pro·verb – /ˈprävˌərb/ noun: A wise saying of ancient origin
At the close of the most recent Intensive retreat that many of us shared together, younger men had the rare and remarkable opportunity to hear proverbs from older men that have traveled much of the road before us. (Jeremiah 6:16)
I want to reflect those proverbs back to this growing fellowship of young world-changers so that we might stay on the narrow path and walk through, again and again, the narrow gate. (Matthew 7:13-14)
My hope is to share them through blogs over time, giving each of them space to find their way into our hearts and our world.
I would encourage you to try each one on. Write it down. Put it in front of you every day for a week and ask the Father to interpret it and let it find it’s way into you…
Live Aloha, Accept the invitation to play, live lightly. Eat more fruit, hold hands with your wife more often, watch a sunset.
‘Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you will recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me – watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill fitting on you. Keep company with me and you will learn to live freely and lightly.’ (Mt 11:28 MSG)
