WISE OR OTHERWISE

Series:Joshua
Duration:41 mins 1 sec

WISE OR OTHER WISE
JOSHUA 9

4 WORDS THAT GIVE LIFE PERSPECTIVE:

KNOWLEDGE,

UNDERSTANDING - THE ASSESMENT AND GRASP OF INFORMATION.

WISDOM – AN APPROPRIATE AND PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF INFORMATION.

DISCERNMENT – ABILITY TO SEE TRUTH AND ERROR

WHAT LESSONS ARE WE TO LEARN?


FIRST, DON’T BE TRICKED BY THE ENEMY,

  ISRAEL WALKED BY SIGHT, Vv.1-6
(SEEING IS BELIEVING …)

      THEY APPEAL TO ISRAEL’S GOD, Vv.7-10

      THEY APPEAL TO ISRAEL’S POWER, Vv.11

      THEY APPEAL TO ISRAEL’S COMPASSION, Vv.12-13

   ISRAEL ACTED FOOLISHLY, Vv.14-15
(WHAT OR WHO IS A FOOL?)

      A FOOL DESPISES WISDOM AND INSTRUCTION, PR.1:7

      A FOOL HATES KNOWLEDGE, PR.1:22

      A FOOL LACKS DISCIPLINE, PR.1:32

      A FOOL IS NAÏVE, PR.8:5

      A FOOL HAS NO OBJECTIVITY, PR.10:8-10

      A FOOL HAS A DAMAGING TONGUE, PR. 10:18

      A FOOL LIVES FOR TROUBLE, PR.10:23

      A FOOL IS BLINDED BY FOOLISHNESS, PR.12:15

      A FOOL HAS A FOOLISH HEART, PR.12:23


SECOND, IF YOU MAKE A MISTAKE AND HAVE TO LIVE WITH THE CONSEQUENCES LIMIT THE DAMAGE,

   CONSEQUENCE, AS A RESULT OF NOT ASKING THE COUNSEL OF THE LORD; Vv.15-27

      COVENANT WITH THE GIBEONITES, Vv.15

      THE PEOPLE ARE DEVIDED, Vv.16-21

   SOLUTION; HOW DO WE DEVELOP DISCERNMENT?

      A PASSION FOR TRUTH …

      A STUDENT OF PEOPLE …

      OUR PAST POOR JUDGEMENT …

      MINIMIZE THE MISTAKE … Vv.22-27

Staying Connected at Riverstone

During this time, many people are feeling disconnected in so many ways, but we want to remind you that we are here for you! We know that God's Word tells us in Matthew 18:20 that Where two or more have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.

There are many ways to stay virtually connected through our various ministry opportunities here at Riverstone Community Church and we would LOVE to see and hear from you. If you are not currently in fellowship with one of our communities below, we encourage you to reach out to the leader of the ministry that best meets your needs.
