“Let That Be A Lesson To You”

1 Corinthians 10:1–13

INTRODUCTION

Often while growing up (and even still today) when I would make a mistake my dad was always there to encourage me not to make the same mistake twice. His encouragement came in the form of his sage wisdom, “Let that be a lesson to you!” Paul in writing to the Christians at Corinth encourages them to learn lessons, not only from their own mistakes but also from the mistakes of their forefathers.
