On October 18th, Centerpointe Church launches a new sermon series called "Pursuit." This series is based in the Book of Proverbs. It seems that everyone is pursuing something: wealth, power, influence, happiness, etc. The Book of Proverbs tells us that the greatest pursuit is that of wisdom.
My particular favorite Proverb is chapter two:
“My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding, and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He holds victory in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless, for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones. Then you will understand what is right and just and fair—every good path. For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.” (Proverbs 2:1–10 NIV)
