Proverbs 15e it's choosing time

  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. Wed 1-29-2014 1
  2. 2. Proverbs 15:13 A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken. If you’re happy notify your face. Neither happiness nor sorrow is the result of circumstances, although most people think so. Condition 2
  3. 3. We can choose to be happy and content. For every minute you are angry or irritated, you lose 60 seconds of happiness. Nobody can make you angry; you choose to get angry. Cultivate an attitude of gratitude. Focus your mind on the good things in your life. 3
  4. 4. Don’t give anyone else power over your state of mind. Choose to make the better response to annoyances. Some people need a sign to wear around their neck. But we still choose how we will respond. 4
  5. 5. James 4 7-8 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double-minded. Become single-minded When we are in close fellowship with our Lord, nothing can steal our joy. Anyone who is unhappy and their mind is in turmoil, needs first to genuinely repent from sin. They need to focus like a laser. On God’s Way of living. 5
  6. 6. We may not choose directly how we feel, but we can choose the way we think, what we say, and what we do; The way we think, the words we speak, and the deeds we do determine how we feel. 6
  7. 7. 14 The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness. A person of understanding (intelligence and wisdom) is hungry for knowledge. A fool doesn’t want to learn, isn’t going to learn, hinders everyone else from learning. 7
  8. 8. Proverbs 2 (TLB) 1-2 Every young man who listens to me and obeys my instructions will be given wisdom and good sense. 3 Yes, if you want better insight and discernment, 4 and are searching for them as you would for lost money or hidden treasure, then wisdom will be given you and knowledge of God Himself; 5 you will soon learn the importance of reverence for the Lord and of trusting Him. Don’t choose to die with the mind of a fool. Choose to learn and become a man or woman of God. 8
  9. 9. 15 All the days of the afflicted (depressed) are evil: but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast. Never a good day. Always defeated. Seldom a bad day. 9
  10. 10. 16 Better is little with the fear of the LORD than great treasure and trouble therewith. Money doesn’t always bring trouble. It depends on the person. There are those whom God can bless with abundance and it will bring joy and peace. Mindset 10
  11. 11. Those who love the Lord and obey His Word will be happy no matter their circumstances. Sincerely James 1 8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. 11
  12. 12. Choose If part of you wants to serve the Lord, but part of you wants to live for the pleasure of this world – Choose. Joshua 24 15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. 12
