What causes you to compromise that which you know in your heart to be morally righteous and true in the Lord’s eyes? What causes you to turn your moral compass in the wrong direction toward the “House of the Rising Sun?”  Solomon the wise warns us in the Book of Proverbs of this danger which, in each generation manifests itself in different ways. In our series, we have been talking about “Summer Wisdom” which should take us far beyond just the summer. Wisdom from above brings blessing for an entire lifetime and generations to come.

Work. It’s not always a very friendly word. To some, “work” evokes feelings of despair and bitterness. To others, they wish they could find good work, but they’re either stuck in a dead-end job or they’re physically unable to work. Others associate their identity and self-worth based off their work.

Terrorism is always meant to create fear among us. Recent world events can easily increase our anxiety. With God's help we can find peace.

And we can overcome evil with good.

Scripture: Romans 12:21

Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good.

Scripture: Psalm 27:1

The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom then shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life, of whom shall I be afraid?

 
The Company You Keep

7/10/2016 The Company You Keep: Provers 1:10-19

He who walks with wise men will become wise. But the companion of fools will suffer harm. Keeping good company will have that positive influence on your life that you desire.  Giving in to bad company will take you down the wrong path. Though they beseech you to come along with them, do not fall into their trap. The best company to keep is to spend time with the King of Kings and 'hang' with His people while inviting others along with you. The apostle Paul says, "Do not be deceived; bad company corrupts good character." So the choice again is ours. Wise or foolish. Good or bad character.

What is it that makes a person wise? Intellect? Upbringing? Education opportunities? Solomon the ‘wise’ brought everything in perspective along with another Old Testament Saint called Job (See Job 28:12-28 ). It all returns back to the Fear of the Lord. That’s where wisdom begins. Think about it. The ‘Owner’s Manual’ for life is always dependent on the designer and maker of the merchandise. You can choose to disrespect and misuse the merchandise and it will only lead to its ruin. Or, you can live according to the design out of appreciation of the one who put it all together. The ‘wise move’ is to respect and honor the Owner and stick to the Owner’s Manual.

Strong beginnings are sometimes overrated. Obviously, a strong start matters, but life is about how you finish. As we conclude this series on the life of Moses, it’s worth taking a few minutes to review his life. The best short summary of Moses’ life is given in Hebrews 11:23-29 , which is commonly known as the “Hall of Fame of Faith.” He didn’t end in disgrace, but he certainly didn’t finish the way he hoped. Once again, it’s a reminder that God used Moses in extraordinary ways not because Moses was so extraordinary, not because God is.
