Wising Up: Whenever Life Happens

I am taking a 4 week Bible Study with Beth Moore in Proverbs. This week was a REALLY great week being that Erik and I have been meeting with a financial advisor trying to pay debt off and prepare for our future. I just wanted to share this outline with everyone in case you need to hear this as well. Sometimes money issues can be so stressful and Beth helps us to see how we can be in bondage to it and we DON'T have to be!

PART 1: Why Money is useless in the hand of a fool
  • Nothing attracts more pretense
  1. Proverbs13:7 and 19:4
  • Nothing proves less faithful
  1. Proverbs 23:4,5 (Compare Ecclesiastes 5:10)
  2. Proverbs 11:28 (Example Proverbs15:27) 1 Timothy 6:9-10
  3. Proverbs 19:22
  • Nothing invites more slavery.
  1. Matthew 6:24 "Devoted" : to cling to
  2. Proverbs 22:7 (Compare Proverbs 11:15)
  3. Deuteronomy 8:18

Part 2: Why money is useful in the hands of the wise.

  • Read Proverbs 3:9-10. GOD CAN BE HONORED WITH IT!
  1. 2 Corinthians 9: 6-9
  • Read Proverbs 11:25, 22:9 (Contrast 28:27): OTHERS CAN BE HELPED WITH IT!
  • Read Proverbs 2:8-9: WE CAN HAVE THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF IT
