Sometimes, our children need to be told they are bad so we can point them to the One who is good. Slide: You can’t always trust your eyes. Slide: Gen. 3:6 When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make [one] wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate. 7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings. Slide: Gen. 13:10 Lot lifted up his eyes and saw all the valley of the Jordan, that it was well watered everywhere--[this was] before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah--like the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt as you go to Zoar. Slide: Gen. 16:5 And Sarai said to Abram, "May the wrong done me be upon you. I gave my maid into your arms, but when she saw that she had conceived, I was despised in her sight. May the LORD judge between you and me." 6 But Abram said to Sarai, "Behold, your maid is in your power; do to her what is good in your sight." So Sarai treated her harshly, and she fled from her presence. Slide: James 4:6b …"GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE." What is more arrogant than designer religion and morals? God does not exist to prosper and serve us. Slide: What’s more dangerous to the church than the hireling?
