As a young church looking down the road at the long life that we have before us, we are filled with questions and opinions about how to live well, what to do next and why following Jesus matters in it all. We need wisdom for living this life and God graciously gives it to us through his Word.
Our Live. Work. Play. WISDOM. series offers us a chance to look at a few of the things that matter most in life. Starting with the book of Proverbs we’ll look to Scripture for wisdom from God on the everyday matters of life. How are we to follow Jesus in our work, sex, marriage, words, money, friendships and more?
Proverbs and Jesus—the Living Word—lead us to see that wisdom begins with “the fear of the Lord” (Proverbs 1:7), that trusting and leaning on the Lord brings “healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones” (3:5-8) and that those who arrogantly
reject wisdom’s cry will fall victim to their own brokenness (1:29-33). May we be those who walk wise in the fear of the Lord with humility enough to admit, we’ve got a lot to learn!
