The Curse and the Cure

From the sermon series, “The Way of Wisdom”

Sermon text: Proverbs 3:33–35

The LORD’s curse is on the house of the wicked,
     but he blesses the dwelling of the righteous.
Toward the scorners he is scornful,
     but to the humble he gives favor.
The wise will inherit honor,
     but fools get disgrace.

You and Your Neighbor

From the sermon series, “The Way of Wisdom”

Sermon text: Proverbs 3:28–33

Do not say to your neighbor, “Go, and come again,
     tomorrow I will give it”—when you have it with you.
Do not plan evil against your neighbor,
     who dwells trustingly beside you.
Do not contend with a man for no reason,
     when he has done you no harm.
Do not envy a man of violence
     and do not choose any of his ways,
for the devious person is an abomination to the LORD,
     but the upright are in his confidence.
The LORD’s curse is on the house of the wicked,
     but he blesses the dwelling of the righteous.

The Unspeakable Advantage of Wisdom

From the sermon series, “The Way of Wisdom”

Sermon text: Proverbs 3:21–26

My son, do not lose sight of these—
     keep sound wisdom and discretion,
and they will be life for your soul
     and adornment for your neck.
Then you will walk on your way securely,
     and your foot will not stumble.
If you lie down, you will not be afraid;
     when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
Do not be afraid of sudden terror
     or of the ruin of the wicked, when it comes,
for the LORD will be your confidence
     and will keep your foot from being caught.

Wisdom's Profitable Way

From the sermon series, “The Way of Wisdom”

Sermon text: Proverbs 3:13–18

Blessed is the one who finds wisdom,
     and the one who gets understanding,
for the gain from her is better than gain from silver
     and her profit better than gold.
She is more precious than jewels,
     and nothing you desire can compare with her.
Long life is in her right hand;
     in her left hand are riches and honor.
Her ways are ways of pleasantness,
     and all her paths are peace.
She is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her;
     those who hold her fast are called blessed.
