Proverbs 22 How to Live in a Changing World

Proverbs 22

I asked someone just the other day, “How are our children supposed to live in a world that is more and more against the Lord and against those who follow Him?”

The answer is that they – and we – continue to live according to Scripture. The world changes – but the Word does not.

HOW SHOULD I LIVE IN A WORLD THAT IS MORE AND MORE UNFAMILIAR?

• with wisdom (v 3)
• with humility (v 4)
• with fear of the Lord (v 4)
• with generosity (v 9)
• with a pure heart (v 11)
• with gracious speech (v 11)
• with trust in the Lord (v 19)
• with financial wisdom (v 26-27)

I READ SCRIPTURE – BUT WHAT DO I DO WITH WHAT I HAVE READ (V 17-18)?

  1. Hear it.

Don’t just skim over the familiar. Don’t avoid the unfamiliar. Truly read and hear each word.

  1. Apply it.

How can I take what I just read and use it today? What do I need to do or stop doing? What does this passage tell me about God and who I am in relation to him?

  1. Keep it.

I need to take what I read and keep it within me as I go about my day. Let it determine how I respond to disappointment or frustration. Let it calm my nerves and cool my temper.

  1. Speak it.

Let the Word of God dictate how I speak. Make my words gracious, kind, truthful, and wise.
