What do you do with the "gray"areas in your life? What kind of woman or man should I marry? Which career path should I take? How should I spend my money? Do they really matter?Does God care about those areas or are we left alone to just figure it out? God uses the book of Proverbs to answer an emphatic "Yes! The gray areas do matter!"
God cares about the nuances that make a difference in our relationshipsand experiences every day. As we seek to follow him in everyday life, we can still make a mess of our lives, our families, our churches, our workplaces and our communities, if we are unwise. We need God's help moment by moment, down at the level where there are no hard and fast rules to go by. We all need God's wisdom in the gray! Gray Matters!
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
6 In all your ways acknowledge him,
7 Be not wise in your own eyes;
8 It will be healing to your flesh
9 Honor the Lord with your wealth
10 then your barns will be filled with plenty,
11 My son, do not despise the Lord's discipline
12 for the Lord reproves him whom he loves,
