This is the final teaching in this series of subject studies from the book of Proverbs. I wanted to wrap this series up with a verse everyone could remember. Rather than examining a thread of verses throughout the whole book gathered around one common theme, this single verse will be the study of this evening.
And what could be more important? The subject is having God pour out His Spirit on our lives. This is what gives life to religion. We can all relate to Ezekiel's vision of the valley of dried out, bleached bones. Only the Holy Spirit can give life to the dry bones of religious practice. This is what lifts it above self improvement and moral reform. Who, with any kind of sense at all, could ask for more than to have God's Spirit poured out on his or her life?
