1/3/14 Game Plan: Honor & Self-Control

1/3/14 Game Plan: Honor & Self-Control

Seven prayer warriors met this winter morning to study Proverbs 25.

Its verses provide God’s wisdom regarding honor, forgiveness and self-control.

The PAX identified the following takeaways from today’s readings.


Proverbs 25: 4, 5 ~ Remove the impurities from silver, and the sterling will be ready for the silversmith. Remove the wicked from the king’s court, and his reign will be made secure by justice.

Takeaway ~ Wise leaders seek good advisors and avoid letting the wicked influence their decisions. Does your counsel consist of wise rather than wicked advisors?


Proverbs 25: 13 ~ Like the cold of snow in the time of harvest is a faithful messenger to those who send him; he refreshes the soul of his masters.

Takeaway ~ “Faithful messegners”are being referenced like faithful and hard-working employees who make their employers proud. Do our actions show our faith in God and make Him proud?


Proverbs 25: 21 ~ If your enemies are hungry, give them food to eat. If they are thirsty, give them water to drink.

Takeaway ~ Praying for those who have harmed us shows that we trust that God will bring justice. Are praying for those who hurt us rather than holding judgment/grudges against them?

Have a great weekend and prepare your minds/hearts to review Proverbs 26 next Friday.
