    God has the best timing. All this information has proved to be instrumental in starting a new men’s group that includes 5 men that have never been in a all men group. God has perfect timing!!

    As a dog returns to its vomit,
    so fools repeat their folly.
    So true. Obedience is responding with, not my words, but His. Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.

    So many words about fools, and sluggards lord help me to be wise, give me the strength and wisdom to do what’s necessary and important. I pray your spirit keeps me from getting entangled with fools.

  4. John says:

    4 Do not answer a fool according to his folly, or you yourself will be just like him.
    12 Do you see a person wise in their own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for them
    20 Without wood a fire goes out;
        without a gossip a quarrel dies down.
    Everyday we will be tempted by man, but no matter the battle if we fix our eyes on Jesus, there will be no wood to fuel that fire! Have a great day PV Brothers!

  5. Bryan H says:

    Proverbs 20; without wood a fire goes out and without gossip a quarrel dies down. God help me to be obedient today when I hear, or do, not to listen to gossip around me today but walk away. God I pray for your strength in these daily matters.

    I will use my influence as an employer today and show my obedience through listening, understanding, and caring.

    Verse 4 strikes me. In our divisive culture with social media just a click away it’s way too easy to a enter a fool’s discussion. Better to be obedient to Lord and his word!

  8. Dan says:

    Choose carefully your words and actions when engaging in conversations with others. Be sure to speak honestly but only when your words can have a positive impact on those listening. Don’t fuel anger or support jealousy, but speak words of encouragement and forgiveness .

  9. Brian Menk says:

    Consistent obedience is perhaps my biggest struggle. I let the busyness of my own life take over and lead my thoughts and actions. I pray that I am able to feel God’s presence always, and use it to guide me.

  10. Troy says:

    Staying focused today on turning up the Obedience from the wisdom of God and being that continuing influence to help others.
    Proverbs 26:4
    Do not answer a fool according to his folly,
    or you yourself will be just like him.

  11. Steve Roarke says:

    Remember it’s not what goes in the mouth that defiles us, it’s what comes out. What we say comes from our heart and our tongue can be a hurtful weapon.
    Be wise when speaking to other and speak what would be pleasing to God.

    I feel convicted by the fact I desire to post things on social media that stir others to anger. God, help me direct my energies in more productive activities.

    SAODI (Small Acts of Daily Impact or Influence). In another teaching I learned this as setting my intention. Before my feet hit the floor I was to set my intention for the day (i.e. hopeful, joyful, curious, etc). I am not setting my mood I am setting how I will be in the world no matter how the world shows up. I am setting how I choose to live the day rather than letting the day live me. Now, if I can only remember to set my intention daily 😉

  15. Wayne D says:

    I’ve done many of the foolish things listed. I’m setting my eyes on Jesus to lead and keep me on the right path so that I may serve him in his ministry to my friends and family.

  16. Stephen says:

    I will continue to be obedient in the manner of which I have been called to these past months…assisting in the care of my friend’s Mom, who has dementia. It is difficult at times to say the least…I spend 2-3 hours throughout the day with her… giving meds, feeding her, helping in anyway I can….but what she loves most is reminiscing about the memories of long ago…what she does remember. Just to sit and talk…and listen. And of course… making her laugh! It is a humbling experience to see the cognitive decline in a person. I am learning to be a bit more selfless. Thank you Lord. And also to Jay…thank you.

    Whoever digs a pit will fall into it; if someone rolls a stone, it will roll back on them. Proverbs 26:27

    I know I sometimes dwell on things that don’t appear right to me and then I share my frustration with others. As I’m digging that pit I’m certainly not following the Lord or influencing anyone around me! Lord, help me put the shovel down!

    I had the opportunity to do “ministry” with my sister last night. Looking forward to getting home and my church family.

  21. Dave says:

    Words and actions reveal who we really are, whether we realize it or not. Our goal needs to be focusing on our relationship with God and aligning to His example and allowing Him to pour into our life. Those things that are not Christ-like will be revealed and with Christ we can put them to death and live in the newness of life He provides.

  22. Gavin says:

    Ministry is an activity! Obedient daily and sharing influence. Continue to believe and share that we as men have an important role in Ministry. We can do! Step up, step out and start influencing those convictions.

    Vs 26 For lack of wood the fire goes out, and where there is no whisperer, quarreling ceases
    So good for our families and friendship, don’t provide any more fire wood

    Tonight is my last night of our current small group, I am praying that it is fruitful and the group continues on stronger than ever

    In The MSG translation 10: Hire a fool or a drunk and you shoot yourself in the foot. This verse stands out to me today.

  25. Ryan Gatzlaff says:

    I am challenged often by how to view my own efforts when it comes to obedience. My own effort is so insufficient, yet my effort is absolutely necessary in following Christ. Just “trying harder” ultimately ends in failure, but I need to try harder. I long to know better what it means to live in obedience without falling back into viewing my relationship with Christ as based on performance.

    20 Without wood a fire goes out;
    without a gossip a quarrel dies down.
    I have been guilty of gossip many times in my life. I may have felt justified but it is still sin.

    Lord I pray that I can exert influence in a positive way on a daily basis, and that I have a powerful impact on others lives.

    Verses to remember:
    11 As a dog returns to its vomit, so fools repeat their folly.
    12 Do you see a person wise in their own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for them.
    18 Like a maniac shooting flaming arrows of death
    19 is one who deceives their neighbor and says, “I was only joking!”
    20 Without wood a fire goes out; without a gossip a quarrel dies down.
    22 The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to the inmost parts.

  29. Eric M. says:

    I think 4 was my favorite today – Do not answer a fool according to his folly,
    or you yourself will be just like him. – Lord, help me from becoming a fool by falling for the folly of others. Instead help me to keep silent and be the wiser.

  30. Brian says:

    21 As charcoal to embers and as wood to fire,
    so is a quarrelsome person for kindling strife.

    I’m thankful for the many passages that we’ve been reading that remind me to seek to avoid quarrels.

    Today my influence is on my sick son at home, praying with him and giving him comfort.

  31. Chris says:

    Lord I seek to be obedient today in how I influence others. I have a day of influencing lined up with students choosing schedules. Give the words to say so that I can influence them ad you want.

  32. AZ says:

    Love and wisdom is my takeaway. I can relate to my old way (v23) of being what I thought was nice, but without love there is no sincerity. V4/5, be wise in your responses, have enough humbleness to let people be right sometimes…your counsel may not be the right timing or for them.

  33. Scotty says:

    Obedience, not stirring up fights and being humble. I pray for wisdom daily. God gives it to us in these proverbs. I pray today that I will remember this throughout my day.

    Thank you my brothers.
    I praise our God for the examples I have. Thank you Steve not only for being a blessing to your friend’s mom, but an example to us.
    Blessings to all

    Proverbs 26:11 says, “As a dog returns to its vomit, so fools repeat their folly.” Someone told me this means that whatever made the dog sick, will make it sick again, and similarly, fools suffer from repeating the same mistakes.

    i’m cautioned to watch my mouth for it’s easy to say the right things but no to do them. Lord help me to close the gap between what i know and what i do.

  38. Eddie says:

    verses 11 and 28 stood out to me, and yes, I know I am two days behind, but I am catching up for the last time in this 35 day challenge. 🙂
    11: “as a dog returns to its vomit, so fool repeat their folly.” this speaks to me about ANYONE that struggles with repetitive sin, myself included. we fools repeat our folly because we are relying on our own strength to keep ourselves from sinning, and I have SEEN my own dog return to her own vomit to eat it, so I FULLY understand this verse.
    28: “a lying tongue HATES those it hurts, and a flattering mouth works ruin.” this is the main reason I take offense when my kids lie to me, and why I try not to lie to anyone about anything, I don’t want to leverage hate in my speech or actions, I want to leverage love, as Jesus instructs us to. “love one another as I have loved you” (Jesus Christ).

  39. J.T. Fetherolf says:

    Verses 18-19
    As someone who likes to joke around and use sarcasm, I need to be much more careful of my actions and words towards others. Being situationally aware and understanding that others may watching me that don’t understand the context or have the same relationship with me as the person I may be joking with. As such, they may question why I am saying or doing something that seems inappropriate.

    Hello Brothers, I pray not only for myself but for all of you , That we can all be the best reflection of Christ in our daily walk, and that those around us can see this each day. Not an easy task in a world where people don’t want to believe in anything Spiritual. Be strong and of good faith.

    Something we’ve started praying for “ BOB
    Burden of the lost souls
    Opportunity take control of opportunity to pray for the lost
    Boldness for sharing Gods word
    God commands us to “Go “ and spread the word
    May we all be obedient in sharing His love
