Importance of Wisdom

July 5, 2015 Speaker: Sam Burke Series: Walk Wise

Topic: Sunday Message Verse: Proverbs 3:13–3:13

Walk Wise

Proverbs are PRINCIPLES not PROMISES

Right, Wrong or Something Else

There are many choices and decisions that we make in life that don't necessarily fit "neatly" into the categories of RIGHT and WRONG.

The Better Question

We need a better question to ask ourselves other than "Is it right or wrong." We need to begin to ask ourselves "IS IT WISE?"

God VALUES wisdom

Proverbs 3:13 NIV

Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding,

God VALUES wisdom

Proverbs 4:5 NIV

Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or turn away from them.

God VALUES wisdom

Proverbs 24:13-14 NIV

Eat honey, my son, for it is good; honey from the comb is sweet to your taste. Know also that wisdom is like honey for you: If you find it, there is a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.

God VALUES wisdom

Deuteronomy 4:6 NIV

Observe them carefully, for this will show your wisdom and understanding to the nations, who will hear about all these decrees and say, "Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people."

Jesus VALUED wisdom

Matthew 7:24 NIV

"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.

The Benefits of Walking Wise

Proverbs 2:1-11 NIV

My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding— indeed, if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the lord and find the knowledge of God. For the lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He holds success in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless, for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones. Then you will understand what is right and just and fair—every good path. For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul. Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you.

The BIG IDEA

Desiring the WISE CHOICE leads to GOD'S VOICE.

IS THIS WISE (based on...)

1) My Past REGRETS & FAILURES 2) My present REALITIES & STRUGGLES 3) My future HOPES & DREAMS

The WALK WISE CHALLENGE

Read through a Proverb a day for the next 2 months and begin to WALK WISE.
