Proverbs 11:25

The sermon text for this Lord’s Day will be Proverbs 11:25.

Whoever brings blessing will be enriched,
and one who waters will himself be watered.

Here are some questions to assist you in preparing for this week’s sermon.

1. Solomon describes the person who “brings blessing” and “waters.” Consult different translations. These are verbs; they define action. List twelve different categories of action that “bring blessing” and “water” in the manner that Solomon is describing.

2. Can you remember anything Jesus spoke in the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7) that parallels the message of Proverbs 11:25?

3. Consider the application of this verse at three different levels: (1) the individual, (2) the local church, and (3) the universal church. How does “watering” and “being watered” apply at each of these levels?

4. How does faith/trust in God factor into this Proverb?

5. Can you cite a few real-life examples of this Proverb being fulfilled in your life?
