You’re either going to lean into God — or — you’ll lean into the world.
You’re either going to listen to the Word of God — or — you will be listening to the message of this world. And, you know, the message of this world is coming at you faster than ever today and the message today is more destructive than ever.
So, you’ve got a choice. Which kingdom will you serve? Which message are you going to listen to?
There are 31 days in most months. There are 31 Proverbs. Here is a pearl of wisdom from today’s Proverb that ties in EXACTLY with what we heard at manschool this morning… “A person’s own folly leads to their ruin, yet their heart rages against the LORD.”
If you’ve never been a Bible reader, now’s your chance to do a 180 and get into the Word. The enemy loves to whisper to you “that Bible-reading stuff isn’t for you”. Negate that lie. End it … today! Today, you can change the course of your life and end this lie by reading a Proverb a day.
In so doing, you’re blocking out time to listen to wisdom, to listen to the Word of God and to invite conversation with the Father. And you’re also drowning out what the world is shouting at you.
It’s easy. You’ve just got a choice to make. Five minutes on facebook or Twitter or the ESPN app … OR … five minutes in Proverbs?
