2021 THEME: Life on the Edge
Series: Life Matters
TITLE: Be Sensible-Be Wise
Scripture: Eccl. 10
It is possible to live our entire lives from the wrong (perspective). Believing we are right, we can be wrong.
I. BE SENSIBLE
Three main categories of wisdom vs folly:
1. (Advantages vs Disadvantages) “It is safer to meet a bear robbed of her cubs than to confront a fool caught in foolishness.” Pr.17:12 (NLT) “Fools’ words get them into constant quarrels; they are asking for a beating.” Pr.18:6 (NLT)
2. (Humility and Patience) vs. Popularity and Partiality.
3. (Risks vs. Stupidity).
II. BE WISE
Two advantages of being wise:
1) Wisdom prepares the way for (success). (v.10) “Using a dull ax requires great strength so sharpen the blade. That’s the value of wisdom; it helps you succeed.” (NLT)
2) Wisdom (thinks ahead), before the fact.
