Ageless and practical proverbs from the Commandment Co's Short sermon series
Many of us ’get used’ to the hustle and bustle of life, where we decide now what to do in the future and live with the decisions we’ve made. But sometimes we wish we could get a clearer guide on how to live, so we’ll be sharing with you a few ageless (and practical) proverbs for daily life!
Wisdom is the most valuable commodity - so buy it! Revelation knowledge is what you need - so invest in it! ~ Prov 4:6-7 TPT - Motivational short sermon series by TCCO
  1. Health of your soul
  Proverbs 27:7 TPT
Health of your soul: When your soul is full, you turn down even the sweetest honey. But when your soul is starving, every bitter thing becomes sweet ~ Prov 27:7 TPT
We often fill the void with anything we can find when we are deprived of love and affection. But when we allow ourselves to be loved by the Lord, these things of lesser value will no longer be appealing to us.
  1. Staying true to yourself
Proverbs 12:9 TPT
Staying true to yourself: Just be who you are and work hard for a living, for that's better than pretending to be important and starving to death ~ Prov 12:9 TPT
In this generation where everything is posted on social media, we only see and compare ourselves to the better halves of other’s lives. But the Word reminds us to stay true to who we are and live freely in the life God has given to us rather than project the perfect image of ourselves to others.
  1. Being a trustworthy friend
Proverbs 26:18-19 MSG
Being a trustworthy friend: People who shrug off deliberate deceptions, saying, "I didn't mean it, I was only joking," are worse than careless campers who walk away from smoldering campfires ~ Prov 26:18-19 MSG
Reputation can take years to build and tarnished in a moment. Who we are is more important than our achievements, so heed the advice of Proverbs 22:1.
A beautiful reputation is more to be desired than great riches, and to be esteemed by others is more honourable than to own immense investments ~ Prov 22:1 TPT
