The Wisdom of Generosity
Generosity.  Most of us if asked would define ourselves as generous.   But what limits have we put on our generosity?  To whom are we generous?  Is there room for one more in our home, or two, or three, tonight?  Who has permission to "raid" your fridge?  Would you loan your car to a neighbor?  Often times we will respond to those questions with comments about being responsible etc.  There is great wisdom, and great refreshment, and great benefit to being generous.   It requires great faith to be generous.

    Warning Signs for The Path (Selected Proverbs)
    As we venture out on vacations and trips this summer we will find signs along the way. Signs provide guidance and warnings. We always do well to pay attention to them. As we look again at the instructions of a father and mother to their child we will note some very important warning signs that a wise person would do well to note and act upon.

    The Importance of the Heart (Proverbs 3:5-6; 4:23)
    Repeatedly in the Proverbs we are instructed about the heart. We are to protect our heart for it is the place in which we develop trust. It is in the heart where decisions are make, commands are stored, and knowledge is acquired. It becomes quite clear that in Proverbs we are talking about more than an organ that pumps blood. We will focus on two very important aspects of the heart that in many ways guide all other references; trusting and guarding. If we can learn to protect our hearts and trust God in our heart we can choose the path of wisdom.

    To Whom Do You Listen?
    The paths of life in the Proverbs are very clear. There is the way of wisdom and the way of folly. There is no middle ground in Proverbs. The question is to whom do you listen? We will look at the necessity and value of listening to the various sources of wisdom that are available in Proverbs. God uses many people in our lives to impart skill for living. It is our choice to take heed.

    Five People You Meet in Proverbs
    We can all think of people we have met in our lives that are the kind of folks we want to emulate. We can all think of people we have met who are the kind of individuals we would rather forget. We all know people who are somewhere in between those extremes. We can learn from them all. We will look at the wicked, the mocker, the fool, the sluggard, and the simple and see what we can learn from each one. More importantly we will need to look inward and see what God may want to change in each of us.

    Preparing for the Journey (Proverbs 1:1-7)
    No matter where we are on the journey of life, we find that we can use some direction. Living in the information age means that there is always something new to learn. How do we make sure we are focused on the right things? How can be make sure we are moving in the right direction? Oddly enough we find that a collection of instructions and sayings gathered some 3000 years ago can still keep us on the right path. It is our responsibility to understand God’s wisdom and then choose wisely.

    Free to Engage Culture
    For years we have heard of “culture wars.” The problem with that phrase is it creates an unhealthy “us against them” mentality. What we find in the Bible is a reminder that we are not to run from culture, but we are to engage the culture and be difference makers. We will consider how to do that from God’s Word today.

    Free to Be Real (3 John)
    Authenticity. It is one of the key terms of our age. It is a term that focuses on being true to who one is, being genuine, being real. But how does one know if they are truly being authentic? Today we will look at an often neglected letter of the New Testament and see some characteristics of authentic living.

    Free To Let Go (Ephesians 4:25-32)
    It is Mother’s Day. The life of a mom is often characterized by letting go. Mom’s are invested in teaching and training their children to grow and one day leave the “nest” and strike out on their own. But it is not an easy process. There are things we each need to release as we grow in our relationship with Christ. Today we will learn that there is great freedom and great reward in learning to let go.
