Apple Envy and Living Wisely
I have become a bit obsessed lately with the Apple effect that I call "wet table" but that goes by many names. (update: I am referring to the graphic below. Notice the reflection of the mousetrap. Apple puts that on everything and now I seem to be doing the same thing.) You can see the slide for my lesson tomorrow below. It is just one place where I decided to use it. I really think I may need to complete a 12 step program to get me away from it.
I am wrapping up "How Not to be a Fool" tomorrow night and then moving into a study on LOVE just in time for Valentine’s Day. Pastor C, I would love to have what you made to file away for the next time that I use it. Send it to me in an email would you.
Studying for this lesson I came across a great couple of verses. The Jeremiah one has been a recurring verse in my life, but the Proverbs one was fresh for me, or at least for my notice. It just feels like my heart for students. If I could give students one thing it would be the ability to make wise choices.
16 This is what the LORD says:
"Stand at the crossroads and look;
ask for the ancient paths,
ask where the good way is, and walk in it,
and you will find rest for your souls.
1 My son, if you accept my words
and store up my commands within you,
2 turning your ear to wisdom
and applying your heart to understanding,
3 and if you call out for insight
and cry aloud for understanding,
4 and if you look for it as for silver
and search for it as for hidden treasure,
5 then you will understand the fear of the LORD
and find the knowledge of God.
6 For the LORD gives wisdom,
and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
