Discussing and Applying the Sermon

Try reading the “Proverb of the Day” for the rest of this sermon series. Read the chapter in Proverbs that corresponds with what day of the month it is (e.g. on the 9th day of the month, read Proverbs 9). Every day, pick one Proverb that stands out to you and share it with someone else.


What do you think of when you hear someone say, “This is the life”? Wealth? Fame? The American Dream? Todd Wagner walks us through where true life is found as we kick off a new series called, “This is the Life”.
