This Sabbath at Richardson (August 23)- Great Advice from Proverbs, Part 3

The tower of Pisa has been leaning so long — nearly 840 years — that it’s natural to assume it will defy gravity forever. But the famous structure has been in danger of collapsing almost since its first brick was laid.

Why? Because the builders built on unstable soil of mud, sand and clay, and made the foundation only ten feet deep! As later builders added stories to the top they tried to compensate by making one side of the story taller than the other, rather than dealing with the foundation!

Finally from 1990 to 2001 a major engineering project was able to correct the situation, making the Tower of Pisa more stable than it has ever been!

For us to grow as believers we need to deal with any challenges to our spiritual foundation. Proverbs 23 highlights three major challenges that can cause us to collapse spiritually if they are not addressed and corrected.

Join us this Sabbath at Richardson (9am & 11:30am) as we find solutions to these challenges in a study of Proverbs 23 in our series “Great Advice from Proverbs.” Feel free to bring a friend.

Here are more tools to help us distinguish between a good & Godly decision and one that looks good but will lead to pain.
