SIMPLICITY OF LIFE

Give it away before it controls you

 

Proverbs 11:4

 

Riches profit not in the day of wrath; But righteousness delivereth from death

 

 

LESSON

 

Riches do not profit in the day of God’s wrath. The rich man in Jesus’ story about the rich man and Lazarus discovered this to be true. Noah is an example of the truth that “righteousness delivers from death.

To have integrity is to be consistently and predictably honest in your dealings & relationships. God’s people are to be people of integrity. Let us open our heart & learn that the true way is always the best way.

To have integrity, you must be wise. Wisdom is the skill of godly living. As Gerhard von Rad further explains, “Wisdom is becoming competent with regard to the realities of life – how things really happen, how things really are, and knowing what I should do about it.

 

Memory Verse: James 5:1
