Your Plans: God’s Plans

Today’s message is part of a series on the subject of wisdom in the book of Proverbs. We’ve said that wisdom is basically the ability to make right choices. You make or break your life on the basis of your choices and we need wisdom to make the right ones. For example, is this the right career for you? Is this the right person to marry? Is this the right place to live? In every one of those situations, the options in front of you are many. Most of them are moral and most of them are legal. Most of them are allowable, but most of them aren’t wise. 

We need guidance to make decisions. How do you get God’s guidance? We’re going to look at a few different proverbs to see 1) the guidance God does; 2), the guidance God gives; and 3) the guidance God purchases for us.

This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on December 12, 2004. Series: Proverbs: True Wisdom for Living. Scripture: Proverbs 11:3; 12:5, 15; 15:22; 16:1-4, 9, 25, 33; 21:5; 27:1.
