Book Review: A Bountiful Eye

A Bountiful Eye (cover)I recently had the chance to sit down and read A Bountiful Eye: Insights from Proverbs on Wealth and Riches by John Allan. As the subtitle indicates, the book examines what the wise man had to say in the book of Proverbs pertaining to wealth. This may be a topic that some Christians are uncomfortable talking about, yet it is one that the Scriptures address for us.Continue Reading

Commit Your Works to the Lord (Season 11, Episode 12)

In this season, we’re discussing some lessons from the book of Proverbs.

In Proverbs 16:1-7, the wise man talked about the need for us to “commit [our] works to the Lord.” We have the ability to make plans as to what we will do, but we need to be sure we are obeying the Lord rather than following after sin. If we follow after wickedness, we will be punished. If we fear the Lord and obey Him, we will be established.

Proverbs About Government (Season 11, Episode 11)

In this season, we’re discussing some lessons from the book of Proverbs.

It may be surprising to learn of the number of passages in the book of Proverbs that deal with the topic of government. In this episode, we discuss several of these passages that teach us about the role and place of government, instructions to those in positions of civil authority, and what our responsibility is toward those who rule over us.

If Sinners Entice You, Do Not Consent (Season 11, Episode 10)

In this season, we’re discussing some lessons from the book of Proverbs.

In this episode, we discuss two passages – Proverbs 1:10-19 and 4:14-19 – that warn about the dangers of peer pressure. This is not a problem limited to the youth, but all Christians of every age need to guard against the evil influence of others.

An Excellent Wife (Season 11, Episode 9)

In this season, we’re discussing some lessons from the book of Proverbs.

Proverbs 31:10-31 describes the “excellent wife.” Rather than thinking of this description as an unattainable ideal that does not exist in reality, we should look at the character and priorities of this woman as the example that all godly women can and should follow.

Keep from the Adulteress (Season 11, Episode 8)

In this season, we’re discussing some lessons from the book of Proverbs.

In Proverbs 7:1-27, the wise man warned his son about the adulteress – first by pointing out the foolishness of one who puts himself in a position to be tempted, then by describing the tactics she uses in order to make this sin convenient, enticing, and seemingly without consequences. There are important lessons for all of us – men and women – in the wise man’s warnings in this chapter.
