Proverbs 6:6-11

The sermon text for this coming Lord’s Day is Proverbs 6:6-11. Here are some questions to assist you in preparing for the sermon.

1. What is it about the ant that Solomon is promoting as a virtue worthy of emulating? See also Proverbs 30:25. How would you summarize the sermon text into one sentence?

2. Solomon identifies the person who fails to be productive as a sluggard. Can you think of others biblical descriptions of how non-productivity manifests itself in people’s lives?

3. In consideration of verses 10 and 11, is poverty always the result of laziness?

4. Does God call people to be productive their entire life? What about youth? What about retirement? What about vacations? What about taking time away for recreation and entertainment? What can you cite as biblical support for your answers to these questions?

5. In what way(s) does Solomon charge to be productive challenge you to change the way you live?
