Proverbs 30

Keep falsehood and lies far from me; give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only me daily bread (v8).

Godliness with contentment is great gain.

I am aware of some of the poverty in Reading, and it is horrible. Conversely, one of our children's friends lives a lavish lifestyle in a fabulous house.

The family Green, I am happy to report, have neither poverty or riches.

We have more than enough to live on yet not too much to negate needing God. We are able to budget and we need to stick to those budgets.

We can't really afford to be generous and we are able to be generous. We don't have any significant needs, we can pay our bills and we have little for a rainy day.

We choose to want what we have. Everyday there is food in our cupboard and bread on the table. God is faithful to us as a family and is ensuring we need to come to him daily to meet our needs.

proverbs 29

The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern (v7).

This verse provokes an unease within me. I do care about justice for the poor, it's just that, as an activist, I want to be doing something about it.

Over the years I have championed causes, bought ethically (I blow hot & cold on this), helped out on projects, prayed and given money.

Yet it still doesn't quench my unease about whether I am caring enough. Part of travelling to Zambia is to have my heart softened again for the world's poor and catch a vision for justice to prevail.

I wonder whether, as an activist, I am ever going to get closure on the plight of the poor. Jesus said they will always be with us, and Sin is always messing lives up.

Either way, I have given a righteousness from Jesus so I must care about justice for the poor.

Proverbs 28

The wicked man flees though no-one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion (v1).

A guilt ridden conscious is a terrible master.

Leviticus 26 records some of the consequences of disobedience to God's commands; one of these being 'the sound of a windblown leaf will put them to flight'.

In stark contrast to this is David's declaration as he faces Goliath in 1Sam17 "Today I will strike you down and cut off your head". Not much evidence of a desire to flee.

One can only conclude that 'guilt' robs courage whilst a 'clean heart' fuels it.

If we are lacking courage for obedience (or to stand and fight), confessing our sins to Jesus and enjoying again His righteousness would be a good starting point.

Proverbs 27

The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it (v12).

Knowing when to 'take refuge' and when to 'press on regardless' can be tricky. Which situations should we listen to our faith (and ignore any warning signs) and keep going regardless? How do we know when taking refuge actually robs us of the final breakthrough?

I tend to err to conservative refuge and so I often wonder what would have happened had I held my nerve for longer. God only knows but this proverb shores me up in those moments of self doubt.

Proverbs 26

As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool returns to his folly (v11).

This verse has come to my mind many times. Whenever I keep doing the same dumb thing, or keep slipping up on the same issue, 'canine chunder' comes to mind.

Dogs seem to like inspecting, even eating, their own vomit, it is truly disgusting. They have no concept of how gross it is.

I sometimes wonder that if I could see how repugnant to God my own sin is, would that stop me returning to it? I don't know, bit I do know I need to grow in my revulsion to my own sins.

Vomit is a good metaphor for folly ... and the cross is a grace filled reality for serial sinners like me.

Proverbs 25

Like a city whose walls are broken down is a man who lacks self control (v28).

A city whose walls were broken down was vulnerable to attack. With no functioning defensive wall, it would be much easier to overrun and plunder.

In the same way, self control is our defensive wall from the onslaught of Sin. If our 'walls' are weak or broken, our resistance will quickly fail and we'll be ravaged.

So how do we strengthen our 'city walls'?

One of the fruits of the Spirit is 'self control'. It's not that we are to produce self control, rather we are to pursue walking with the Holy Spirit. He will produce this fruit in us and we then faithfully exercise this gift.

None of us should want to be overrun and ravaged by Sin. But we can't do this on our own. We are not supposed to. We need to humble ourselves and be reliant upon the Holy Spirit as He equips us to live for the Glory of God.

Proverbs 24

An honest answer is like a kiss on the lips (v26).

In this context, a kiss on the lips was reserved for those known well and loved deeply. The proverb is saying that an honest answer is to be regarded as a precious expression of love.

We Brits don't do honesty - saying what we really think is considered impolite. So an 'honest answer' needs something of a renaissance.

We should love people enough to give them an honest answer. If they look ridiculous in an outfit, and they ask, we should tell them. More importantly, if they gossiping, envious, prideful or just being plain stupid, and they ask our opinion ... you must 'kiss them with confidence'!

The key to all this is to wait until you're asked. Remember that giving your answer before being asked can feel like a body-slam rather than a cheeky peck on the lips!

Proverbs 23

Who has woe? Who has sorrow? Who has strife? Who has complaints? Who has needless bruises? Who has bloodshot eyes? (v29)

Like many, I have an unhappy history concerning alcohol abuse. My father was a violent alcoholic and so my early childhood memories are not all good. By my late teens / early twenties I was walking my father's path "A lovely guy when sober, but ... ".

Then I met Jesus and so began my transformation. Gone are the needless bruises and bloodshot eyes. Gone are the regrets and broken relationships from the night before. Gone also are the mints before the church meeting - beer breath was highly frowned upon!

After 2 decades of following Jesus, I am now more at ease around alcohol. But I still have personal reservations. I still unconsciously count the glass bottles in my recycling to ensure my consumption is under control. I still occasionally ask Liz if she has any concerns.

I am now hidden in Christ and although all things are permissible, by His grace, I will not be mastered by anything. I will, with thanksgiving, enjoy a glass of wine, but I am NOT going to walk in my father's way.

Proverbs 22

Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it (v6).

This is one of those verses we must handle well. It should not be read as a 'promise', rather as a 'rule of thumb'.

Just as a track develops when the same route is used to cross a field, (the familiar track guides our steps), in the same way, habits learned young flow into our adult life.

And just as we can then choose to walk a different path across the field (for good or bad) so too can children choose to change their own steps, they too have free will.

Liz and I need to keep working at showing our children the right way to go. Our children are still young and we can easily exert our influence upon them. However, that influence will change and I have to trust that they will stay on the right course.

In truth, this verse gives me great hope, primarily because I know Him who inspired the words and His commitment to my children.

Coming and going

Yesterday, Sam & Hannah flew out to Romania as part of their training. They will be joining with others from across newfrontiers to support a church there and work with street kids.

This afternoon, Dave Henson (who is planting a church in St Petersburg) is coming to visit us. We plan to spend tonight and tomorrow talking, planning, praying, eating and laughing a lot.

Tonight, Sitho is flying out to Liberia with Samaritan's Purse as a 'chaplain'. The team he is joining is made up of both Christians and those who aren't yet, most of which have sporting connections. He'll be gone for a week, so let's pray God both uses and blesses him.

Next week, I fly out to Zambia with Kerith Community Church and Tearfund to visit a HIV/AIDS project and spend time with some pastors there. This morning I had three jabs in preparation for the trip, I really don't like needles.

It's great to be part of a church that has the nations on our heart and passports in our hands.

Proverbs 21

The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the LORD (v31).

It is God, not us, who determines the outcome, regardless of our preparations, gifting or abilities. As such, I have been responsible for some spectacularly well organized failures, each of which were very well prepared!!!

I am an activist. I am never happier than making a metaphorical war horse 'ready for battle'. The kingdom has a place for people like me, we are never happier than when we are doing stuff.

But my personality type has a shadow side - I prefer tasks lists to prayer lists. I can put more energy into doing stuff than into seeking God's will, which is dumb given He 'gives the victory'.

For me then, I need to keep on with my tasks lists, and press through on my prayer lists, knowing I am in partnership with the one who gives victory.

Proverbs 20

Who can say, "I have kept my heart pure; I am clean and without sin?" (v9)


This morning I sat in our garden for my devotional time. It is a beautiful spring morning, dew on the grass, new growth everywhere and not a cloud in the sky. God's creation appears flawless...

Except for me ...

I had a 'good day' yesterday, I walked with God as best I could throughout the day. And yet this morning, on reflection, I still had a lot to say sorry for. I had not kept my heart pure, not even for one day.

Thank goodness for Jesus. Through faith in Him I am made righteous (Rom 3v22). As such I can enjoy God's creation knowing that I am known yet loved, naturally rebellious yet supernaturally grafted into the true vine (John 15).

It's going to be a good day.

Proverbs 19

Stop listening to instruction, my son, and you will stray from the words of knowledge (27).

I don't think I am pushing this verse too hard to say it underscores the value of being exposed to expository preaching.

What I mean by expository preaching is preaching that is shaped by a bible text ... the sermon comes from the text and the text determines the content of the sermon.

Listening to this type of preaching keeps you as close as possible to God's words of knowledge. Terry Virgo, John Piper, Mark Driscoll, CJ Mahaney are but a few of my favourite expository preachers. When I listen to their instruction I know I am keeping close to God's word.

If you have other favourites feel free to post a few links ...

Fishboy update

Well we swam our 200 lengths in 1hr 41min.

Any sense of achievement was robbed from us when a young boy asked us how far were swimming given he had already completed a 4km swim ...

The good news though was that there weren't any toilet dilemma's, Craig didn't tapped my ankles too much and Richard's speedos were left at home.

To be honest it all felt rather routine, not that I have ever swum that far, rather it felt like a club night at TVT, only longer.

All good - now to book the first race of the season - Thames Turbo Race #3. Its a Super Sprint distance, 433m pool swim, 21km bike and 5km run on 25 May. Bring it on.

Proverbs 18

The words of a gossip are choice morsels; they go down to a man's inmost parts (v8).

Gossip is ugly but can taste delicious; gossip exposes and divides; it elevates and denigrates; it can thrill the hearer and devastate the owner.

For Christan's, gossip is a real and present danger. By definition, we value caring for, and sharing our lives with, one another. However, there is a fine line between us sharing news and us being gossips.

For those involved in the pastoral life of a church, walking this fine line is an even greater challenge. When does 'asking advice' or 'giving an account of the state of the flock' stray into gossip?

For me, I can never promise confidentiality, but neither do I tell my fellow elders every pastoral detail I am aware of. When with friends, I try to only share 'my news', or news that the 'owner' has already made public.

I can seem very complicated at times, yet a tender conscience and a desire to avoid gossip will prove worthy guides.

Proverbs 17

Even a fool is thought wise if he keeps silent, and discerning if he holds his tongue (v28).

There are times in life when it is better to say nothing than to say the wrong words. Some situations are beyond our experience or wisdom, and those moments require few, if any, well chosen words.

When people are in anguish, our presence alone is often enough. Job's friends started well, they sat on the ground with him for 7 days, and no-one said a word (Job 2v13).

It's when they started trying to explain & fix the situation that they added insult to his injury. Job eventually and rather sarcastically answered his friends "If only you would be altogether silent! For you that would be wisdom" (Job 13v5).

We all need the wisdom to know when to keep silent, not just so we look wise and discerning, but also to best help those we care for.

Thursday, 16 April 2009


On Saturday @ 3:30pm I get to swim 5km in a pool with two of my friends (and a few others) in Swimathon 2009. Outstanding questions I still have are:
  • Will Richard wear his infamous speedos?
  • Will Craig spend the entire 200 lengths tapping my heels but not overtake?
  • Will I have a toilet dilemna? The rules say you can't leave the pool, so you have to ....

Proverbs 16

The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the LORD (v33).

There really is no such thing as random or chance events, God is the unseen hand behind all things. His ongoing relationship and interaction with creation is often called ‘God’s Providence’.

Wayne Grudem states that ‘God is continually involved with all created things in such a way that #1 keeps them existing and maintaining the properties with which he created them; #2 cooperates with created things in every action, directing their distinctive properties to cause them to act as they do; and #3 directs them to fulfil his purposes’ (Systematic Theology p315).

There really is no such thing as impersonal fate or luck, our world is governed by a personal God. Nothing just happens, but God causes all things to work together for good for those who love Him.

This should help us frame our ‘bad day' by trusting in His providence, even when everything seems to be going wrong!

Proverbs 15

A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger (v1).
If I quickly apologise when I make a mistake riding my bike or driving the car, I can often see their anger melt away.

If I respond gently to the children's anger, the situation normally diffuses quickly. If I show my annoyance, it escalates.

If I have upset someone unwittingly and humbly apologise to them, then both of us will have a better day.

We all need to be humble enough to answer people gently and not use the conflict to ease our wounded pride or assert our rights.

Easy to type, hard to live out, excellent to pursue.

Proverbs 14

Each heart knows it's own bitterness, and no-one else can share its joy (v10).

Everyone has a story.

As a pastor I have met many people and without exception, all are living with some level of disappointment. Each person had hidden in their heart a level of pain or frustration or unfullfilled desire.

Even those who seem most happy, sorted and content, once they let their guard down, had a heart that ached in some way. Without a doubt, the effect of Adam's rebellion has touched every life.

In contrast, most had an area of life they were deeply grateful for. Normally it was associated with their faith in Jesus ... or another key relationship.

We humans are complex beings; we live with the tension of bitterness and joy within our hearts. Only in heaven will this tension be released - then our joy will be unbounded and our hearts open and unguarded.

Until then we must lovingly listen to each others stories, even if we don't quite understand their pain.

Proverbs 13

A wise son heeds his father's instruction, but a mocker does not listen to rebuke (v1).

When I read this I immediately thought of my relationship with Ben Davies. Over the years he has instructed, encouraged and rebuked me in many different ways. Not all of that was easy to hear or receive but it always had the hallmark of wisdom.

Seasons change and I now find myself drawing more from the instruction I have received from Ben rather than from his fresh input. I may have left home but am still continuing in the way I have been trained.

Season's change and I too am a Father. This morning after reading proverbs 31, I 'instructed' my son to meditate on this chapter before he dated a girl or ever thought about marrying one.

In his season of life, kissing a girl is 'nasty' and the thought of marriage is not yet on his radar, nevertheless, I thought it wise to lay some ground work!

Ben & Mo are with us this Sunday - I am really looking forward to hearing him preach again.

Sunday, 12 April 2009

Proverbs 12

A fool shows his annoyance at once, but a prudent man overlooks an insult (v16).

Life is not about winning every skirmish. Wisdom is not always found in pursuing what is 'right' or 'fair'.

Sometimes it is better to be wronged for the greater good - when in dispute with people I have yielded my rights and kept the peace.

Sometimes I have been badly treated, only to be asked for help by the same people - and by overlooking the insult, I gained friends.

I don't always get it right. When I am annoyed, my wife knows it immediately, which in itself is very annoying.

Sometimes it is really hard to overlook an offense ... I can't move forward and so need to talk it through face to face.

Nevertheless, it is better to bite our lips and extend grace, than show our annoyance and risk being thought a fool.

Saturday, 11 April 2009


Shortly after 7:00am this morning, in the rain, I got a puncture. 3 miles into a 27mile ride. Rubbish. My buddies Richard, James and Kirk were a great support ... in a 'make witty comments whilst watching' kind of way.

It was the first time I have tried to fix a puncture using the tools I carry with me. Sadly, the tyre irons seem to be made of chocolate and were useless. My pump, which promised inflation pressures of 90psi, refused to go much above 30psi. All fuel for their 'oh so funny' humour.

I suspect they will greatly embellish & exaggerate the ordeal. To be fair I wasn't slick (bad tools / workman / blaming) but I eventually got the job done!

And for the record, the trye has stayed up.

Proverbs 11

When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom (v2).

They say pride has 1000 faces, but the disgrace that follows always seems to feel the same: horrible!

When the Holy Spirit, my conscience or a friend points out my pride, that sinking feeling is awful. When I have been prideful in public, that makes the feeling of disgrace even worse.

The truth is, because of my pride, I still try to portray myself as a 'got it together Christian'. For the public record, I am not a 'got my walk with God together' Christian. I am the worst sinner I know (because I know myself the best).

But I am forgiven. And my primary identity is not as sinner or a forgiven sinner. My primary identity is in Christ and the Bible describes me as a saint (Eph1v1).

Disgrace will always track pride, yet a humble, biblical understanding of who we in Christ, brings great wisdom.

Proverbs 10

The memory of the righteous will be a blessing, but the name of the wicked will rot (v7).

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) was a righteous man whose memory is a blessing. Spurgeon was, amongst many things, a master wordsmith:

"There are no crown-wearers in heaven that were not cross-bearers here below."

"Morality may keep you out of jail, but it takes the blood of Jesus to keep you out of hell."

"Oh that the Lord would saturate us through and through with an undying zeal for the souls of men."

"Evil may ferment, wrath may boil, and pride may foam, but the brave heart of holy confidence trembles not".

Proverbs 9

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding (v10).

According to Luther, the natural man can not fear God perfectly. Holy fear is God given, enabling men to reverence God's authority, obey His commands and shun all forms of evil.

Holy fear is the beginning of wisdom, a feature of those whom God delights in (Ps147v11) and is the whole duty of man (Ec12v13).

Godly fear should stimulate us to seek holiness, for a day of judgment is coming (2Cor5v10). We are to fear the LORD, God's awesomeness has not changed.

Yet we must compliment this 'fear of the LORD' with Jesus' teaching on loving the Father with all our heart. We have been given the Spirit of sonship (Rom8v15) to help us in this.

Fear & love - a healthy and appropriate tension for those who love God.

Proverbs 8

The LORD brought me forth as the first of His works, before his deeds of old. I was appointed from eternity, from the beginning, before the world began ...

… I was the craftsman at His side. I was filled with delight day after day, rejoicing always in his presence, rejoicing in his whole world and delighting in mankind. (v22 &30)

Part of blogging through proverbs is to get to know Ms Wisdom better; to listen to her instruction & gain wisdom (v33), to watch daily at her doors & wait at her doorway (v34).

I find it striking that wisdom is personified as a woman created before the dawn of time. Ms Wisdom is pictured as being brought forth (ESV uses possessed or fathered or created) as the first of God’s creative works.

But Ms Wisdom is not to be confused with the pre-incarnate Jesus who was not created:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. John 1v1-2

He is the image of the invisible God, the first born over all creation. For by him all things were created ... all things were created by him and through him. He is before all things and in him all things hold together. Col 1v15-17

I do want to gain wisdom and so eagerly listen to Ms Wisdom … but she can never compare with the pre-eminence of Jesus. He towers above all things in life; he is Mr ‘Eternal, uncreated, wisdom personified’.

Walking in the air

Yesterday, the Groovy Greens went to Portsmouth for the day. Not only did we visit the house in Southsea where I was born but we also went up the Spinnaker Tower.

It stands at 170m and has three observations decks - the one at 100m has a glass floor you can walk over. Being a 'no fear father' I was first to take my shoes off and boldly step out and 'walk in the air'.

I was OK until I looked down - that was my mistake. The glass looked way too thin. Even though I knew it was fine, I wasn't a happy daddy until I was back on the ground.

The kids loved it, Zoe had no fear what-so-ever ... but it will take some time for this family memory to bring an unconditional smile to my face!

Proverbs 7

All at once he followed her (the adulteress)... little knowing it would cost him his life (v22-23).

The young man caves in to her persuasive words and smooth talk. Her seduction of him is almost complete.

Whilst on summer holidays, my son and I like to dam the streams that run across a beach. We have great fun trying to hold the water back, especially when a weak spot suddenly caves in and spills all the water. The breach happens so quickly and dramatically!

Yielding to sin can be like this; our resolve weakens then suddenly & catastrophically, it caves in. We were yielding only a few drops, but then suddenly litres are cascading through us.

Yielding to sin is not linear - we often move from resisting to assisting in a blink of an eye. Trying to endure because 'we can handle it', is very unwise. How much better to stay well away.

As the old saying goes 'Better safe than very sorry'.

Proverbs 6

Do not lust in your heart after her beauty, or let her captivate you with her eyes (v25).

Solomon devoted a lot of time to warning against adultery. Adultery festers in the heart when it fueled by boredom, familiarity, insecurity, unreality and lust.

I have occasionally met women with captivating eyes - their every look seem to invite me in to know more. They were always shocking encounters.

Why am I blogging on this? The effects of adultery are truly awful & incalculable and as far as I can tell, none of us can inoculate ourselves guaranteeing we won't go there.

What we can do is tell our closest friends our greatest weakness, so they can look out for us. We can avoid being alone for regular, extended periods of time with members of the opposite sex.

We can guards our hearts by choosing to be satisfied with our wife/husband. And we can be confident that we will finish strong by God's grace, without minimising the clear warnings from the bible.

Sunday, 5 April 2009

Proverbs 5

Keep to a path far from her (the adulteress), do not go near the door of her house (v8).
We are all tempted to think we can handle sin. In some areas of my life, I find myself trying to figure out how close to the edge I can go without actually sinning. Dumb I know, but common to us all.

There is better way.

A biblical approach is to keep to a path that leads us far away from our areas of weakness. For some it means no TV after 9pm, others it's Internet filters, others its ending a friendship. For me it has meant all of these and more.

Few of us are in situations like Joseph, he could not avoid Potiphar's wife and her lust for adultery (Gen 39v12) and he paid the price.

Mostly, we can choose to avoid the paths and doors that will lead us to sin and it's inevitable damage & pain - so let's make wise choices.

Zambia bound

At the end of this month I am travelling out to Zambia for 9 days with our friends from Kerith Community Church. Simon Benham has asked me to go in place of Ben Davies (I get to pretend to be Ben for a week!).

Kerith has teamed up with Tearfund & the Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia to work with local churches in Serenje to help provide practical assistance for those living with HIV.

They are in the first years of this project so it will be really inspiring to see the difference a partnership can make.

At RFC we already have a history of getting involved with local churches overseas so I am hoping this will be another investment of time that will help us keep focused on world mission and helping the poor.

Proverbs 4

Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life (v23).

The well spring of my life is my heart - my heart should both refresh & nourish me and it will dictate my outlook in life. If the water from this wellspring is polluted or has run dry, it will have a negative effect on me and those around me. So I need to guard my heart.

I need to guard against pride & envy & jealousy. I need to guard against ranking myself against others. I need to guard against a poverty mentality and against worry.

I need to think about whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is admirable, to think about anything that is excellent or praise worthy (Phil 4v8).

I need to talk to myself more. To talk to myself about Jesus and His gospel. In so doing I will guard my heart and enjoy a free flowing wellspring that will nourish me, my family & my friends.

Friday, 3 April 2009

Proverbs 3

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight (v5-6).

I trust in Him when giving again is reckless.
I trust in Him when caring again is foolish.
I trust in Him when believing again is painful.
I trust in Him when serving again is ridiculous.
I trust in Him when going again is resisted.
I trust in Him when praying again seems fruitless.
I trust in Him when forgiving again seems empty.
I trust in Him when leading again is exhausting.

I trust in Him because I have met the Jesus of the Bible and He makes sense when life comes together and when life unravels.

Proverbs 2

(Through seeking wisdom) you will walk in the ways of good men and keep to the paths of the righteous (v20).

I want to walk in the ways of men like Ben Davies (69 and still passionate for preaching Jesus), Nate Saint (he made a model aircraft for his son before flying his team to their martydom), and James Fraser (who, aged 21 went to China and laboured for the rest of his life to win the Lisu people to Christ).

I am now 41 and realise that, in most respects, how I live my life is down to me. I want to choose the well marked paths of the righteous. I want my life to count, and in kingdom economy, that starts with seeking true wisdom.

Proverbs 1

The proverbs of Solomon son of David, king of Israel:

for acquiring a disciplined and prudent life,
doing what is right and just and fair. (v1,3)

Doing what is right and just and fair is hugely important to me as a husband, father & leader. Therefore, I intend to read a chapter from Proverbs each day and then briefly blog on the verse that most captures my attention.

Let's see how I get on.
