"The Church That Prays...Taste the Glory!"

Healthy Nuggets From Sunday Morning Service

Sermon Entitled, "You Better Get This" by Bishop Rick Williams Sr.

Scripture References: Proverbs 5: 1-23

Often times in teaching or when we say something it may not go off the way you expect so will turn others off. Everyone wont agree.


University- Unity and diversity


In ANY relationship, if you are not careful of what you are doing you can find yourself out in the cold.


"Paul says follow me as I follow Christ."


Proverbs 4:1 King James Version (KJV)

1 Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding.


The definition of under means- below; to fall short, come under passing mark


The definition of standing means -standard; be erect; stand up; hold position; take a stand


Bring the two words together, understanding means :

"You are falling short but yet you are standing."


The definition of intelligence means- the ability to comprehend


"Sometimes we as Christians do not have understanding."


The kingdom of God works in reverse.


Examples:


"Someone doesnt speak to you, you speak to them."

"You make money, you sow it , not keep it."

"You pray for those that despitefully use you."


Point to ponder:


" When you are in odds with one anther, walk in love, "GOD WILL REPAY!"


The bible says for the older to teach the young.


"If you know an easier way to get somewhere, "Tell Someone!"


"Sometimes the navigation will guide you incorrectly."


Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.


Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all your getting get understanding.


If you don't get anything else, "YOU BETTER GET THIS!"


"IN ALL YOUR GETTING, GET UNDERSTANDING!"
