Proverbs 30

January 30, 2010

Proverbs 30:8-9 Keep falsehood and lies from me; give me neither poverty nor riches , but give me only my daily bread. Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you and say, ‘Who is the Lord?’ Or I may become poor and steal, and so dishonor the name of my God. What does it […]

Proverbs 29

January 29, 2010

Today’s Proverb speaks to me about justice and anger.  I’ve heard anger defined as a reaction to a perceived injustice.  So, I think there is some significance at looking at the two words together.  Without an understanding of God’s justice, I think we create our own.  I believe the warnings in the text regarding anger […]

Proverbs 28

January 28, 2010

I have to make time in my schedule to have a 2-way conversation with God. This week each time my calendar chimes with a 10-minute warning, I’m going to stop and pray. Sometimes speaking, sometimes listening.

Proverbs 27

January 27, 2010

Another set of wisdom statements seemingly running all over the place. Lots here on glaring faults, such as presumption, boastfulness, being a jerkhead, having envy; lots on relationships and cultivating friendships; lots on being attentive to signs around you and getting along; lots on diligence and hard work and the difficulty of getting through to […]

Haiti Relief Update (1/26)

January 26, 2010

Luke 17:10  So you also, when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, “we are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty.” The current status of collections stands at a jar of peanut butter and a box of multiple vitamins and supplements. We need your help. We will be collecting […]

Proverbs 26

January 26, 2010

What would you give for some friendly advice? Not just any advice, but really good advice that could improve each one of the relationships you have. Would you pay me $5, $10, $100 or even more. Maybe you are looking for a link to the newest self-help book at Barnes & Noble. Maybe this advice […]

Proverbs 25

January 25, 2010

Like A Good Neighbor…. Proverbs Is There! Isn’t it funny to think about neighbors? If you have moved very much in your life then you have undoubtedly experienced many different kinds of neighbors. Neighbors can be helpful, handy, and sometimes even hurtful. So it seems like it would be fair to say that maybe there […]

Proverbs 23

January 23, 2010

Proverbs 23:17 “Do not let your heart envy sinners, but always be zealous for the fear of the Lord.” How easy is it for us to envy those who get ahead unhampered by Christian responsibility or God’s laws. Haven’t we all been guilty of this at sometime in our lives? I have been in conversation […]

Proverbs 21

January 21, 2010

Today’s chapter is all over the map with advice on: leadership, marriage, personal character, planning for the future, bribes (promoting them!), and more. Here’s what challenged me most:

Proverbs 20

January 20, 2010

“Reject passivity, accept responsibility, lead courageously, and expect God’s greater reward.” The guys who have gone through Men’s Fraternity (sessions offered by New Life) carry a key chain with those words. Much like this slogan, Proverb 20 speaks to my masculine heart and challenges me.  Some of the words seem to reference the character of […]
