Back to School: Spirit Night tonight!
It’s tonight! It will be awesome! Wear your school colors, bring a friend and expect God to show up!
Here is a preview of tonight’s message graphic…
My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee. Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine. (Proverbs 3:1-10)
1. What does he mean when he says “let thine heart keep my commandments”?
2. How does law and commandments add length of days, long life and peace?
3. What does “leaning on your own understanding” look like? What does it look like to acknowledge God in all your ways?
4. “Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.”. What does this mean and how does it apply to you?
