wisdom. Join Timothy J. Sandoval as he guides you through key texts from Proverbs, explaining their historical setting, their meaning and the impact their profound teachings can have on our financial lives today as individuals, as communities and as a nation. Topics include: • Finding and following the Way of Wisdom • Understanding the pitfalls of simplistic or moralistic views of wealth and poverty • Understanding the advantages and obligations wealth brings • Fresh perspectives on borrowing and lending • Ethical solutions to pressing economic problems, including social justice and treatment of the poor
