Show Notes

Our world tends to prize brawn over brains, thinking that the stronger you are, the better you are. But muscle can only get you so far. Wisdom and understanding in a situation can get you much farther than brute strength alone. A sharp mind with understanding will outdo strength any day because it is not just working hard physically that yields success, but working smart as well.

Ep 63 - Go Astray in Her Love (Prov. 5:15-19)

Yahweh intended man and woman to be united in marriage and to enjoy sexual intimacy within that union. Our world condones people seeking to satisfy their sexual cravings in various ways that do not honor Yahweh’s design for the flourishing of humankind. Husbands and wives are to see their spouse as the sole avenue for sexual pleasure to protect and honor their marriage covenant. Faithful husbands and wives will be blessed as they enjoy many years of satisfying each other and being captivated by their love. Illustration: Bill Yaconis, a dear friend and wonderful example of a faithful husband for over five decades. Verses: Prov. 5:15-19; Song 4:1-5; 5:1 Teacher: Jerry Wierwille ...

Ep 40 – Lady Folly is a Fraud – Pt 2 (Prov. 9:17)

The voice of Lady Folly tempts people to see sweet and pleasant things in what is mischievous and rebellious. Her allure is in the excitement and thrill of getting away with what we want. But she doesn’t tell you that her rewards are superficial and temporary, and they often come with drastic consequences. She calls out to people, inviting them to join her in secret pleasures, but little do they know that, in the end, it will always leave a bitter taste in their mouths.

Ep 10 – A Gift Makes Room (Prov. 18:16)

It can be challenging to connect and break through a person’s defenses. But when used properly with an honorable motive, a thoughtful gift that is given at the right time and in the right way can open doors, remove obstacles, and place you in a more favorable light in the eyes of others. A purposeful gift shows that you care and want to someone to know that they matter, and that can make all the difference in the world.  Illustration: The incredible success of Cutco salesman John Ruhlin  Verses: Prov. 18:16   Teacher: Jerry Wierwille  If you were blessed by this episode, please consider supporting this podcast by donating at https://spiritandtruthonline.org/donate ...
