Proverbs 13d

  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. November 6, 2013 1
  2. 2. Proverbs 13:17 A wicked messenger falleth into mischief: but a faithful ambassador is health. What’s the chief difference between the two? Faithfulness or Trustworthiness “Anyone who accepts a duty, whether it be large or small, should perform it faithfully. I have failed this time, but it will not happen again. My duties as king await me.” King Alfred -- From King Alfred and the Cakes taken from the Book of Virtues. If you have failed, say so, and don’t make a habit of it. 2
  3. 3. THE BOY WE WANT A boy that is truthful and honest And faithful and willing to work; But we have not a place that we care to disgrace with a boy that is ready to shirk. Wanted -- a boy you can tie to, A boy that is trusty and true, A boy that is good to old people, And kind to the little ones too. 3
  4. 4. A boy that is nice to the home folks, And pleasant to sister and brother, A boy who will try when things go awry To be helpful to father and mother. These are the boys we depend on -Our hope for the future, and then Grave problems of state and the world's work await Such boys when they grow to be men. (Taken from The Book of Virtues, William J. Bennett, editor) 4
  5. 5. Luke 19 12 He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. 13 And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come. 14 But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us. 15 And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading. 5
  6. 6. 16 Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds. 17 And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities. 18 And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds. 19 And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities. 20 And another came, saying, Lord, behold, here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin: 21 For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow. 6
  7. 7. 22 And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow: 23 Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury? To be faithful has nothing to do with how much responsibility we have been given; nor with our gifts and talents with which we are blessed. 7
  8. 8. We may have little talent or ability, But we can be faithful to use what we have in the service of God. Be faithful to your family, your employer, your church, and to the True God. 8
  9. 9. 18 Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction: but he that regardeth reproof shall be honored. Will you learn, or do you think you already know? Do you have a teachable spirit, or are you a hard-headed know-it-all? It matters! 9
  10. 10. 19 The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul: but it is abomination to fools to depart from evil. Everyone wants the same things: Joy, peace, love But a fool thinks he can have them through sin. Hebrews 11 24-25 By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter; Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; 10
  11. 11. John, Tom, and James by Charles Henry Ross John was a bad boy, and beat a poor cat; Tom put a stone in a blind man’s hat; James was the boy who neglected his prayers; They’ve all grown up ugly, and nobody cares. They all thought they were having fun by being mean, but it didn’t turn out well. It never will! 11
  12. 12. We enjoy life through faith in God and obedience to His Word. Willingly do all that God teaches us to do. Do nothing that God’s Word counsels against. Walk amiably with the Lord. 12
