  2. 2. HOW TO FAIL IN LIFE
  3. 3. If you want to fail in life, then don’t plan ahead. Don’t think of the future. Don’t make any sacrifices. “If it feels good, do it.”
  4. 4. Live for the moment. Don’t worry about the past. Don’t think about the future. Just live for NOW.
  5. 5. Blame others. Be bitter. Harbor grudges. Demand your rights. Always stand up for yourself.
  6. 6. Insist on everything done your way. Remember to always to be pessimistic. Be negative. Be critical of others. Participate in gossip.
  7. 7. Live on the edge, push your limits. Its your body, you have a right to choose to do with it whatever you wish Be selfish. Strive to be popular.
  8. 8. Hire- purchase anything you want. Live in debt. Max out your credit cards. Gamble. Take a chance.
  9. 9. Always buy lotto tickets and visit the casino whenever you can. Experiment and indulge in every vice – cigarette, alcohol, and drugs. Don’t worry about your health. Don’t think about tomorrow.
  10. 10. Give in to pagan peer pressure. Immerse yourself in the world’s music, fashion, fads, films and friends. Spend lots of time paging through worldly magazines. Spend! Spend! Spend!
  11. 11. Why pray when you can worry? Don’t read the Bible, nor think about God, nor consider any issues in the light of eternity and the Day of Judgment. That’s such a long way ahead.
  12. 12. Don’t think about others. Let your personal theme song be: “I Did It My Way!”
  13. 13. If you want to be an ultimate failure in life, it is very important that you NEVER volunteer and NEVER commit yourself. ‘Look after number one.” Be self-centered. Don’t take personal responsibility for anything.
  14. 14. Listen to gossip and pass it on to others. Forward any slanderous E-mail onto as many other people on your E-list as possible.
  15. 15. • Love your sins & the deceptions & lies which enslave you.
  16. 16. • Criticise those who try to warn you of the deceptions of the world.

  20. 20. “But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6:33
  21. 21. “What does the Lord your God ask of you, but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all His ways, to love Him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.” Deuteronomy 10:12
  22. 22. “ Therefore, rid yourself of all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy, envy and slander of every kind.” 1 Peter 2:1
  23. 23. “ Do not go about spreading slander among your people. Do not do anything that endangers your neighbour’s life. I am the LORD.” Leviticus 19:15-16

  28. 28. In the light of eternity, those who want to succeed should fear God alone. The fear of the Lord is beginning of wisdom. We should delight ourselves in the Lord, seek first His Kingdom, placing God’s Word above all things.
  29. 29. The successful Christian studies his Bible every day. Prayer is an intrical part of his daily life. “ Trust and obey for there is no other way.” A successful Christian honours his elders, humbles himself before the Lord, takes personal responsibility, forgives freely and repents promptly.
  30. 30. Always ask, what does the Bible say? Do to others what you want them to do to you. Be unselfish. Be generous. Be a good listener.
  31. 31. Exercise patience and servanthood. Be a reader. Study to show yourself approved unto God. A reading Christian is a growing Christian. Readers make leaders.

  33. 33. Time is the most valuable, non-renewable resource. Develop a high standard of work ethic.
  34. 34. Find a Godly mentor. Make use of the means of Grace. Learn what it means to engage in spiritual warfare. Select your friendships carefully, remembering that bad company ruins good character (1 Corinthians 15:33).
  35. 35. Be careful what education you invest in. Be very selective about the kind of entertainment you expose your heart and mind to. Be cautious in your finances. Never live in debt.
  36. 36. Do not outspend your income. Tithe. Be generous. Save.
  37. 37. Do a thorough job of repentance and restitution.
  38. 38. Know the Ten Commandments and consistently try to apply them in your daily life.
  39. 39. Be kind to animals. “ A good man is kind to his animals, but the wicked are cruel to theirs.” Proverbs 12:10
  40. 40. Be disciplined. Make use of both physical and spiritual exercise (1 Timothy 4:8-16). Count your blessings. Prayer – just do it!
  41. 41. “ Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our Faith.” Hebrews 12:2
  42. 42. “ For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those who hearts are fully committed to Him.” 2 Chronicles 16:9
  43. 43. TRUST AND OBEY
  44. 44. When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word, What a glory He sheds on our way! While we do His good will, He abides with us still, and with all who will trust and obey. Chorus: Trust and obey, for there’s no other way To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
  45. 45. Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies, But His smile quickly drives it away; Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear, Can abide while we trust and obey. Chorus: Trust and obey, for there’s no other way To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
  46. 46. Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share, But our toil He doth richly repay; Not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a cross, But is blessed if we trust and obey. Chorus: Trust and obey, for there’s no other way To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
  47. 47. But we never can prove the delights of His love Until all on the altar we lay; For the favour He shows, for the joy He bestows, Are for them who will trust and obey. Chorus: Trust and obey, for there’s no other way To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
  48. 48. Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet, Or we’ll walk by His side in the way; What He says we will do, where He sends we will go; Never fear, only trust and obey. Chorus: Trust and obey, for there’s no other way To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
