Sermons on Proverbs
The book of Proverbs is composed of those sayings of the wise king Solomon, who ruled the nation of Israel. According to 1 Kings 4:32, Solomon “spoke three thousand proverbs.” The whole collection of these wise, simple sayings has a way of speaking to us as everyday people. They are applicable to all people at any period in history. This message focuses on one section of this treasure of wisdom authored by another “sage.” His name is Agur. We know little about him other than what we know from chapter 30 of Proverbs, but his inspired words have special significance for us in today’s world.
In this collection, the sixth of seven in the book, we come upon two portraits - one of the wise man, marked as a person of prayer, humility and reverence for God's Word. The other is of a generation of men, who are marked by foolish slander, arrogance, and whose end is destruction. In the first we see Jesus, in the second, the enemies of God.

Today we are going to look at the issue of approval and our potential addiction to it. I want to look at this subject because it seems to me that I see the fear of man or approval addiction too often in my life and the lives of others. I’m sure that you have said, “Why does it matter what they think of me?” And I’m also sure that you know someone who just “sucks the life” out of relationships because he or she seems to crave the approval of others. There are times when I feel like the fear of man is an epidemic, especially in the church.
