Gray Matters - Week 9 - The Unloved Other

Gray Matters

Speaker: Ty Neal
Date: November 03, 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 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 30;21-23 & 31

Under three things the earth trembles;

under four it cannot bear up:

22 a slave when he becomes king,

and a fool when he is filled with food;

23 an unloved woman when she gets a husband,

and a maidservant when she displaces her mistress. (Proverbs 30:21-23, ESV)

the strutting rooster, the he-goat,

and a king whose army is with him. (Proverbs 30:31, ESV)
