Ageless and practical proverbs part 2 - Inspirational short sermon series by The Commandment Co
In the hustle and bustle of life, sometimes we wish we had a clearer guide on how to live life, so we’ll be sharing with you a few ageless (and practical) proverbs for daily life!

 Receiving feedback well: The heart of the wise will easily accept instruction. But those who do all the talking are too busy to listen and learn. They'll just keep stumbling ahead into the mess they created ~ Prob 10:8 TPT
  1. Receiving feedback well
Throughout life, we’ll all realise that we were wrong at some point and we humbly learn from the mistake. Being able to admit that we were not entirely right could prevent us form landing in such a situation as in Proverbs 16:18.

Your boast becomes a prophecy of a future failure. The higher you lift up yourself in pride, the harder you'll fall in disgrace ~ Prob 16:8 TPT
  1. Procrastination
Everyone loves it, every does it. But Admiral William McRaven once said, “If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed… If you make your bed every morning, you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride, and it will encourage you to do another task and another and another…If you can’t do the little things right, you’ll never be able to do the big things right. And if by chance you have a miserable day, you will come home to a bed that is made, that you made. And a made bed gives you encouragement that tomorrow will be better.
Procrastination: Professional work habits prevent poverty from becoming your permanent business partner. And: if you put off until tomorrow the work you could do today, tomorrow never seems to come ~ Proverbs 24:33-34 TPT
  1. Building a successful career
The Bible doesn’t despise hard work. Who in their right mind would? But it reminds us that as we prioritise the Lord even as we work, He will build something more important than just a successful career, which a successful career cannot buy - the health and joy of our family!
Building a successful career: Go ahead, build your career and give yourself to work. But if you don't put me first, you'll see your family built up! ~ Proverbs 24:27 TPT
