Walk with the Wise

Walk with the Wise
May 2019 - Jun 2019
This summer we are going to hang out, not with smart people, but with wise people. (There is a difference between intelligence and wisdom.) Scripture tells us that if we listen to the wise voices around us we will grow in our wisdom. This Sunday we start our summer series 'Walk with the Wise' looking at the first nine chapter of Proverbs.

Path to Wisdom
Sun, Jun 02, 2019
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction. - Proverbs 1:7 (ESV) It seems like there are smart people and 'smart people'. We live in a town with a BUNCH of very well-educated people. They know answers to things that I didn't even know were questions. They have some many letters behind their name that it looks like an alphabet soup. There are also 'smart people' that have what we often call 'street smarts'. They understand how the world works. They know people and what motivates and moves them. They know how to make a deal and they know how to just get stuff done. My question is...are either of these kinds of smart people wise? Proverbs describes something called wisdom that involves knowledge. It involves the ability to relate to people. Is this just some mash-up of the intellect and social skills? This week we begin our Walk with the Wise in Proverbs 1-9. We begin by seeing seeing what wisdom is for and where it comes from. I want to encourage you to take some time and read through Proverbs 1 to prepare your heart and mind. Looking forward to worshiping with you.

Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm. - Proverbs 13:20 (ESV) I feel smarter when I hang out with smart people. Many times, I may have no idea what they are talking about, but it just feels like my IQ goes up a point or two when they are around. Along the way I do pickup a thing or two which helps me learn and grow. Ever had that experience? This summer we are going to hang out, not with smart people, but with wise people. (There is a difference between intelligence and wisdom.) Scripture tells us that if we listen to the wise voices around us we will grow in our wisdom. This Sunday we start our summer series 'Walk with the Wise' looking at the first nine chapter of Proverbs. This week I'll be introducing to a few of the people we will be walking with this summer. I want to encourage you to take some time to read through Proverbs 9. The invitations in this chapter are the perfect introduction to a few of these folks.
