Proverb 29:20 MSG

  • Do you think you are always right?
  • Think again…open your heart and mind to the leading of God and to the advice of others.
  • This doesn’t mean you always have to believe others are correct, but be willing to listen and consider. Test it against God’s word and His leading.

Proverb 29:20ESV

There is more hope for a fool

    even simpletons are better off than they are.

Proverb 29:20 MSG

  • Do you think before you speak?
  • Unfortunately, I think I end up in the fool catagory a little too much here. I react to quickly to comments and words I see as slights. Usually the spoken words are not intended that way…but it’s too late! Have you ever had this experience?
  • Pray about it and ask God to change your heart.

“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.

  • Instead, where should our focus be?
  • Read Matthew 6:19-21. How does this change your perspective on things of this world?
