    The ABC’s of Wisdom: Building Character with Solomon – Introduction

    Almost everyone agrees that we are living in a day of moral and cultural confusion.

    The ABC’s of Wisdom: Building Character with Solomon – Counsel

    COUNSEL   God’s Gift to Fools   Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed. Proverbs 15:22   This particular piece of advice is repeated several times in Proverbs. The wise man listens to advice from oth­ers (12:15), accepts instruction (19:20), and proactively seeks out wise counsel before embarking on a […]

    The ABC’s of Wisdom: Building Character with Solomon – Courtesy

    COURTESY   The Milk of Human Kindness   If a man loudly blesses his neighbor early in the morning, it will be taken as a curse. Proverbs 27:14   There is a bit of mystery surrounding this particular proverb. Is the man in view simply a gregarious friend who is just a little too happy […]

    The ABC’s of Wisdom: Building Character with Solomon – Honor

    HONOR   Winning the Respect of Others   A man’s pride brings him low, but a man of lowly spirit gains honor. Proverbs 29:23   Here we have a double prediction.

    St. Ephaem’s Prayer

    ST. EPHAEM’S PRAYER by Ray Pritchard Most of us, I suppose, have never heard of St. Ephraem of Syria. Or perhaps I shouldn’t suppose that.

    For Sinners Only

    FOR SINNERS ONLY by Ray Pritchard Last Wednesday night I listened as Von Matthews taught an excellent class on the virtue of humility.

    Dallas Willard on Humility

    Last week David Steinhart, pastor of Forest Park Baptist Church, shared some insights on humility from a tape on leadership by Dallas Willard.

    Why God Allows Good Men to Fall

    Luke 22:31-34

    Today I want to talk to you about why God allows good men to fall. My attention was drawn to this subject a few weeks ago when I got an e-mail message from my college roommate – a man I haven’t seen since 1974. He wrote to ask if I had heard the news. What […]
