REPLAY: THE POWER OF THE CROWD ~ Psalm 1:1

THE SIMPLE TRUTH ABOUT SPIRITUAL GROWTH

If I'm velcroed to the Bible and other Christians,
I'll have what I need when I need it.

THE POWER OF THE CROWD
Matthew 9:10-14/ Proverbs 13:20

Associate with everyone. But hang with those who make you better.
We inevitably become like those we hang with.
The Key Question: Where do I turn for advice and approval?

THE POWER OF THE COMPASS ~ Psalm 1:2

A good heart with a bad compass will take you to the wrong place - every time!
1 Corinthians 4:4 and Romans 1:18-32/ Proverbs 12:15/ Proverbs 14:12

What does it mean to delight in the law of the Lord?
Proverbs 2:3-11 and 8:33-36/ Romans 12:2

What does it mean to meditate day and night?
Joshua 1:8/ 2 Timothy 3:16-17/ 1 Corinthians 10:11/ Psalm 119:105

THE GOOD LIFE ~ Psalm 1:3-6

Blessed at the right time.
1 Peter 5:6-7/ Acts 7:20-30/ Deuteronomy 7:22

Able to survive the drought.
Proverbs 10:24-25/ 1 Peter 1:6-7

A pattern of prosperity.

MY STORY

Stories for children
A textbook - important, but dry
Good stuff, but complicated and beyond me
A resource book
A book just for grown-ups
A holy book- mystical, but worthy of honor
Irrelevant to me and/or my family
Other _____________________________

2. What do you do when reading the Bible becomes boring or doesn't seem to be providing any benefit?
