Proverbs 15:30

The sermon text for this Lord’s Day will be Proverbs 15:30.

The light of the eyes rejoices the heart,
and good news refreshes the bones.

1. By “light of the eyes,” Solomon is referring to the things seen with our eyes (Eccl 11:7). What are some things your eyes see that brings joy to your heart?

2. In the second sentence, Solomon is referring to favorable reports that are heard with our ears (Prov 25:25). What type of things do you hear that refresh your bones?

3. In Matthew 13:16, Jesus says to His disciples, “But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear.” What did Jesus mean by this? What is the context in which Jesus made this statement?

4. Why do some people “see” but not perceive and “hear” but not understand? (Is 6:9; Jer 5:21; Ezek 12:2; etc.)

5. How does James 1:22-25 instruct you to use your sense of sight and hearing? In what ways does this challenge you to live differently than you have in the past?
