Summary: A young mother asked me if there were an ANGER MANGEMENT CLASS for her 4 year old? I wanted to say yes! You take the class the child will improve? It is all about choices?
TAKE A GOOD LOOK --- ARE WE CREATING A FRANKENSTEIN?
By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com
I do this in two parts.
Jeremiah 29:11 (KJV) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD,
thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Jeremiah 29:11 (MSG) I know what I'm doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you,
not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.
Perhaps I should start this lesson with a great truth... WHERE ARE YOU TODAY?
SOMETIMES WE WILL NEVER CHANGE UNTIL THE PAIN OF STAYING THE SAME
IS GREATER GREATER THAN THE PAIN OF CHANGE.
Haggai 1:5 Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.
Haggai 1:7 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.
Haggai 1:5 (MSG) And then a little later, God-of-the-Angel-Armies spoke out again:
"Take a good, hard look at your life. Think it over.
Haggai 1:7 (MSG) That's why God-of-the-Angel-Armies said:
"Take a good, hard look at your life. Think it over."
I. INTRODUCTION: IT IS EASY TO MISS WHAT IS IMPORTANT AFTER THE
WELL GOES DRY AND WE HAVE NO WATER TO DRINK?
HAD DO WE ESTABLISH HOW IMPORTANT OTHER PEOPLE ARE TO YOU?
A. LET US HAVE A CONTEST: WHO IS THE MOST IMPORTANT?
Have you ever heard about the argument the fingers were having?
The five fingers were in a heated discussion as to which finger was the greatest?
1. THUMB said he was the greatest: one trait of a human is so important to the
human being, he has a opposing finger, the man uses me to hitch hike,
thus I am the most important...
2. INDEX FINGER said: I am the most important, I am the forefinger, I am the
pointer, and man uses me to pick the nose for breathing purposes.
3. The GREAT FINGER knew he was the longest and middle fingers,
he knew how important he was.
4. The RING FINGER noted he was the finger that human's express their love,
he wears the expensive diamond and gold... I most be important.
5. The PINKY FINGER said I cried WEE WEE all the way home...
I many be short, but I am the best.
The contest would be easy? Who can pick up a dollar bill will be elected as the
VIP? See none of them could do this job a lone? Only by working together can this
task be accomplished...
B. I have a friend that I knew her parents before she was born. I watched her grow up.
She has reconnected 2 months ago after not seeing her in 30 years.
SHE WROTE A COMMENT THIS WEEK?
DO THEY HAVE ANY ANGER MANGEMENT CLASSES FOR TODDLERS?
I want so bad to answer her: YES, SEND MOMMY AND DADDY TO ANGER
MANGEMENT and you might change THE KIDS ATTITUDE...
II. GOD GIVES A BABY, THAT IS HIS GIFT TO US...
WHAT WE DO WITH THAT LIFE CAN BE OUR GIFT BACK TO GOD...
WE BECOME A SUM TOTAL OF OUR DAILY MENIAL CHOICES...
A. 3 + 2 + 5 + 10 = 20
Joshua 24:13 And I have given you a land for which ye did not labour, and cities which
ye built not, and ye dwell in them; of the vineyards and oliveyards which ye planted not
do ye eat.
14 Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the
gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye
15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve;
whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the
gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
16 And the people answered and said, God forbid that we should forsake the LORD, to serve
B. CHOOSE YOU THIS DAY...
2 Corinthians 9:6 But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which
soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.
Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he
also reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the
Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
III. WANT TO LOOK AT HONEST CHOICES... DANIEL LIVES IN A DAY OF OPPORTUNITIES...
WASTED YEARS, WASTED YEARS O, HOW FOOLISH?
A. Daniel was called in A DANGEROUS DAY, he was far from home and no one would know about
