Bible Text: 2 Samuel 12 |

Series:

“You will say that these are very small sins and doubtless, like all young tempters, you are anxious to be able to report spectacular wickedness. But do remember, the only thing that matters is the extent to which you separate the man from the enemy (God). It does not matter how small the sins are, provided that their cumulative effect is to keep the man away from the Light… Murder is no better than cards if cards can do the trick.

The Numbers Problem The complaining and critical spirit in the book of Numbers is instructive to you and me today.

What the Bible says about Fear 5-year old Johnny was in the kitchen as his mother was preparing supper. She asked him to go into the pantry and get her a can of tomato soup, but he didn’t want to go in alone. "It’s dark in there and I’m scared." She asked again, and he persisted.
