Proverbs 15c choose righteousness

  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. Wednesday 1-15-2014 1
  2. 2. Proverbs 15:6 In the house of the righteous is much treasure: but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble. The more the wicked obtain, the more trouble they get into. Proverbs 10 22 The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and He addeth no sorrow with it. 2
  3. 3. Wicked is bad enough, but rich and wicked is worse. Dennis Rodman would have probably been wicked even with no money, but money and fame have allowed him to get involved with a North Korean dictator. 3
  4. 4. 7 The lips of the wise disperse knowledge: but the heart of the foolish doeth not so. Don’t seek advice from anyone who lives foolishly. Seek advice from someone who lives a godly life. A godly man or woman won’t tell you what you want to hear, but rather, what you need to hear. 4
  5. 5. Avoid those who will agree with you in your sin. Seek the company of those who live righteously. 5
  6. 6. 8 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is His delight. Hebrews 13 15 Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise -- the fruit of lips that confess His Name. 16 And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. NIV 6
  7. 7. 1 Samuel 15:22 (TLB) 22 Samuel replied, "Has the Lord as much pleasure in your burnt offerings and sacrifices as in your obedience? Obedience is far better than sacrifice. He is much more interested in your listening to Him than in your offering the fat of rams to Him. James 5:16 (KJV) Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. 7
  8. 8. There is only one prayer that a wicked person can pray that God will answer. “Lord be merciful to me a sinner.” Repentant heart 8
  9. 9. 9 The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the LORD: but He loveth him that followeth after righteousness. The Word of God clearly defines the way of the wicked and the Way of righteousness. Each person chooses for himself. 9
  10. 10. Proverbs 23 29 Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes? 30 They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine. 31 Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his color in the cup, when it moveth itself aright. 32 At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder. 33 Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things. The way of the wicked Drinking and drugging lowers inhibitions. One does things he wouldn’t otherwise do. 10
  11. 11. 1 Corinthians 6 16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh. 17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. 18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. The way of the wicked Sexual sins are strongly warned against. Will you choose to obey? 11
  12. 12. Ephesians 4:28 (KJV) Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labor, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth. The wicked steal. Revelation 21 8 But the fearful (cowardly), and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. It takes courage to serve the Lord. 12
  13. 13. God has clearly set before us the way of righteousness and the way of the wicked. Choose! Do you have the courage to serve the Lord? 13
