Proverbs 3:3-12 as a Compass for Life

When the Bible prescribes “wisdom” for our lives, it’s talking about skill in living.   Wisdom is knowing how to and being willing to apply the knowledge that I have in my head.   The Bible’s book of Proverbs deals extensively with the most fundamental skill of all—practical, holy living in the sight of our Creator.

This sermon explores Proverbs 3:3-12 as a kind of mini-guide to a God-glorifying living.   Take 34 minutes, open your Bible, and ask, “How much more stable and fulfilling could my life be if I treated these five points as the major compass points of my existence?”

  • Delightfully rooted: trusting in the LORD with all of my heart (Prov. 3:3-5)
  • Obediently responsive: not leaning on my own understanding (Prov. 3:5-6)
  • Cautiously humble: guarding against being wise in my own eyes (Prov. 3:7-8)
  • Sacrificially generous: honoring the LORD with my resources (Prov. 3:9-10)
  • Steadfastly anchored: looking at difficulties with godly perspective (Prov. 3:11-12)
