Gray matters

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 relationships and 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 24:30-24

I passed by the field of a sluggard,

by the vineyard of a man lacking sense,

31 and behold, it was all overgrown with thorns;

the ground was covered with nettles,

and its stone wall was broken down.

32 Then I saw and considered it;

I looked and received instruction.

33 A little sleep, a little slumber,

a little folding of the hands to rest,

34 and poverty will come upon you like a robber,

and want like an armed man. (Proverbs 24:30-34, ESV)
