Wood, Whisperers, and Wisdom

BIBLE PASSAGE FOR THIS SERMON
Sermon Application Questions – 7/26/20
- Is there some situation you are regularly in where you are tempted to “whisper” or to listen to “whisperings”? How might you best void sinning in that situation?
- The second half of Proverbs 26:22 says that the words of a whisperer “go down into the inner parts of the body.” What do you think that is trying to communicate? What is God warning us about there?
- Look up and read Proverbs 25:9. What does that proverb tell you about how you should handle something you feel needs to be addressed?
- As we are going through this series in Proverbs are you finding it challenging or easy to keep in mind that this is God’s grace for us? What helps you to remember that God’s moral instruction is a gracious gift?
For lack of wood the fire goes out, and where there is no whisperer, quarreling ceases. As charcoal to hot embers and wood to fire, so is a quarrelsome man for kindling strife. The words of a whisperer are like delicious morsels; they go down into the inner parts of the body.
Mike Bullmore is preaching today from Proverbs 26:20-22 in a sermon he has titled “Wood, Whisperers, and Wisdom”.
