Making Life Work – or at least, trying to!!!

We’re now 2 weeks in to the new season of teaching at KingsGate, using Bill Hybels’ rather excellent “Making Life Work” book to take us through Proverbs and then looking at how this can affect different areas of out everyday lives.

The first session was looking at Wisdom – and boy did I feel foolish by the end of *that* one! (and supremely challenged it has to be said), and last Sundays session was about taking the initiative and “getting a grip)

As part of the series everyone in housegroups were given a copy of the book to work through and to study as a follow-up on the Sunday teaching and to use when we meet as groups. We have also been challenged to learn one proverb each week in line with the sermons.

It’s YEARS since I’ve done any form of memory verse and getting back into the habit has proven to be somewhat fun! Yeah, I know that I need to do more of it… but I’ve gotten out of the habit and now I really need to work to get back *into* the habit.

As an aide-mémoire I have started to create some desktop background images containing relevant images along with the proverb of the week… and being the sort of person I am, I thought I’d upload them here. (And by “the sort of person” I mean the sort who forgets so often it’s useful to keep such things on the Internet where I know I can find them wherever I am!)

So here they are in all their glory – to get hold of the images for parts 2 to 5 simply click on the desired image and then save it for your consumption. Hope they help others of you out there as they are helping me!

Get a Grip: “Go watch the ants, you lazy person. Watch what they do and be wise” (Proverbs 6:6 NCV)

No Pain, No Gain: “The road to life is a disciplined life” (Proverbs 10:17a – The Message)

Wedded Bliss?: “Be happy with your wife… let her surround you with herlove” (Proverbs 5:18-19 TEV)

Happy Families?: “Train children to live the right way, and when they are old, they will not stray from it.” (Proverbs 22:6 NCV)

Images for the next 5 weeks (and maybe an image for week 1) will follow in a few days time.

All the above images are copyright free as far as I can tell, if you know otherwise please do let me know as soon as possible and I’ll remove the images!

  1. Eeeeek – I’m really sorry folks. Sadly need to put this one down to bad time-management (priorities) and discipline…

    Methinks I need to revisit some sermons 😉

    I’ll try and get the new ones sorted tomorrow!
