Proverbs 24:1-2 –>We should be much more concerned with the character of people than the outward appearance. Even though it is likely that evil men have things that we want, the trouble and violence necessary to acquire them are not what we should give our energy to.
Proverbs 24:10 –>If you don't have it went it counts, you don't have it. Are you prepared? Are you strengthening yourself for the day of distress?
Proverbs 24:30-34 –>Why are we struggling as churches? Why does the work go underfunded and undone? The simple answer is that we do just as the sluggard here. We sleep, we slumber, we fold our hands to rest rather than take on the work God has given us!
