Wise Up! study in Proverbs

Our lives are so hectic today. From overflowing email inboxes, SmartPhones, texts, multiple calendars, exercise, meetings, kids schedules, rehearsals, games, practices, dinner, and the list could go on and on.

We are so busy that we sometimes don’t have time – No, we don’t MAKE time –to listen, to think, and to rest. We don’t make time for the things that matter, this is a margin issue.

Proverbs 8 is the voice that calls to us to listen to the counsel that will advise on the path to follow. It is an opportunity to listen to the voice of God tell us how much we are loved and cared for.

Take some time to listen, and learn the rhythms of grace that will restore and empower you to be the person you want to be.
