ABC August-20-2008

Tit 2:1-10;Pro 15:1-17;Luk 19:1-10;Est 1 Analysis: Tit: teaches sobriety, industry, deference. Pro: teaches there's a difference between skepticism & a fool(the "ad hominem", mocking response) Luk: teaches a changed heart prompts a changed life. Zacchaeus was willing to right what he'd done in terms of anything dishonest. Est: teaches that if one is in high positioni humility isn't wasted - especially if it's due to others higher than yourself. Vashti might have remained queen if she'd thought through her response and humbled herself to come when King Ahasuerus summoned her. Best Verse(s): Tit 2.7-10 Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us. Slaves are to be submissive to their own masters in everything; they are to be well-pleasing, not argumentative, not pilfering, but showing all good faith, so that in everything they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior. Pro 15.14 A scoffer does not like to be reproved;he will not go to the wise. Luk 19.8 And Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor. And if I have defrauded anyone of anything, I restore it fourfold.” Est 1.17a For the queen's behavior will be made known to all women, causing them to look at their husbands with contempt... Contract/Prayer: Help me know when to ask for help. Help me understand my situation & tasks. Help me keep a clear conscience.
