Watermark Community Church

A Journey Through the Psalms and Proverbs

I am a person with a deep gratitude for Watermark Church. Through The Porch, I was able to see how rich life could be by obeying God’s Word. At Launch, I met my sweet husband, Brent. Through Square One, I’ve had moms to walk alongside me as I raise our two kids, Braxton Steel and Haven Marie. By serving in Merge, I've had the opportunity to see my marriage grow as we mentor pre-married couples. Through community, I'm daily reminded of my need for my Savior and to hold fast to His promises.

Oh, one more ministry in a sec . . .

DO YOUR TWO CENTS HOLD VALUE?

Proverbs 18:13-24

13 If one gives an answer before he hears,
it is his folly and shame.
14 A man's spirit will endure sickness,
but a crushed spirit who can bear?
15 An intelligent heart acquires knowledge,
and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.
16 A man's gift makes room for him
and brings him before the great.
17 The one who states his case first seems right,
until the other comes and examines him.
18 The lot puts an end to quarrels
and decides between powerful contenders.
19 A brother offended is more unyielding than a strong city,
and quarreling is like the bars of a castle.
20 From the fruit of a man's mouth his stomach is satisfied;
he is satisfied by the yield of his lips.
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
and those who love it will eat its fruits.
22 He who finds a wife finds a good thing
and obtains favor from the Lord.
23 The poor use entreaties,
but the rich answer roughly.
24 A man of many companions may come to ruin,
but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
(ESV)

MEMORY VERSES

Proverbs 18:1

Whoever isolates himself seeks his own desire;
he breaks out against all sound judgment.
