Pastor Mike McClenahan continues the message series, "For the Life of the World," with Part 23: "Wisdom—Loving and Serving."
Key Idea: Knowledge helps us love and serve better.
Key Verse: Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding, 14 for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold. 15 She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. Proverbs 3:13-15 (NIV)
Key Passage: "Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash." 28 When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching. 29 because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law. Matthew 7:24-29 (NIV)
