I’m looking forward to being with you this Sunday as we continue our sermon series in Proverbs, “God’s Rx for Everyday Life.” Specifically, this Sunday we will look at God’s Rx for our speech – Proverbs 15.
The Book of Proverbs says that the power of life and death are in the tongue (Proverbs 18:21). Do you believe that ? What’s the nicest thing someone has said to you so far this week ? If you can think of that nicest thing, then you know the power of speech. If no one has said something nice to you –- or if you’ve been on the receiving end of harsh, meddlesome, gossiping, or slanderous words, then you know how destructive words can be.
The Lord says, in the Bible, to “encourage one another and build each other up” (1 Thessalonians 5:11), and to speak wholesome words that edify and give grace according to the need of the moment (Ephesians 4:29). This Sunday our goal will be to see how our words can begin to line up with the Lord’s prescription given in Proverbs 15 for words that are (a) pleasant, (b) wise, (c) prayerful, and (d) timely.
I hope you’ll join us at 10:15.
No Romans class this Sunday for adults.
Our hearts go out to David Kiser whose sister passed away this past weekend in Pennsylvania. David will be absent this Sunday, and therefore the Romans class for adults will not be held this Sunday, May 10. Thanks for your flexibility.
See you Sunday !
