    1.Wisdom is seen as priority #1 in life’s choices. It is referred to as ‘she’ and ‘her’. We are referred to as ‘my son’. This is close to our lives.
    (箴言 4:1 新改訳)子どもらよ。父の訓戒に聞き従い、悟りを得るように心がけよ。
    (Proverbs 4:1 NIV) Listen, my sons, to a father’s instruction; pay attention and gain understanding.
    (箴言 4:6 新改訳)知恵を捨てるな。それがあなたを守る。これを愛せ。これがあなたを保つ。
    (Proverbs 4:6 NIV) Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you.
    “People buy into the leader before they buy into the plan.” ~ John Maxwell
    (ルカ 6:39-40 新改訳)イエスはまた一つのたとえを話された。「いったい、盲人に盲人の手引きができるでしょうか。ふたりとも穴に落ち込まないでしょうか。(40)弟子は師以上には出られません。しかし十分訓練を受けた者はみな、自分の師ぐらいにはなるのです。
    (Luke 6:39-40 NIV) He also told them this parable: “Can the blind lead the blind? Will they not both fall into a pit? (40) The student is not above the teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like their teacher.

    2.These are universal principles - for believers and non-believers. They are unbreakable.
     世間一般的な原則 – 信じている人も信じていない人も。普遍的なもの。
    (箴言16:32 新改訳)怒りをおそくする者は勇士にまさり、自分の心を治める者は町を攻め取る者にまさる。
    (Proverbs 16:32 NIV) Better a patient person than a warrior, one with self-control than one who takes a city.
    (箴言31:10 JCB)ほんとうに良い妻を見つけたら、宝石よりもすばらしいものを手に入れたことになるのです。
    (Proverbs 31:10 NIV) A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.
    (箴言31:28-31 JCB)子どもたちは彼女をほめ、夫も負けずにほめます。「君はほんとうにすばらしい。世界中を探しても、君ほどの女性はいない。」人は見かけの美しさにすぐだまされますが、そんな美しさは長続きしません。しかし主を恐れる女はほめたたえられます。「りっぱな女だ」と評判になり、ついには国の指導者にまで称賛されるようになります。
    (Proverbs 31:28-31 NIV) Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: 29 “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.” (30) Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. (31) Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

    3.They do not guarantee success in all areas. Bad things do happen to good people (Job).

    4.They are easy quotes to memorise and live by.
    (伝道3:1 JCB)何事にも定まった時があります。
    (Ecclesiastes 3:1 NIV) There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:

    5.They come in poetic thoughts- these are examples of repetitive thought and opposite thoughts.
     詩的な考え方 – 繰り返す考えや、反対の考えの例え
    (雅歌4:11 JCB)いとしい人よ。あなたのくちびるは、はちみつでできている。舌の裏にはみつとクリームがある。あなたの服は山やレバノン杉の香りがする。
    (Song of Solomon 4:11 NIV) Your lips drop sweetness as the honeycomb, my bride; milk and honey are under your tongue. The fragrance of your garments is like the fragrance of Lebanon.

    6.We must understand something of culture to interpret some of them. Live in corner of rood —> live in garage
    (Proverbs 25:24) It is better to dwell in a corner of a housetop, Than in a house shared with a contentious woman.
    (箴言 25:24 JCB)怒りっぽい女と大邸宅に住むより、屋根裏部屋の片隅で暮らすほうがましです。

    7.Jesus’ parables are a special case. イエスの例え話は特別
    They are not actual true stories 実話ではない
    They draw one key point and a few side points. 一つのメインポイントといくつかの小さいポイント
    They are very serious truths to understand Jesus and his Kingdom.
    We must move to personal application as soon as possible. すぐに個人的な適用に移る必要がある
    Journal: ジャーナル
    (Proverbs 3:3-6 NKJV) Let not mercy and truth forsake you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart, (4) And so find favor and high esteem In the sight of God and man. (5) Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; (6) In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
    (箴言 3:3-6 JCB) いつも正しい生活をし、人には親切にしなさい。この二つが心から行えるように、しっかり身につけなさい。(4-5)神にも人にも喜ばれ、正しい判断力と英知を得たいなら、とことん主に信頼しなさい。決して自分に頼ってはいけません。(6)何をするにも、主を第一にしなさい。主がどうすればよいか教えてくださり、それを成功させてくださいます。

    世界を変える「与える愛」 Love That Changes The World - “Love That Gives”
    (ルカ10:30-37 JCB)イエスは直接答える代わりに、たとえを話されました。「エルサレムからエリコへ旅をしていたユダヤ人が、強盗に襲われました。強盗どもは、身ぐるみはぎ取り、あり金全部を奪うと、その人を殴ったり、蹴ったりして半殺しにし、道ばたに放り出して逃げて行きました。(31)ちょうどそこへ、ユダヤの祭司が通りかかりました。ふと見ると、旅人が倒れています。でも、めんどうに巻き込まれたくなかったので、道の反対側へ回り、何くわぬ顔で通り過ぎてしまいました。(32)しばらくすると、今度はレビ人(神殿で奉仕する人)が通りかかりましたが、彼も、倒れている旅人を横目でちらりとながめただけで行ってしまいました。(33)ところが、常日頃ユダヤ人に軽蔑されていたサマリヤ人がたまたま通りかかり、旅人を見つけました。その人をかわいそうに思ったサマリヤ人は、(34)急いでそばに近づいて、傷口に薬をぬり、包帯を巻いて応急手当をしました。それから自分のろばに乗せ、宿屋まで運んで、一晩中、看病してあげました。(35)翌日、宿屋の主人にデナリ銀貨二枚を渡し、『あの人を介抱してあげてください。足りない分は、私が帰りに寄って払いますから』と頼みました。(36)この三人のうちだれが、強盗に襲われた人の隣人になったと思いますか。」(37)律法の専門家は答えました。「もちろん、親切にしてやった人です。」この答えを聞くと、イエスは言われました。「そのとおりです。あなたも同じようにしなさい。」
    (Luke 10:30-37 NLT) Jesus replied with a story: “A Jewish man was traveling from Jerusalem down to Jericho, and he was attacked by bandits. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him up, and left him half dead beside the road. (31) “By chance a priest came along. But when he saw the man lying there, he crossed to the other side of the road and passed him by. (32) A Temple assistant walked over and looked at him lying there, but he also passed by on the other side. (33) “Then a despised Samaritan came along, and when he saw the man, he felt compassion for him. (34) Going over to him, the Samaritan soothed his wounds with olive oil and wine and bandaged them. Then he put the man on his own donkey and took him to an inn, where he took care of him. (35) The next day he handed the innkeeper two silver coins, telling him, ‘Take care of this man. If his bill runs higher than this, I’ll pay you the next time I’m here.’ (36) “Now which of these three would you say was a neighbor to the man who was attacked by bandits?” Jesus asked. (37) The man replied, “The one who showed him mercy.” Then Jesus said, “Yes, now go and do the same.”

    Picture Of Love That Takes From Each Other / Picture Of Love That Gives To Each Other
    -このストーリに出てくるサマリア人の様になるには? How can we be like the Samaritan in this story?
    1. イエスの生き様から伝わる愛を感じている Feeling The Love That Was Modeled By Jesus
    (1コリント13:4-8a JCB)愛は寛容であり、愛は親切です。また人をねたみません。愛は自慢せず、高慢になりません。礼儀に反することをせず、自分の利益を求めず、怒らず、人のした悪を思わず、不正を喜ばずに真理を喜びます。すべてをがまんし、すべてを信じ、すべてを期待し、すべてを耐え忍びます。愛は決して絶えることがありません。
    (1 Corinthians 13:4-8a NIV) Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. (5) It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. (6) Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. (7) It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. (8) Love never fails.
    No need to be perfect, just commit to this type of love as your lifestyle (Decision)
    (John 3:16 NLT) “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
    (1 John 4:9-10 NLT) God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. (10) This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.
    2、永遠の視点から今を見る Look At The Present From The Eternal Perspective
    -祭司、レビ人、サマリア人の違いがここにある。 Difference Between Priest, Levite, Samaritan.
    Naturally in the world, we think about “how is this going to benefit me if I give or do something for them”
    (2 Corinthians 9:6-7 NLT) Remember this—a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop. But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop. (7) You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.”[
