MIGHTY MEN FOR THE MASTER
II KINGS 5:1 Now Naaman, captain of the host of the king of Syria, was a great man with his master, and honourable, because by him the LORD had given deliverance unto Syria: he was also a mighty man in valour, but he was a leper.
I CHRONICLES 12
20 As he went to Ziklag, there fell to him of Manasseh, Adnah, and Jozabad, and Jediael, and Michael, and Jozabad, and Elihu, and Zilthai, captains of the thousands that were of Manasseh.
21 And they helped David against the band of the rovers: for they were all mighty men of valour, and were captains in the host.
22 For at that time day by day there came to David to help him, until it was a great host, like the host of God.
23 And these are the numbers of the bands that were ready armed to the war, and came to David to Hebron, to turn the kingdom of Saul to him, according to the word of the LORD.
24 The children of Judah that bare shield and spear were six thousand and eight hundred, ready armed to the war.
25 Of the children of Simeon, mighty men of valour for the war, seven thousand and one hundred.
26 Of the children of Levi four thousand and six hundred.
27 And Jehoiada was the leader of the Aaronites, and with him were three thousand and seven hundred;
28 And Zadok, a young man mighty of valour, and of his father’s house twenty and two captains.
29 And of the children of Benjamin, the kindred of Saul, three thousand: for hitherto the greatest part of them had kept the ward of the house of Saul.
30 And of the children of Ephraim twenty thousand and eight hundred, mighty men of valour, famous throughout the house of their fathers.
31 And of the half tribe of Manasseh eighteen thousand, which were expressed by name, to come and make David king.
32 And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment.
33 Of Zebulun, such as went forth to battle, expert in war, with all instruments of war, fifty thousand, which could keep rank: they were not of double heart.
TITLE OF MESSAGE –MIGHTY MEN FOR THE MASTER
***WHEN YOU THINK OF FATHER’S DAY, WHAT COMES TO YOUR MIND?
One little boy defined Father’s Day best -- when he said that Father’s Day was just like Mother’s Day, the only difference is that you don’t spend as much money on the gift -- most of you men would agree with me when I say, what gift.
I read a statistic that stated that the greatest numbers of long distance phone calls are made on Mother’s Day; however, the largest number of collect calls are made on Father’s Day.
Someone wrote these humorous words entitled “The World According to Dad.” These are words that most dads have said at some time or another to their children -- So dads listen up and see if these saying describe you:
• This is going to hurt me -- more that it is going to hurt you.
• Be quiet, I’m trying to watch the game
• Bring back my change
• Ask your mother
• What do you think I’m made of?
• You want me to take you where?
• You ya’ll don’t understand, when I was your age I walked five miles to and from school and it was uphill both ways.
• Turn them lights off -- you don’t pay no bills around here
• Alright now -- if you break your leg, don’t come running to me
• Get down before
