Review this week's message.

Key Thought:

The fool knows his choices are unwise and does them anyway.

Start talking. Find a conversation starter for your group.
  • What did you do for Halloween weekend?
  • What is one piece of advice you would give to your younger self?

Start thinking. Ask a thoughtful question.
  • We are often foolish in our youth simply because we lack experience. Who has God put in your life that you need to learn from? Are you taking advantage of their wisdom?
  • “length of mistake doesn't justify the mistake” Are you making any foolish choices in your life that you have justified? How can you overcome those residual sinful choices?

Start sharing. Choose questions that create openness.
  • There's a difference between right living and wise living. Which are you choosing? How can you move from "right" to “wise” in an area of your life that needs to change?
  • Sin costs your life because it costs your time, energy, and emotional wellbeing. What decision do you need to start making this week to take back your life?

Start praying. Be bold, and pray with power.

Jesus, thank you for forgiving my foolish decisions. Help me to step into wise living today. I love you!

Start doing. Commit to a step and live it out this week.
  • This week, write down an area of your life that you want wisdom in and ask God to show you a person that can speak into that area. Invite them to coffee and ask for their advice!
  • Find someone (maybe even someone in your Lifegroup) to be an accountability partner for you. Give them the permission and authority to speak into your life.


For at the window of my houseI have looked out through my lattice, and I have seen among the simple, I have perceived among the youths ,a young man lacking sense, passing along the street near her corner, taking the road to her house in the twilight, in the evening, at the time of night and darkness...With much seductive speech she persuades him; with her smooth talk she compels him.  All at once he follows her, as an ox goes to the slaughter...he does not know that it will cost him his life. Proverbs 7:6-7,21-23

A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions.  The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences. Proverbs 22:3

Like a dog that returns to his vomit is a fool who repeats his folly.  Proverbs 26:11

Anyone who rebukes a mocker will get an insult in return.  Anyone who corrects the wicked will get hurt.  So don’t bother correcting mockers; they will only hate you.  Proverbs 9:7-8

Sometimes it takes a painful experience to make us change our ways. Proverbs 20:30

I have thought about my life, and I’ve directed my feet back to your written instructions. Psalm 119:59 

If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully keep all his commands that I am giving you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the world.  You will experience all these blessings if you obey the Lord your God... Deuteronomy 28:1-2

Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.  Psalm 119:105 

Be careful then how you live, not as unwise people but as wise, making the most of the time, because the days are evil.  So do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. Ephesians 5:15-17

By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.  A wise man is full of strength, and a man of knowledge enhances his might, for an abundance of counselors there is victory.  .. Proverbs 24:3-7

Plans go wrong for lack of advice; many advisers bring success.  Proverbs 15:22

Without guidance, people fall.  But with many counselors, there is deliverance. Proverbs 11:14

But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.  We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.  Isaiah 53:5-6 

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in..  Revelation 3:20
