Proverbs 13c take the long view

  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. October 30, 2013 1
  2. 2. Proverbs 13:11 Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labor shall increase. When we earn what we get we appreciate it more, and we will have more tendency to make it last. 2
  3. 3. To work and work hard is not against our religion. Ephesians 4 28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labor, working with his hands the thing which is good (productive; of benefit), that he may have to give to him that needeth. Ecclesiastes 3 13 That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil -- this is the gift of God. (NIV) Working in the right spirit brings satisfaction. 3
  4. 4. Ecclesiastes 9 10 Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the grave, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom. (NIV) Our hands and mind must have something productive to do, if we are to find satisfaction in life. 4
  5. 5. Proverbs 13:11 Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labor shall increase. This verse is a warning. Easy money is not a godly desire. Let’s work with good will, happy to have a job. A godly worker will be on time, work hard, be dependable, trustworthy, and generous. 5
  6. 6. 12 Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. It is painful to wait on something we desire, but when it comes it is wonderful. First child Wait for healing. Wait on God to move for you; He will provide. 6
  7. 7. 13 Whoso despiseth the Word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the Commandment shall be rewarded. We choose what we get with the way we live. Anyone who despises the Word of God is choosing trouble in this life – even Christians. God’s Word warns us against a life of trouble. “Be not drunk.” “Flee fornication.” “Don’t lie, cheat, steal, or kill.” 7
  8. 8. 14 The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death. Be sober-minded Control your spirit; be temperate. Live a life of godly moderation. 8
  9. 9. 15 Good understanding giveth favor: but the way of transgressors is hard. You ignore the Word of God at your own peril. Wrong thinking or wrong mindset. Wrong talking; speak good words. Bad attitude leads to wrong behavior When anyone chooses to go this way, He or she is choosing a hard way. 9
  10. 10. The wages of sin is death. 10
  11. 11. 16 Every prudent man dealeth with knowledge: but a fool layeth open his folly. (TLB) 16 A wise man thinks ahead; a fool doesn’t and even brags about it! 11
  12. 12. Plan and save for future needs. 12
