Sermon of the Day: Why Did God Create the World? 

 

 

Proverbs 20:24

A man’s steps are of the Lord;
How then can a man understand his own way?

Men, are there areas in your life that you would like to improve in? Maybe your devotion time? Your marriage? Parenting? Work? I’m sure for many, if not all of us the answer is yes. Right?

Awesome, glad we are in agreement with that.

Now, in all those areas you want to improve in, how much time are you investing to grow? What are you reading, watching or listening to in order to grow in those areas?

Would it be safe for me to say that most of us are not investing into ourselves in many of those areas.

Why not?!

No one has shown us that’s why. We have watched the men before us and around us just work it through blind.

Some of them turned out alright, but we are smarter and more skilled than them. So I’m sure we can do better. Right?

Wrong.

Men, we have been created from dust, and to dust we will return. (Genesis 3:19)

Men that sinful disease in all of us called pride needs to be a target in your life. We need to target pride with all our might and put it to death daily.

Men, humble yourselves in those areas you want to grow in. Seek counsel. Seek wisdom and above all things, seek the Lord.

Your every step, whether you want to admit it or not is of the Lord. So why not seek Him whole-heartedly and align your thoughts with His Word.

Then and only then; understanding your way may not be crystal clear, but the peace and clarity will be undeniable.

We need to stop doing life blind. We need to stop thinking we are doing okay. We need to have the humility to say I need to do so much better and we need to have the grit to do something about it. We need to love our wives and children more than ourselves. Live a life of seeking personal growth and development through God’s Word, and gifted teachers. We need to stop making excuses and make it happen.

Please know that I love you, but please hear the urgency in my heart and tone. Men if we don’t work on changing we will be old men of regret and shame.
