Proverbs 21:21

Connect: What was your favorite memory of starting school? What made it special?  How have you struggled in finding the balanced life?  

Engage: Zach talked about Proverbs 21:21 “Whoever pursues (stumble upon)  righteousness and love finds life, prosperity and honor.

  1. Life – flourish, run community and appetite – How does this definition sit with you? Zach talked about that it is not something you seek but you find? How do you feel about that statement? Have you seen that in your life?
  2. Prosperity – How does the word prosperity as the biblical definition differ from the world’s definition?  Have you been able to see prosperity as the bible defines in your own life and what does that look like for you?
  3. Honor- reputation, dignity, weight, — How does this look in your life as you walk with Jesus?

      2 Chronicles 5:14 –
Weight- where do you put your weight?  Is there anything that you need to change?
Matt. 6:33
Where have you had struggles seeking first the kingdom?  
Mark Buchannan “Forget balance, go for the magnificent obsession, live your life glorious lopsided” What do you think of this statement? Is this hard for you or not? What makes you say either?
Zach talked about Paul, King David – Can you think of others in the bible that had a lopsided life and what made it lopsided?

3  Things that are Important 

  1. Our lives need surrender.
  1. What do you need to surrender to Jesus?
