Fundamentals - Seven People You Cannot Help - Part 3
YOU CAN’T HELP ANYONE WHO WANTS ALL THAT YOU HAVE EXCEPT THE ADVICE AND COUNSEL!
Proverbs 16:16 NASB
How much better it is to get wisdom than gold!
And to get understanding is to be chosen above silver.
● People want the stuff without the advice and sacrifice.
●Don’t give advice unless they ask for it.
Acts 8:18-23 NASB
Now when Simon saw that the Spirit was given through the laying on of the apostles’ hands, he offered them money, 19 saying, “Give this authority to me as well, so that everyone on whom I lay my hands may receive the Holy Spirit.” 20 But Peter said to him, “May your silver perish with you, because you thought you could acquire the gift of God with money! 21 You have no part or share in this matter, for your heart is not right before God. 22 Therefore, repent of this wickedness of yours, and pray to the Lord that, if possible, the intention of your heart will be forgiven you. 23 For I see that you are in the gall of bitterness and in the bondage of unrighteousness.”
QUESTIONS TO PONDER:
How does this apply to you?
Are you like a Simon?
Do you need to repent for wanting the ‘kingdom’ absent the KING?
