PROVERBS: a WORD TO THE WISE

  | 

Series: Proverbs: A Word to the Wise

Topic: Be Humble

Text: Proverbs 27:2, James 4:10 and Matthew 18:1-4

SCRIPTURE:  Humility doesn’t come naturally, does it? And our culture doesn’t seem to honor it either. Jesus’ disciples struggled too. Talk about Matthew 18:1-4. What did Jesus mean by His words about children?

ACCOUNTABILITY: We talk about valuing ourselves as creations of God, and yet we are taught to be humble throughout Scripture. How do these two things work together?

TRANSFORMATION: “Pride” is the subject of much of the Bible. We are shown examples of where pride can take us and what it does to ourselves and our relationships. Talk with your group about some personal battles with pride.

Conversely, talk about “humility.” Who do you know who seems truly humble? Why do you see them that way? 

“Pride makes us artificial and humility makes us real.” Thomas Merton

He Gets Us

Though Jesus walked the earth 2,000 years ago, He still knows about the problems you face today. Not only does Jesus know what plagues us as a culture, He gets us. Jesus can relate. He was tempted, too. He was disrespected, too. He was doubted, too. He mourned, too. He suffered, too.

Faith Church is joining other churches in the Chicagoland area for the series, He Gets Us. We’ll explore that Jesus knows about our insecurity, exhaustion, anxiety, guilt, loneliness and grief. Join us for this new series as we find assurance in knowing we aren’t alone in this world. We have a Savior who gets us and cares about what we are feeling.
