Better Choice – Open Rebuke
30 August 2020 PM – Proverbs 27:5 – BC20 – Scott Childs
Introduction: Mephibosheth, the son of Jonathan, who broke both legs in a fall, had no doctor to set his broken bones and thus he was a cripple for the rest of his life. When a person breaks a leg, the most loving thing that the doctor can do is to straighten and realign the broken bone. Though this procedure can be very painful, it is necessary if the leg is to be useful in the future.
Transition: We will see this principle unfolded in our “Better Choice” verse this evening as we examine the terms, the choices, and God’s advice.
