Protected from Greed (The Protection of Proverbs #3)

Greed is ingrained in our culture everywhere you look. Even businesses recognize this and market products directly at our greed. “Bigger”, “Better”, “More” are all words that are used to sew discontent with what we have and are designed to trigger our greed.

Solomon, in Proverbs 1 gives his son instruction against greed. He continues to explain how following greed and spending time with greedy people will lead to a path of destruction. Listen as Pastor Erin shows how this 3000-year-old example is just as relevant to our world today.

Protected by Wisdom (The Protection of Proverbs #2)

Proverbs, chapter 1 verses 20-33 still speaks to our culture to this very day. Humanity, as a whole, has turned its back on the wisdom of God and put faith in its own abilities and knowledge. This means that we are destined to learn lessons that God has warned us against over and over again.

In today’s sermon, Pastor Erin Bird explains how ignorance is not necessarily bad. When we choose to trust God’s wisdom, it is a form of choosing a Godly ignorance.

Why Proverbs (The Protection of Proverbs #1)

Chapter 2 of Proverbs begins with Solomon addressing his son and imparting words of wisdom that his son should heed. This instruction is much like the “Sand Palace” on Mexico Beach, Florida that was built to withstand even the most devastating hurricanes. Just like this structure has stood when all the other buildings around it have been destroyed, Solomon is hoping to help his son stand up when everyone around him is failing to honor God.

The kids join the congregation this Sunday as Pastor Erin encourages parents to use Solomon’s Godly counsel in raising their children.
