It Starts with a Conversation

 

DESTINATIONS
Which Paths Will You Choose?

Destinations

First, Seek Him...

With this conversation, we begin a new series in which we focus not just on what’s right in front of us, but where we’re going in life. God wants us to carefully consider the direction we’re headed. Where are your paths leading you today? Pause and “Seek Him” about this!

...Then Speak Him

Solomon continually talked to his son about his life, showing how various ways and paths would lead to different destinations. That’s what this discipleship series is all about. This week’s conversation is the starting line for all the conversations to come! “Speak Him” today!

Listen to the Podcast

Proverbs 4:26
“Ponder the path of your feet; then all your ways will be sure.”

Word

God, what are you saying to me through this Scripture?

Every step takes you somewhere, and God wants us to think about where our steps in life are leading us. To “ponder” our path means to carefully examine where it will take us. This is true for simple things, like where to go on vacation. It’s even more important for big things, like where our life choices will take us. God wants us to ponder our paths so we can choose the best destinations: the ones He has for us. ~ Where have some of your steps led this week? Did you like where you went? Do you want to go there again?

Why

God, why does this matter?

A muddy, slippery slope is seldom fun; a dead end is rarely exciting, either. We can’t control everything about our lives, but we can choose to journey down “paths” and “ways” that lead to good destinations. In the Bible, “sure” paths are where God leads us and has blessings for us. “The path of the righteous,” Proverbs 4:18-19 tells us, “is like the first light of dawn, which shines brighter and brighter until full day. The way of the wicked is like deep darkness; they do not know over what they stumble.” The destination of one path leads to a bright place while the other leads to darkness! ~ Which type of paths do you prefer to walk when you go hiking? What is a “sure” path in the Bible? Where does this path lead you?

What

God, What Else Does Your Word Say About This?

Proverbs chapters 1-9 talks about “paths” and “ways” many times. Solomon continually showed his son where each “path” or “way” would lead he could make good choices about his destinations. We can do this too:  like Solomon, adults can speak into the next generation and, hopefully like his son did, kids can listen! ~ Read Proverbs 3:10-19 and talk about where Solomon was trying to lead his son. How willing are  you to follow the directions God gives us in His Word? What destinations do you want in life?

Worship

God, How do you want me to respond to this truth?

We can worship God by doing exactly what this week’s verse tells us to do:  think about the destinations where we’re headed! In the weeks to come, we’re going to “ponder” some very specific “paths” and “ways” like living for yourself or your Savior; evil or good; lies or truth; scars or purity; wrong or right; and more. For now, let’s pray and ask God’s help to understand the destinations He calls us to in life!

Proverbs 4:26
“Ponder the path of your feet; then all your ways will be sure.”

A Family Blessing

A Blessing from this Lesson to Speak over Those God has Entrusted to You!

As we ponder our destinations this season, may you walk in the way of the good and keep to the paths of the righteous (Proverbs 2:20). In Jesus’ Name, amen!
