Read Proverbs 30:1-20.
III. A GENERATION THAT IS RECKLESS IN PRIDE VERSE 13.
Also 2 Timothy 3:1-5, “heady, high minded.”
The Bible says, “pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.” Proverbs 16:18.
Man loves to boast, “thinking himself to be something when he is nothing.”
HOW TO AVOID PRIDE?
- Realize you are NOTHING.
- Realize you can do nothing WITHOUT HIM.
- Realize His is EVERYTHING.
IV. A GENERATION THAT IS RUTHLESS IN PRACTICE.
We are surrounded with it today. Look at the terrible things happing in our country and condemnation of our President, what a mocker of justice, etc.
NOW HERE IS THE CHALLENGE: LET’S KEEP OUR HOMES IN SUCH A WAY THAT THE INFLUENCE OF THIS GENERATION DOES NOT AFFECT OUR HOMES. HOW?
- BELIEVE GOD.
- LIVE BY HIS WORD.
- STAND ON HIS PROMISES.
- BE WILLING TO PAY THE COST.
