Yesterday we kicked off our series for the next month: ROAD SIGNS. Our “bottom line” was simply this: Your DIRECTION, not your INTENTION, determines your DESTINATION. We journeyed through Proverbs 7 and looked at a story of a young man what was clearly on a path where his intention didn’t trump his direction. The question for us to think about was this: What path are you on and where is it taking you?
Over the next 31 days, we’re journeying through the book of Proverbs together. And while we will dance around the Proverbs during the VINE, we are encouraging everyone to read through the Proverbs on their own over the next 31 days. The book of Proverbs is all about wisdom, and all of us need more of that. Last night we read through Proverbs 1 together in our LIFE GROUPS and CRUX, so today. . . we’re onto Proverbs 2!
Remember: if you are fumbling through the thee’s and thou’s, there’s nothing wrong with reading another version. Go to www.youversion.com and try another version (NLT, CEV, or NIV might be good places to start)!
What insight/wisdom have you gained so far? What have you learned from God’s Word?
My child, listen to what I say, and treasure my commands. Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. Cry out for insight, and ask for understanding. Search for them as you would for silver; seek them like hidden treasures. Then you will understand what it means to fear the Lord, and you will gain knowledge of God. (Proverbs 2:1-5)
