Rev Steve DeNeff. Proverbs 3:1-2;12:11-12. Another of the subtle currents that carry us is
the current of ambition, and Proverbs has much to say about it. Opportunity comes to everyone, it says,
though not in the same degree and the
wise are those who seize that opportunity.
Fools wait for the perfect opportunity and, ignoring all others,
complain that no opportunity has come. But how does one seize
opportunity without becoming over-ambitious? How do we live a balanced
life? What principles guide us in the
pursuit of our work? This sermon will
explore the patterns of the industrious and the idle, and show us how to
leverage opportunities on this day.
