Topics for 4/30/2019

We talked on Sunday about the wisdom that Proverbs has to offer regarding marriage. 

  1. We talked about a purposeful diversity in how biblical marriages are structured.  In other words, not all marriages look the same, and that is okay.  What is something that works in your marriage that might not be effective for other people?
  2. What is something in your marriage that works really well that you think others would do well to emulate?
  3. What is a mistake you have made in your marriage that others could learn from?
  4. We limited our focus on Sunday to specific passages in Proverbs concerning marriage.  What is another passage in Proverbs that doesn't speak about marriage, but could readily be applied to it?

Let's play Bible Scattergories!

We mentioned Sunday that the Books of Proverbs and James share several themes (i.e. James 1:19 and Proverbs 17:27-28 both encourage us to stay calm and listen more than we talk).

Find common themes in James and Proverbs. We will compare and mark off ones which multiple people have in common. Come prepared with up to 10 themes. Whoever has the most uniques wins.

Topics for 04-02-2019

On Sunday we focused on the ten speeches from a father in Proverbs 1-9.  Each of these speeches invites and pleads with us to see the value of wisdom for the Christian.

  1. Wisdom is making the truth of God's Word work in life.  We talked about the role of wisdom in connecting the principles of God's Word to the way we live our lives.  What is a way that you have had to use wisdom to decide the best course of action in a situation where there wasn't a direct command from the Bible?
  2. We also spoke briefly about the dangers of treating our application of God's Word as on par with the principles that it teaches.  What are some of those dangers?
  3. Proverbs as a book and especially chapters 1-9 speaks at great length about wisdom.  What is another passage that helps to inform our knowledge about what wisdom is, its value, or how to obtain it?
