Proverbs Sermon Series

Morning Services – March 2019

Lent is a time in the Church’s calendar for reflection, refocus and renewal.

Since ancient times, Christians have used the weeks leading up to Easter for training, discipline, fasting and self-denial – sometimes going a bit over the top in their asceticism, even resorting to hair shirts and flagellation!

These days, we are probably more likely to err on the side of comfort and complacency, but it is good and healthy to spend a period of time evaluating if we have our life in the right balance.

Are we tending towards workaholism? Are we investing in family life? Are our friendships enriching and life-giving? Is what comes out of our mouths wholesome and honest?

What wisdom might God impart to us regarding those four areas of life if we were to slow down and ask him? He might point us to the Book of Proverbs in the Bible, which covers these and many other practical details of life.

So we are going to be looking at some of these Proverbs over four weeks in the month of March.
