Exploring the Depths of Proverbs


Last week we explored what Carol Dweck in her book Mindset calls a “fixed mindset.” This mindset views failures, mistakes, and shortcomings as indictments upon who a person is, rather than a chance to grow. This week we’ll look at a “growth mindset” and see how it unleashes the power to rise to your full potential. As we grab our snorkeling gear and take a deeper look at Proverb 19:25, we’ll see the breathtaking freedom and untapped potential in being like the “simple”:
Flog a mocker, and the simple will learn prudence;
rebuke the discerning, and they will gain knowledge.

Join us as we see that it is an amazing thing to understand the gospel to such a deep level that we can welcome failure in our lives on a daily basis!
