For the Win

Winning is awesome! How can we set ourselves up to win at life?

Winning is fun, isn’t it? No one ever starts a basketball game hoping to lose. We don’t go to band practice because we want to take last place in our competition. We don’t start a video game wanting our character to be eliminated first. No way. We play to win. In fact, sports and video games probably aren’t the only place you want to be a winner. Basically we all want to win at life. And while there’s no way to guarantee you will win in every area, there are some things you can do to help you get there. In fact, there’s an entire book in the Bible, the book of Proverbs, dedicated to giving solid advice to help you do just that.

Message-  Whitewater Rafting

Date- September 20th, 2015

Key Verse(s)-  Proverbs 15:1

Speaker-  Tommy Clark

 

One area where everyone wants to win is friendships. Friendships are a lot like rafting down a river. Things are really good until you hit the rapid. Drama and conflict can make the current rough quickly. Everyone has a different go-to response when it comes to drama. We know our responses only create more drama, but what else can you do?

Message- “I’m Gunna”

Date- September 27th, 2015

Key Verse(s)- Proverbs 14:23, Colossians 3:17 

Speaker- Matt Ragone

 

What makes it so easy to say, “I’m gonna” and so hard to keep it from becoming an “I shoulda”? We put off what we know we ought to be doing. We attempt to ignore it, and then we give up completely. We start saying things like, “I’m just a procrastinator. I always have been. It’s just how I am.” How do we start to do the things we know we should actually be doing?

Message-  Give Me More

Date- October 4th, 2015

Key Verse(s)- Proverbs 11:25

Speaker-  Tommy Clark

 

“More” is an appetite. It grows. Every time we want more, and every time we get more, it leads to us wanting even more. Wanting tends to have two major side effects: dissatisfaction and ungratefulness. And they have the power to make us miserable.

Message-  It’s a Small World

Date- October 11th, 2015

Key Verse(s)- Proverbs 19:11

Speaker-  Tommy Clark

 

Patience is hard when you’re waiting on something, but it’s even more difficult when you have to be patient with a difficult person. Patience with your family doesn’t come naturally. Impatience does. What would things look like at your house if you could to be patient with your family? Less fighting? Less arguing? More peace? Even if it seems impossible, the idea of less fighting in your family sounds intriguing.
