Watermark Community Church

A Journey Through the Psalms and Proverbs

Jake Horvath

Jake Horvath

I’m Jake Horvath, and I can be found most Saturday mornings pedaling around White Rock Lake in Dallas, Texas. I can be found on Tuesday nights volunteering with The Porch, Watermark's ministry for young adults and singles. Formerly, I was found on Wednesday nights studying and discussing the Bible in the company of high school boys; volunteering with Shoreline, Watermark's monthly Wednesday night ministry to high schoolers. However, I’m an empty-nester of sorts with the boys (now men) off to college. This experience taught me many important lessons, one of which is that pulling pranks can be a true art form if done right!

HONEST AND FAIR IS MUCH MORE THAN BEING WEALTHY AND FULL OF FLAIR!

Proverbs 28:1-8

28:1 The wicked flee when no one pursues,
but the righteous are bold as a lion.
When a land transgresses, it has many rulers,
but with a man of understanding and knowledge,
its stability will long continue.
A poor man who oppresses the poor
is a beating rain that leaves no food.
Those who forsake the law praise the wicked,
but those who keep the law strive against them.
Evil men do not understand justice,
but those who seek the Lord understand it completely.
Better is a poor man who walks in his integrity
than a rich man who is crooked in his ways.
The one who keeps the law is a son with understanding,
but a companion of gluttons shames his father.
Whoever multiplies his wealth by interest and profit [1]
gathers it for him who is generous to the poor. (ESV)

Footnotes

[1] 28:8 That is, profit that comes from charging interest to the poor

MEMORY VERSES

Iron sharpens iron,
and one man sharpens another.
