Proverbs 26

Posted on by Bill Mann

A message by Pastor Bill Mann on Wednesday, January 10, 2018 at King’s Grace Fellowship. Proverbs 26:1-28 Introduction Tonight, we have the opportunity to study devotionally Proverbs 26. This Proverb has a bunch of proverbs that make a lot of sense when understood within the ancient context. Our job is to dig up these concepts, understand what it meant to the people of the time it was written in, then figure out how to apply it in today’s world. There are always sound principles that can be clearly seen in Proverbs and the clear call to heed the wisdom contained in them. Yet we sometimes disregard what we know to be good, better, or best and a disconnect emerges. So, we need a dedication to apply the wisdom of God to our life’s situations rather than beg God to deliver us from our poor choices. So, let’s begin tonight by ready Proverbs 26. This proverb can be grouped together in 4 main parts. Foolish People (vv. 1-12, except v. 2) Lazy People (vv. 13-16) People who lack common sense (vv. 17-28) Verses 1, 2, 8, 11, 18, and 22 make use of similes. Verses 6, 7, 9, 10, 14, 21, and … Read more »

Proverbs 25

Posted on by Bill Mann

A message by Pastor Bill Mann on Wednesday, December 20, 2017 at Kings Grace Fellowship. Proverbs 25 Introduction Twice in a row I get to teach. What a treat! I wanna jump right into Proverbs 25 tonight. So let’s get to reading. Highlight #1 – Wise Sayings (vs. 2,4) 1. God reveals, man discovers (v. 2) Proverbs 25:2 (NKJV) 2 It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter. I like this passage because it encouraged me to seek after the Lord more because I realize that I’ve only seen what’s He has revealed to me. There IS more! So much more! But I have to seek after Him with my whole heart. 2. All cleaned up (v. 4) Proverbs 25:4 (NKJV) 4 Take away the dross from silver, And it will go to the silversmith for jewelry. This has always spoke to me, each time I read it. Although I know God will take me just as I am, and He will use me with all of my warts. But, I want to become the masterpiece that Paul talks about Christ working in me. I think in … Read more »

Proverbs 24

Posted on by Bill Mann

A message by Pastor Bill Mann on Wednesday, December 13, 2017At Kings Grace Fellowship. Proverbs 24 Introduction Well, let’s get back to it. Tonight we want to look at Proverbs chapter 24. According to my calculations, I should be finished with Proverbs by August this next year. So I will attempt to do my best to not comment as I read the text. Let’s get to it! This proverb, has many sayings that I consider principles to live by. A diligent study would need to be done in order to stitch some of the thoughts together. I always ask myself, “Do these principles connect with each other?  And if so, how do they connect?” For most of us, we just read through the passage not pausing long enough to consider these things. It’s this pause that I believe is what God spoke to Joshua upon his ascent to the leadership following the death of Moses when he said: Joshua 1:8 (NKJV) 8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will … Read more »

Proverbs 23

Posted on by Bill Mann

A message by Pastor Bill MannOn Wednesday, November 15, 2017At Kings Grace Fellowship. Proverbs 23 Introduction Tonight, I want to continue our journey through Proverbs. We are into chapter is 23, and as my custom is I will read the passage first then share some highlights. This time I have grouped the highlights together with passage in the chapter that are pertinent to the highlight. I really enjoyed looking at this chapter in depth. I’m not sure that what came to the surface will change the course of Christianity, but it did give me some insights I had yet to consider. A simple outline from my reading would look like this: Stingy people (1-3, 6-8) Instead, do this: cast your bread … there are those who sow little Elusiveness of wealth (4-5) Withholding wisdom from fools (9) … “You might be a fool if . . . “ Boundaries (10-11) Discipline of Children (13-14) Warnings (15-35) Envying Those Who Disregard Wisdom (15-18) Alcohol & Food Excess (19-21) Bad Sex (22-28) Drunkenness (29-35) I was having a difficult time focusing on a single highlight. This chapter is filled with great stuff. Then I saw a few things as my eyes blurred … Read more »

Proverbs – Chapter 22

Posted on by Bill Mann

Introduction Tonight, I want to continue our journey through Proverbs. We are into chapter is 22, and as my custom is I will read the passage first then share some highlights. This time I have grouped the highlights together with passage in the chapter that are pertinent to the highlight. Proverbs 22:1–29 (NKJV) 1 A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, Loving favor rather than silver and gold. 2 The rich and the poor have this in common, The Lord is the maker of them all. 3 A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, But the simple pass on and are punished. 4 By humility and the fear of the Lord Are riches and honor and life. 5 Thorns and snares are in the way of the perverse; He who guards his soul will be far from them. 6 Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it. 7 The rich rules over the poor, And the borrower is servant to the lender. 8 He who sows iniquity will reap sorrow, And the rod of his anger will fail. 9 He who has … Read more »
