What to take on the journey … the don’t, the do, the why

1.  Don’t take money. 

Matthew 10 (New International Version, ©2010)

Jesus Sends Out the Twelve 9 “Do not get any gold or silver or copper to take with you in your belts— 10 no bag for the journey or extra shirt or sandals or a staff, for the worker is worth his keep. 11 Whatever town or village you enter, search there for some worthy person and stay at their house until you leave. 12 As you enter the home, give it your greeting.

 2. Take wisdom. 

Matthew 10 (New International Version, ©2010)

   16 “I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. 

3.  Here’s why. 

Proverbs 3 (New International Version, ©2010)

 13 Blessed are those who find wisdom,
   those who gain understanding,
14 for she is more profitable than silver
   and yields better returns than gold.
15 She is more precious than rubies;
   nothing you desire can compare with her.
16 Long life is in her right hand;
   in her left hand are riches and honor.
17 Her ways are pleasant ways,
   and all her paths are peace.
18 She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her;
   those who hold her fast will be blessed.

 19 By wisdom the LORD laid the earth’s foundations,
   by understanding he set the heavens in place;
20 by his knowledge the watery depths were divided,
   and the clouds let drop the dew.
