    based on 19 ratings

    Uzziah was a descendant of King David. Judah made Uzziah King in place of his father when he was 16 years of age, and Uzziah was king for 52 years! God’s word also indicates that Uzziah did what was right in God’s eyes; he sought to please God!

    based on 316 ratings

    God doesn’t cause trouble and adversity, but He uses trouble to refine some humility in us. While trouble causes some people to raise their faces to heaven and become bitter, others bow their knees before God and become better.

  • The Pharisees: Stuck In Correctness Series

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Jun 30, 2009
    based on 2 ratings

    It is easier to be smug than satisfied, to be correct than compassionate, to be religious than real. What we need to do is to cry, "Lord forgive my sin."

    The surest formula for unhappiness is have to be right, all of the time. If you are expected to be one hundred percent correct, never making a mistake, no blunders allowed, then you are asking for a serious heart attack, for high blood pressure, and for plain old unhappiness. It’s an awesome burden more

    This message gives life lessons found in the story of the tower of babel. I show how the power of pride, unity and communication where in a group of people and how it shaped history. It was also the introcution to my message on the Anti Christ.

  • Test 6: Pride Test, Part 2 Series

    Contributed by Jim Drake on Jan 7, 2008
    based on 47 ratings

    The pride test is actually a three part test. We already covered the first part when we talked about selfish pride (Pride Test, Part 1). The second part of the test is about presumptive pride. That’s where our text takes us today.
