  • 1. 1 Gospel Baptist Tabernacle 781 Salem Road, Rossville, GA 30741 Where the Love of God abounds, everyone is welcome. Children’s Church taught by Paul and Marsha Davis during preaching. September 25, 2013
  • 2. 2 Proverbs 12 1 Whoso loveth instruction loveth knowledge: but he that hateth reproof is brutish. Brutish = like cattle; dumb as an ox. You have to have a teachable spirit to gain knowledge. If you don’t love to learn, you will never grow to maturity in the Lord.
  • 3. 3 The love of learning and growing is an essential part of becoming a mature Christian. If you have the same beliefs and hold to the same ideas and desires that you had as a teenager, You have not grown at all; you are still a baby in your Christian walk.
  • 4. 4 2 A good man obtaineth favor of the LORD: but a man of wicked devices will He condemn. God’s favor is to be desired above all else. A good man is a man of good character and behavior. We must strive to be our very best in thought, word and deed. We do not want the condemnation of God. Submit to God’s Word and Spirit.
  • 5. 5 3 A man shall not be established by wickedness: but the root of the righteous shall not be moved. Though men may advance themselves by sinful arts, they cannot settle and secure themselves. But those who by faith are rooted in Christ, are firmly fixed. Matthew Henry Concise Bible Commentary. A stable life is to be desired far more than to gain advancement, only to fall back time after time.
  • 6. 6 4 A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones. A woman who strives to be her very best in all things, all the time is a virtuous woman.. She cares most about her husband and her children; Not about herself. She will never neglect her home and family to chase her own desires for pleasure or advancement in this world.
  • 7. 7 5 The thoughts of the righteous are right: but the counsels of the wicked are deceit. Thoughts and words reveal character. All deceit is wickedness; the righteous are open and honest in all our dealings.
  • 8. 8 6 The words of the wicked are to lie in wait for blood: but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them. Some people speak with intent to hurt. God says they are wicked. The righteous strive to heal the hurting.
  • 9. 9
  • 10. 10 As the children of the Most High God, we are expected to speak kind and healing words. Apply to self !
  • 11. 11 Most importantly Speak kind words.
  • 12. 12 Ephesians 4 31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: 32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you. Most marriages could be saved and made joyful if husbands and wives would live by this rule. Every Christian home should be a refuge from the world – a place of peace and joy.
