“As iron sharpens iron,
    so one man sharpens another.

Proverb 27:17NIV 1984

 

  • We make each other better…we make each other sharper! Read 2 Timothy 4:2-5. Why do you think it is important for believers to sharpen each other?
  • Remember – over everything put on love! It is not about being right…it’s about building up the body. Read Romans 14 for insight.

Whoever trusts in his riches will fall,
    but the righteous will flourish like a green leaf.

Proverb 11:28ESV

Trust in your money and down you go!
    But the godly flourish like leaves in spring.

Proverb 11:28NLT

A life devoted to things is a dead life, a stump;
    a God-shaped life is a flourishing tree.

Proverb 11:28 The Message

  • Do you ever think that you need to have/hold/get material things to make you happy and sustain you? What is the result of depending on earthly things?
  • Instead, where should our focus be?
  • Read Matthew 6:19-21. How does this change your perspective on things of this world?

Proverbs 28:6

“Better is a poor man who walks in his integrity
than a rich man who is crooked in his ways.”

Proverb 28:6

  • It is always better to tell the truth than lie and be rich. Apply it to your own life…
  • Sometimes it seems easier to gain the whole world with just one lie…but Jesus says, ” For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? ” Matthew 6:26

Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today. Remember to read the entire passage

Proverbs 29:1

blue pennant write

“Whoever stubbornly refuses to accept criticism
will suddenly be destroyed beyond recovery.”

Proverb 29:1 NLT

  • It is certainly difficult to be criticized. But, it is necessary for growth. When we refuse to listen…we only mire ourselves more in  sin. What does this Proverb tell us will happen if we ignore rebuke?
  •  Listen to what Jesus Himself says, “’If another believer sins, rebuke that person; then if there is repentance, forgive. Even if that person wrongs you seven times a day and each time turns again and asks forgiveness, you must forgive.’” Luke 17:3-4 NLT
  • Are you closed off to rebuke? First, check it against God’s word (2 Timothy 3:16) then move forward knowing God is working in your life.
  • Is there anything in your life that is destroying you?
