I am grateful for every opportunity provided to preach the word of God. I am more thankful for the times when I get to preach in front of our home church. I appreciate Jon Akin and his willingness to share the pulpit at Fairview Church with me on some regularity. Yesterday I preached the second message in a seven week series on the seven deadly sins as they are seen in the book of Proverbs.
Proverbs 16:1-5, 17-19, 1 The reflections of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord . 2 All a man’s ways seem right to him, but the Lord evaluates the motives. 3 Commit your activities to the Lord , and your plans will be achieved. 4 The Lord has prepared everything for His purpose— even the wicked for the day of disaster. 5 Everyone with a proud heart is detestable to the Lord ; be assured, he will not go unpunished. 17 The highway of the upright avoids evil; the one who guards his way protects his life. 18 Pride comes before destruction, and an arrogant spirit before a fall. 19 Better to be lowly of spirit with the humble than to divide plunder with the proud.
