  2. 2. <ul><li>Fear God, Not People </li></ul><ul><li>12:1 Meanwhile, when many thousands of the crowd had gathered so that they were trampling on one another, Jesus began to speak first to his disciples, “Be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. 12:2 Nothing is hidden that will not be revealed, and nothing is secret that will not be made known. 12:3 So then whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in private rooms will be proclaimed from the housetops. </li></ul>NET Bible® ©1996-2006 by Biblical Studies Press, L.L.C. www.bible.org All rights reserved.

  3. 3. <ul><li>Fear God, Not People </li></ul><ul><li>12:4 “I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have nothing more they can do. 12:5 But I will warn you whom you should fear: Fear the one who, after the killing, has authority to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him! 12:6 Aren’t five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten before God. 12:7 In fact, even the hairs on your head are all numbered. Do not be afraid; you are more valuable than many sparrows. </li></ul>NET Bible® ©1996-2006 by Biblical Studies Press, L.L.C. www.bible.org All rights reserved. Luke 12:1-7 (NET Bible)

Those Pros At Looking Good Could Have Us Envious… Forget It! <ul><li>Innards are far superior to outards. </li></ul><ul><li>Recent scandals on Wall Street reinforce the idea… opulent life-styles and thin veneers often cover rotten and corrupt hearts. </li></ul><ul><li>Who can you think of whose apparent success, happiness and security went up in smoke? </li></ul>
  9. 9. Jesus Warns About The ‘Looking Good’ With Hopes Of Applause -- Matthew 6:1-18 <ul><li>Behavior ‘to be seen of men’ is wasted…God doesn’t like it.
