Proverbs 19a

  1. 1. 1 Gospel Baptist Tabernacle 781 Salem Road, Rossville, GA 30741 Where the Love of God abounds, everyone is welcome. Children’s Church taught by Paul and Marsha Davis during preaching. 6-25-2014
  2. 2. 2 Fifth Sunday June 29 Lakeview Voting Precinct On Hudson Street behind Lakeview Middle School on Cross Street. Paul D is bringing a microwave.
  3. 3. 3 Proverbs 18:23 The poor useth intreaties; but the rich answereth roughly. Unfortunately a poor person’s plea for mercy from a rich person is often met with harsh words. This does not excuse such a response; it simply states a fact. Arrogant treatment of less fortunate people is wrong. Indirectly this verse warns against characteristics that might lead to poverty such as laziness, stinginess, unteachableness , and talkativeness.

  4. 4. 4 In other words, since the poor are often treated badly by some people, Strive not to be in that poor circumstance.
  5. 5. 5 18:24 A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother. A hateful, grouchy person will not usually make friends. Be friendly!
  6. 6. 6 A terribly shy person may not have many friends. Reach out to people; be friendly. Most people will respond.
  7. 7. 7 And let’s be that friend who sticks closer than a brother. The best way to see a church grow is to reach out to people who don’t have a church home. Then become a real friend in good times and bad.
  8. 8. 8 Proverbs 19 1 Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse (false) in his lips, and is a fool. 1 Peter 3 10 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: Psalm 14 1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. ….
  9. 9. 9 God teaches us that it is better to be poor (destitute) than to be a liar or to deny God in the way we live. Poor here = destitute = without necessities Without food and clothing Does that mean that God will allow His children to go hungry and naked? Not if we live life His Way! Not if we are His obedient children.
  10. 10. 10 Matthew 6 31 Therefore take no thought (don’t worry), saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your Heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His Righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Sinners seek after food, drink, clothing and other material possessions and earthly pleasures. The children of God Almighty don’t need to.
  11. 11. 11 God will add to our lives whatever we need, as we seek God and His Righteousness. Worship and pray Be faithful
  12. 12. 12 Enjoy godly pleasures; It doesn’t take sin to have fun.
  13. 13. 13 Matthew 6 34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Philippians 4 4 Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice. 5 Let your moderation (gentleness; self-restraint) be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
  14. 14. 14 6 Be careful (anxious) for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
  15. 15. 15 8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. 9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you. These are a few of the principles of living life God’s Way. He will bless His obedient children.
