Series Big Idea
God’s wisdom, understanding, and knowledge can help us build rare and beautiful relationships.
“By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established;
through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.” -Proverbs 24:3-4
Imagine your life as a house with each of its rooms representing different relationships. Gathered in the dining room are those who are or have become family. The bedroom represents the one with whom you long to experience intimacy. In the kids room are all the children you know. And, of course, the front door determines who is given access to your life. We all long for those rare and beautiful relationships that will fill our lives with joy, happiness, and love. In this series, we’ll see how God’s wisdom can help us build those relationships.
