Everywhere – 30 September 2018
We are taking a break from our current sermon series this week to chew on a proverb. A proverb is a special kind of biblical writing. It isn’t like other kinds of writing in the Bible. It’s not like an epistle. It’s not like Law or History or a Psalm or a Gospel. A proverb is its own thing. It is a short statement of wisdom, a pithy saying in just a few lines, often just one two-lined sentence, that gives wisdom for living skillfully in God’s world.
A proverb is a short saying that is meant to make a person think about biblical living in the world that God rules. And here’s a real key to reading and understanding and using the Proverbs: Treat them like a piece of gum. Take some time and chew on it.
Pastor Matt preaching on Proverbs 15:3.
