Gilbert House Fellowship #414: Proverbs 14

LEANING ON OUR OWN understanding is a recipe for disaster.

We continue with the theme of the importance of wisdom and willingness to receive correction, summarized in this verse:

There is a way that seems right to a man,
  but its end is the way to death.

Proverbs 14:12 (ESV)

We also discuss grief and its place in the human experience. Until Christ returns, pain will be a part of our journey. It’s a consequence of our fallen world, but it also helps us grow and truly appreciate joy.
