STEYN, L.. Living wisely in a modern world. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2010, vol.44, n.3-4, pp. 743-758. ISSN 1018-6441.

People all over the world today have to compete for their daily bread and struggle to make ends meet. This represents the arena where humans battle to cope with the complexities of daily life. At the same time they try to find meaning in life and guidelines to live life well. It is here, in ordinary real life, where wisdom and folly compete for human loyalties and where the divine and the human meet (O'Connor, 1993:14). It is here where Proverbs 3 gives us diverse guidelines on how to live wisely in a modern world.

Palavras-chave : father and son; folly; Ma'at; new covenant; sages; wisdom; wise living.
