DAY 1 OF WEEK 3

o   Proverbs Chapter 11: Where’s the Integrity?

God loves humble people with integrity who are righteous. During Solomon’s time, people found this right standing by following rules and giving God sacrifices when they fell short of these rules. Today, we find it through Jesus Christ.

  DAY 5 OF WEEK 2

      Proverbs Chapter 10: Righteousness vs. Wickedness

I’m gonna be honest here. This chapter makes my eyes cross (that probably happens to me when I read the Bible more than it does for most people). One of the things I like to do to eliminate some of that confusion is to break passages up into bite-sized chunks.

      DAY 4 OF WEEK 2
      
     Proverbs Chapter 9: Wisdom vs. Folly

One thing that stuck out to me in this chapter is that there are a lot of similarities between Wisdom and Folly. The difference is in what they are offering and the type of life that results in following each of them.

  DAY 3 OF WEEK 2 
      
     Proverbs Chapter 8: You Gotta Trust God’s Word

This is one of those passages in the Bible that I love to read slowly and over and over again. I feel like I get a small taste of how amazing God is when I read it. I also feel an enormous sense of gratitude in knowing that He wants me to have the same wisdom that has been by His side since the beginning of time.

ECLIPSE August Series: Misconceptions That Dim The Light!
How often have you misjudged someone?  We all do it.  We assume something about a person based on what we've heard, or what we've seen.  It's not until we really listen and get to know them that we realize just how wrong we've been.  We do the same thing with God sometimes.  We misjudge His character sometimes because of we've heard or maybe because it seems like our prayers have gone unanswered.  When we let our misconceptions about God eclipse our view of Him, dimness grows and light fades.  In the month of August, we will turn the light of three essential truths about God and His character that will enable us to get to know Him better. 

Madness
If you are a middle or high school student, join us next Monday, July 31st from 7:00 to 9:00 PM in the student center for food, fun, and games.

DAY 4 OF WEEK 1

Proverbs Chapter 4: More of the Same

Chapter 4 comes across as a reiteration. All four of these chapters word it a bit differently, but it’s altogether the same key points. I guess these principles really are important, right?

   DAY 2 OF WEEK 1

      Proverbs Chapter 2: Simple Knowledge

This wisdom Solomon keeps speaking about isn’t simple knowledge that we learn by living life, learning from our mistakes, etc. It doesn’t just come by natural means. Godly knowledge comes by seeking God fervently by reading the Bible, talking to Him in prayer, and seeking His will for our lives specifically.

     DAY 1 OF WEEK 1

      Proverbs Chapter 1: Wisdom That Shouts!


This wisdom in Proverbs makes itself undeniably obvious to us. It “shouts at us” right in the middle of where we exist. This wisdom contains the answers that we so desperately search for.

DAY 5 OF WEEK 4


Ephesians 4:25; Psalms 90:12
Be a Man in Community
Friends don’t waste each others’ time with lies. We ‘are members of one another’ – that is, we’re family. When you enter the kingdom of God, you get a whole new family. If you’ve had bad family experiences, you get to choose who your family is. When we choose to be a part of the body of Christ, we give up the right to ‘drama.’ If we’re truly focused on reaching people together, to tell them the truth of Jesus, we don’t have time for rumors, lies, etc. Spend your conversations on worthwhile issues.
Practical Steps
  1. Pray this morning that God would give you wisdom to discern the difference between just ‘talking about someone’ and ‘gossiping.’

DAY 4 OF WEEK 4
Hebrews 10:24-25; 1 Thessalonians 5:11
Be a Man in Community
Our friendships are often founded through common interests – sports, media, etc. It can’t stop there. Paul is clear – friendships are strongest when their conversations are focused on ‘love and good works.’ Hebrews specifically tells us we need to meet together. This seems simple enough, but it reminds us – it takes effort to have friends. Friendships typically drift away for one reason: two people stop putting in the effort. Commit today to putting in the energy it takes to maintain solid, Godly friendships.
Practical Steps
  1. Pray this morning that God would remind you daily of the importance of your friendships, and be sure to connect with at least one friend this week or next.
