Abstract
Through the art of storytelling, twelve instructional lessons of Wisdom lay the foundation for the development of discernment in relation to Wisdom and Folly. The categorically prescriptive truths of Proverbs 1:1-10:1, Ecclesiastes 12:9-14, 2 Peter 1:3-10, and Hebrews 5:8-14 will serve as the building blocks for the development of Christ-like character. Four goals of this research are: (1) an understanding of the fear of the Lord; (2) an increase in discernment when faced with Folly's promises of prosperity, prestige, protection, and pleasure; (3) an increased motivation to yield to correction; and (4) a yearning to seek Wisdom as hidden treasure.
