During our Good Friday Service Mark talked about the two thieves hanging on either side of Jesus during His crucifixion. I really liked the contrast this picture presented of the condition of everyone in the world; either we humbly bow and asked God’s forgiveness, or we lean towards an arrogant attitude of doubting God and challenging Him to do something for us if He really exists. As be begin our study of Proverbs a similar contrast presents itself; will we be wise and listen to God’s instructions about life, or will we ignore God and live as we please. God’s always gives us His wisdom for our benefit and His glory; to ignore such teaching brings with it an unnecessarily difficult life.

"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction.” (Proverbs 1:7)

Ladies, I’m excited to have you join me as we look in detail at the great and perfect wisdom of God during the next few weeks on Thursday mornings. We cannot ignore the instructions of the Proverbs. Please join us for this very encouraging study.

This coming Thursday morning Patricia will be leading our class while Mark and I are attending our area wide fellowship of churches meetings in Everett. We will return on Saturday.

Our dear babysitters will once again be caring for our little ones.

Please be praying for Bonnie Campbell who lost her dear twin brother this week. Also, pray for Gary and Roberta Cowden as he is in extremely serious health.
