Life Giving Wisdom
Sun, Jul 14, 2019
But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, which shines brighter and brighter until full day. The way of the wicked is like deep darkness; they do not know over what they stumble. - Proverbs 4:18–19 (ESV) So far in our study of Proverbs we have heard the need to listen up and pay attention. Wisdom is available and calling, but we have to lean in and listen. When we do that, there are great benefits to be had that are both temporary and eternal. Then we find that this wisdom also has a role in protecting and healing. If you think you have made mistakes and maybe wisdom is beyond you, this week is for you. Lynn Oakes will be opening up Proverbs 4 for us. I want to encourage you to take a few minutes to read through the passage slowly and thoughtfully. Ask yourself what is your inclination toward wisdom? Where do you turn to be taught or find advice? And then come ready to worship together at 10:30 on Sunday.
Shrewdness is Scriptural
Sun, Jul 09, 2017
"The master commended the dishonest manager for his shrewdness. For the sons of this world are more shrewd in dealing with their own generation than the sons of light. And I tell you, make friends for yourselves by means of unrighteous wealth, so that when it fails they may receive you into the eternal dwellings." -- Matthew 16:8-9(ESV) We have all admired those stories about less than pure characters using only their brains to turn an impossible situation back to their advantage. Movies like The Sting, Ocean 11, and The Italian Job are modern stories like that. Jesus in Luke 16 uses a parable similar to those stories in an unusual way that teaches us some godly truths centered around a surprising character. This week, Lynn Oakes will be unraveling this strange parable about a dishonest manager in the first 16 verses of Luke 16. We encourage you to take a look at this parable before Sunday. Hope to see you and your friends there.
