Fundamentals - Seven People You Cannot Help - Part 2
YOU CAN’T HELP SOMEONE WHO HAS NO RESPECT FOR ACHIEVEMENT!
Proverbs 13:20 NASB
One who walks with wise people will be wise,
But a companion of fools will suffer harm.
Proverbs 26:16 NLT
Lazy people consider themselves smarter
than seven wise counselors.
● Never MENTOR people who DON’T ASK QUESTIONS....
●Ask questions of mentors!
“In my experience, God uses us all as road maps for others. For some, we serve as a warning, for others, an inspiration on how to navigate a certain issue or problem. Some people become so irked with their lot in life that they build walls against other people’s successes. They can hear a story of someone who overcame the exact same obstacle they have and then dismiss them as having “got lucky”. When a man cannot look up to anyone at all, it is an issue of pride. I used to believe that only the successful and wealthy struggle with pride. I have since learned that Pride is not a respecter of gender, status or nationality. Pride becomes the warden, never allowing them to follow another out of the trap they are in.”
Questions To Ponder:
●Are you cynical or curious about the success of others? What is the Lord saying to you about your response to success?
