Gray Matters - Week 3 - Trust Wisely

Gray Matters

Speaker: Jeremy Martin
Date: September 23, 2013

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!

Proverbs 3:5-12

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,

and do not lean on your own understanding.

In all your ways acknowledge him,

and he will make straight your paths.

Be not wise in your own eyes;

fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.

It will be healing to your flesh

and refreshment to your bones.

Honor the Lord with your wealth

and with the firstfruits of all your produce;

10 then your barns will be filled with plenty,

and your vats will be bursting with wine.

11 My son, do not despise the Lord's discipline

or be weary of his reproof,

12 for the Lord reproves him whom he loves,

as a father the son in whom he delights. (Proverbs 3:5-12, ESV)
