There are six things that the LORD hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers. - Proverbs 6:16–19 (ESV) When we talk about theology and use big churchy sounding words, it can easily feel like Christianity and life are two separate spheres of existence. God is interested in the spiritual, but the practical real-life stuff is another matter. The text of Proverbs won't let us make these distinctions. Our 'spiritual life' is also our business life. It's also our personal life. It's also our recreational life. We might just say 'it's life'! This week we continue in our journey in Proverbs as we head into the first section of Proverbs 6. Matt Parrow will be opening this section to us. It deals with how we deal with our money, how we work, and how we relate to others. I encourage you take some time to slowly read through this section before Sunday. How have these areas been impacted by the Fear of the Lord in your life? Why not invite someone to join you on Sunday at 10:30AM? Programming Note: Next week (7/28) we will be looking at the rest of Proverbs 6-7. This section deals with our sexuality. I will be teaching through the section. I will be sensitive, but will be speaking candidly (but not crudely) as the text does, about both the joys and dangers of this part of life. I want parents to be aware as we approach this section. Let me know if you have questions.
