This study is part of our series of verse by verse studies of Proverbs, the 20th book in the Bible. Taught by Sim Forder, one of our pastors, at our Sunday morning service on the 17th October 2021. You can watch or listen on this web page or save the audio for later listening.
Summary of this study
As we move through these chapters, we see Solomon build on points made in earlier chapters – regarding the use of our tongue, our willingness to be corrected, and our walk in the Lord. We also read that we should control our tempers, and use good words for good reasons. But for any of what we read to help us, we need to be willing to listen, humble enough to learn, and wise enough to apply what we hear from God’s Word.
- Do our words honour the Lord?
- Are our tempers in control?
- Are we willing to be corrected?
- Are we doing what is right in our own eyes, or God’s eyes?
