EXPLORING GOD’S WORD [14]


EXPLORING GOD’S WORD [14] Selfishness!
a/ Proverbs 28:25 He that is of a proud heart stirreth up strife, but he that putteth his trust in the Lord shall prosper.
b/ Matthew 19:21 Jesus said unto him, “If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell what thou hast and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in Heaven; and come and follow Me.”
c/ Mark 8:26 And He sent him away to his house, saying, “Neither go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town.”
27 And Jesus went out with His disciples into the towns of Caesarea Philippi; and on the way He asked His disciples, saying unto them, “Who do men say that I am?”
d/ Luke 12:15 And He said unto them, “Take heed and beware of covetousness, for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.”
16 And He spoke a parable unto them, saying, “The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully.
17 And he thought within himself, saying, ‘What shall I do, because I have no room to store my fruits?’
18 And he said, ‘This will I do. I will pull down my barns and build greater, and there will I store all my fruits and my goods.
19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years. Take thine ease; eat, drink, and be merry.’
20 But God said unto him, ‘Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee. Then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?’
21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself and is not rich toward God.”
[ also read Luke 16:19-31 ]
e/ Philippians 2:3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem the other better than himself.
