In the midst of all this, there is good news. It is the good news of the gospel.

JR. AND SR. HIGHS: Meet today by the offices for your class. Birth-3 years, Nursery Age 3 to Grade 5, Various rooms behind auditorium stage.
These days we have taken on the task of teaching from the book of Proverbs. This wonderful book is filled with insightful tidbits of wisdom. The name of the series is called “Epigram: The Wisdom of The Proverbs.” ‘Epigram’ is by definition ‘any witty, ingenious, or pointed saying tersely expressed.’ The book of Proverbs does just this very thing. It is full of wise sayings expressed in short little spurts. It is hard to read these verses without immediate personal application. Simple challenges to seek wisdom and run away from stupid behaviour are strewn throughout. We look forward to what God has to say to us through His word in this book. As we work through our series on the book of Proverbs, we want to challenge you to take a few minutes each day for personal reflection. For the next few months, why don’t you read one chapter of the Proverbs every day? This book of wisdom has thirty one chapters, so you can read the whole book in one month. You’ll be surprised how often God will use these inspired sayings to speak to you and through you.

Sermon Notes Sermon Series
Money and Possessions from Proverbs 1. There are extremes of wealth and poverty that provide unique temptations to those who live in them (Prov. 30:7-9). 2. Don’t worry about keeping up with the Jones’ (Prov. 12:9; 13:7). 3. 3The rich and poor are more alike than they think. (Prov. 22:2; 29:13) 4. You can’t out give God (Prov. 3:9-10; 11:24; 22:9). 5. Poverty is not pretty (Proverbs 10:24; 14:20; 19:4). 6. Money cannot give you ultimate security (Prov. 11:7; 11:28; 13:8). 7. The Lord hates those who get rich by injustice (Prov. 21:6; 22:16, 22-23). 8. The Lord loves those who are generous to the poor (Prov. 14:21, 31; 19:7;28:21) 9. Hard work and good decision-making usually lead to increased prosperity (Prov. 6:6-11; 10:4; 13:11; 14:24; 21:17, 20; 22:4, 13; 27:23-27; 28:20)
Sermon Notes (cont.) 10. Money isn’t everything, it does not satisfy (Prov. 23:4-5). • It is inferior to wisdom (Prov. 8:10-11, 18-19; 24:3-4). • It is inferior to righteousness (10:2; 11:4; 13:25; 16:8; 19:22; 20:17; 28:6). • It is inferior to the fear of the Lord (Proverbs 15:16). • It is inferior to humility (Prov. 16:19). • It is inferior to good relationships (Prov. 15:17;17:1).
Biblical truth about Money;
• If all you care about is getting more money, you are the biggest fool. • Money is a blessing from God, but you’ll be more blessed if you give it away. • God gives you money because he is generous, but he is generous with you so that you can be generous with others. And if you are generous with your money, God will likely be more generous with you. • It is wise to save money, but don’t ever think money gives you real security. • Wealth is more desirable than poverty, but wealth is not as good as righteousness, humility, wisdom, good relationships, and the fear of the Lord.
