My Title: TAKE HEED!


My Verse: 17

"17 But the wisdom from above is first of all pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere."

My Response:

Not many should become teachers. Read that again.

By his GOOD conduct, let him show his WORDS in the MEEKNESS of WISDOM. Your actions need to match your words. Your heart will fight you at every turn because it has to be sacrificed to do the pure thing, the peaceable thing, the gentle thing, open to reason, to be full of MERCY, impartial and sincere. These all come at the cost of YOU.

If you're going to teach God's Word, than you better KNOW God's Word. You will be judged with a greater strictness... DON'T TAKE THAT LIGHTLY Daniel.


My Notes:

  • Not many should become teachers... you will be judged with a greater strictness!

  • Your body doesn't want to be bridled.

  • How great a forest is set ablaze by such a small fire!

  • This can be for destruction or revival!

  • Neither can a salt pond yield fresh water. (So which are you?)

  • By his good conduct let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom.

  • Do you have selfish ambition in your heart? (READ THAT AGAIN)

  • Selfish ambition produces disorder and every vile practice!
