Sermon Date: September 24, 2017
Speaker: Pastor Martin Hawley
You win or lose by the path you choose. On National Back to Church Sunday, September 17 at 8:00, 9:30, and 11:00 a.m., South Bay Bible Church will begin a new, four-part series entitled, "Destinations: The Principle of the Path" and celebrate with a free catered lunch by LaVolpe Restaurant after the 11:00 a.m. service.
We all have places we want to end up in life. Yet the paths we choose often lead us away from our intended destinations. One poor decision can send us down the wrong road, crushing our dreams, and wasting years of our lives. As time passes, we look back wondering how we got off course, and how we can recover from broken dreams.
"Back to Church Sunday is a terrific time to try church again," says Martin Hawley, senior pastor, "and Destinations is a great series to get your life on track again."
In this four-part series, Pastor Hawley examines the disconnect between our dreams and the paths we take to reach them; and we will learn that our direction, not our intention, determines our destination:
Part 2 of 4: When you see trouble coming, don't ignore it. Do Something. A misstep will result in a mishap, regardless of the fact that you were mistaken. We've all ended up places we never meant to be--where life was complicated, and there were seemingly no good options. Looking back we saw the warning signs, but we just chose to ignore them. It doesn't have to be that way. By looking back at an old wise saying, we will learn to look ahead and avoid the danger that lies in wait for us down the road.
