Work brings profit, but mere talk leads to poverty! Proverbs 14:23

 

IF YOU DON’T MAKE IT A PRIORITY IT WILL NEVER BE A REALITY

 

A mirror reflects a man’s face, but what he is really like is shown by the kind of friends he chooses. Proverbs 27:19 TLB

 

This is the case of a man who is all alone, without a child or a brother, yet who works hard to gain as much wealth as he can. But then he asks himself, “Who am I working for? Why am I giving up so much pleasure now?” It is all so meaningless and depressing. Ecclesiastes 4:8

 

DON’T LET SOMETHING AS FRIVOLOUS AS YOUR CALENDAR DESTROY SOMETHING AS SERIOUS AS YOUR SPIRITUAL LIFE!

 

Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life. Psalms 139:23-24

 

  1. DO I NURTURE IMPORTANT RELATIONSHIPS?

 

Under Christ's control the whole body is nourished and held together by its joints and ligaments, and it grows as God wants it to grow. Colossians 2:19

 

WE ARE CREATED FOR AND WE GROW IN THE CONTEXT OF COMMUNITY

 

2.   DO I SETTLE IN HARMFUL RELATIONSHIPS?

 

Walk with the wise and become wise; associate with fools and get in trouble. Proverbs 13:20

 

You must warn each other every day, while it is still “today,” so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against God. Hebrews 3:13

 

(THESE WORDS AND SCRIPTURES ALL ON ONE SLIDE AT THE SAME TIME)

LAZY 2 Thess. 3:6-10, Prov. 12:24

 

ANGRY Prov. 22:24-25, Prov. 16:32

 

IMMORAL 1 Cor. 5:9-11, Eph. 5:3-7, 1 Cor. 15:53

 

GREEDY Eccl. 5:10-11, Prov. 23:6-7, Prov. 15:27

 

UNBELIEVING 2 Cor. 6:14-17, Ps. 53:1, Ps. 1:1

 

The righteous person is a guide to his friend, but the path of the wicked leads them astray. Proverbs 12:26

 

WE ARE TO BE POSITIVE INFLUENCERS NOT NEGATIVELY INFLUENCED

“To serve someone here on earth and not point them to Jesus is like inviting someone to heaven and not telling them how to get there.  That would be cruel.” Chris Hodges

 

You cover the altar of the Lord with tears, with weeping and crying; so He does not regard the offering anymore, nor receive it with goodwill from your hands. Yet you say, “For what reason?” Because the Lord has been witness between you and the wife of your youth, with whom you have dealt treacherously; yet she is your companion and your wife by covenant.” Malachi 2:13-14

 

SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE DO CONSISTENTLY WHAT AVERAGE PEOPLE DO OCCASIONALLY AND THAT APPLIES TO YOUR MARRIAGE!

 

3.   DO I INITIATE MEANINGFUL RELATIONSHIPS

 

Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

 

TAKE HOME

 

  • GET ON A SERVE TEAM

 

  • JOIN A LIFE GROUP

 

I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends. John 15:15 NIV
