Approach: Reading Proverbs 3:1-6 with an eye towards understanding "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding."

Hermeneutic objective: Using a chart to aid in the skill of observation.

Theological objective: The author of Proverbs is emphasizing the importance of knowing God's word:

1) Trusting God's word is better than not in living life.

2) Rather than trusing an interpreter to explain challenging passages of the Bible, learn how to use God's word itself to interpret difficult passages of the Bible.
