Sam has a way of attractive, but it comes at a high cost of the father, who wrote the words and Proverbs 5, wanted his son to know God's plan for marriage and that chapter provides a strong warning against adultery, but today on Truth for Life. Alistair Begg highlights the joy of marital faithfulness to squander your honor. Chapter 6, verse 32 and 33 Amanda commits adultery likes judgment.

Whoever does so destroys himself blows in disgrace or his lot.

A shame will never be wiped away, you destroy your freedom to destroy your best years and every other cinematic man does is outside of himself. When he commits sexual sin. He sends he violates against his own psyche, his own physicality. His relationship with God's relationship with his spouse, his relationship with his children. His relationship with his colleagues, his relationship with every single person and forgiven it may be a searing impact on it remains forever and anyone to tell you differently talking to you from an empty head from a close Bible widening the warnings are so strong, why do you think he pleads with his son DON'T PUT DOWN THIS ROAD. PLEASE LISTEN TO YOUR DAD BECAUSE YOU CAN NEVER REPAY THIS NOW FOR THOSE OF US ARE SITTING HERE AND SAY WELL YOU KNOW THIS IS VERY GOOD ADVICE ON BUDDIES MENTIONING THE FINELY BECAUSE OF MR. SO-AND-SO. I'VE BEEN MEANING TO MENTION THIS TO HIM AS IF SOMEHOW OR ANOTHER.

YOUR IMMUNE TO IT. IF YOU THINK YOUR IMMUNE TO IT.

YOU'RE IN GREAT DANGER OF THE PERSON IN THIS RESPECT THINGS THEY STAND TAKE HEED LEST THEY FALL FEW YEARS AGO. VERY GIFTED AND PROMINENT PASTOR IN THE UNITED KINGDOM LEFT HIS WIFE AND HIS FAMILY IN FAVOR OF A FRIEND. TREMENDOUS HULLABALOO ENSUED, BOTH IN THE CHRISTIAN AND IN THE SECULAR PRESS.

AMONG THE MANY ARTICLES AT THAT TIME WAS ONE IN THE DAILY TELEGRAPH IN ENGLAND WRITTEN BY A LADY CALLED AND ATKINS. I READ IT AT THE TIME AND I KEPT IT IN MY FILES. I THOUGHT THAT IT WAS VERY HONEST AND AND VERY CHALLENGING. SHE MENTIONED HOW SHE COULD THINK OF HARDLY ANYONE LESS LIKELY TO ABANDON HIS LOVED ONES IN THIS HIGHLY RESPECTED AND REVERED PASTOR, BUT SHE SAID SHE WAS NOT SURPRISED SHE HAD BEEN PREPARED FOR IT FOR A VERY IMPORTANT REASON.

THEN SHE WROTE THIS WHEN I WAS YOUNGER I USED TO FIND SOME CHRISTIAN TEACHING RATHER GLOOMY. THE DOCTRINE OF TOTAL DEPRAVITY.

FOR INSTANCE, I PREFER TO THINK EVERYONE'S JOLLY NICE REALLY.

SO WE ARE WE ARE MADE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD WITH THE DIVINE STAMP ON IS ALL. INCIDENTALLY, THIS IS AN ARTICLE IN THE DAILY TELEGRAPH IN THE SECULAR PRESS EARLIER THING ABOUT JOURNALISM AND THE ARTS OVER SEGA SERENA, IT'S POSSIBLE TO WRITE COGENTLY COHESIVELY IMPACT FULLY IN OUR DAY FOR ALL OF YOU IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEMS IN TEACHING CHILDREN DON'T HAVE THE BIBLE ALSO TEACHES THAT WE ARE FALLEN FROM THIS CREATED IDEAL AND NOW WE'RE ROTTEN THROUGH AND THROUGH. ALL OF US. I HAVE FRIENDS WHO CONSIDER THIS DEEPLY OFFENSIVE, BUT AS I GOT OLDER I HAVE FOUND IT INCREASINGLY LIBERATING. YOU SEE I TO AM AN ADULT OR SHE WRITES A FEW YEARS AGO I WAS IN A REMOTE PART OF THE WORLD, ALONG WITH THE OWNER OF AN IDYLLIC ISLAND AS THE DAYS WENT BY, HE BECAME MORE ATTENTIVE AND MORE ATTRACTIVE. IT WAS AN EXTREMELY PLEASANT SENSATION I WAS ENJOYING MYSELF GREATLY. MY WORK REQUIRED ME TO BE THERE AND MY HEAD INSISTED THAT I WAS ABOVE TEMPTATION, BUT I'M NOT. THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO. CONSEQUENTLY, I KNEW I MUST LEAVE URGENTLY.

I DID BY THE GRACE OF GOD I DIDN'T COMMIT ADULTERY NOT BEEN AND NOT YET BUT IT'S THERE IN MY HEART, BITING ITS TINY JESUS SAID, THAT MAKES ME AS BAD AS THE WORST OFFENDER HAPPILY BECAUSE I'VE ALWAYS BEEN TAUGHT THAT I AM CAPABLE OF ADULTERY. I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ON MY GUARD AGAINST IT.

AFTER ALL, IT DOESN'T START WHEN YOU JUMP INTO BED WITH YOUR LOVER BUTTON ONCE, YEARS EARLIER WHEN YOU TELL YOURSELF THAT YOUR FRIEND UNDERSTANDS YOU BETTER THAN YOUR SPOUSE WHO WANTS TO LOOK BACK OVER HIS LIFE AND FIND THAT VERSES 11 TO 14 FIT THE END OF YOUR LIFE GROANING WHEN YOU'RE FLASHING YOUR BODY ARE SPENT. VERSES 22 AND 23 ENSNARED BY EVIL DEEDS. THE CORDS OF SIN. TIMING IS UP DYING FOR LACK OF DISCIPLINE LED ASTRAY BY STUPIDITY AND FOLLY YOU SAY, HOW I HATED DISCIPLINE.

HOW I WISH I LISTENED TO MY FATHER HOW MY HEARTS BURN CORRECTION HOW I THOUGHT IT WAS AN ADDITION AND IT WAS A REDUCTION HOW I THOUGHT IT WOULD ADD AND IT ONLY SQUANDERED I WOULDN'T OBEY MY TEACHERS. I WOULD LISTEN TO MY INSTRUCTORS. I'VE COME TO THE BRINK ABOUT TO RUIN, AND LOOK AT ME IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WHOLE ASSEMBLY WAS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING. HOW HIGH IS THIS PRICE TOO HIGH FOR ANY OF US TO PAY. FINALLY, VERSES 15 TO 23. LOOK AT THIS PASSION THAT THERE IS TO ENJOY VERSES IN 15 AND 16 PROVIDE AN IMAGE OF IT IS NOT DIFFICULT TO GRASP AND EXPAND UPON IT THROUGH 17 IT SPEAKS OF EXCLUSIVITY PICTURE THERE IS OF THE ENJOYMENT OF THE PHYSICAL DIMENSIONS OF LIFE AND LOVE WITHIN MARRIAGE. LET THEM BE YOURS ALONE. THAT'S EXPLOSIVE, NEVER TO BE SHARED WITH STRANGERS.

WE UNDERSTAND THAT TO BE MARKED BY EXCLUSIVITY NOT SAW IN SOME DREADFUL BOOTIES, HALFHEARTED MATHEMATICAL RESTRICTIVE WAY BECAUSE IT IS TO BE MATCHED ALSO BY ECSTASY NOTICE. MAY YOUR FOUNTAIN BE BLESSED, LOOK AT THE BIRDS REJOICING WITHIN THE DESCRIPTION OF YOUR WIFE, A LOVING DAUGHTER GRACEFUL DEAR THAT SEMITIC POOR ATRIA MAY NOT FLOAT YOUR BOAT, PARTICULARLY IN MAY MAYBE DON'T WANT TO WRITE IT ON YOUR ANNIVERSARY CARD. BUT IF YOU UNDERSTAND SEMITIC SUMMERS AND WE HAVE TO TAKE GREAT CARE ABOUT YOUR ANNIVERSARY CARDS BUT IF YOU IF YOU IF YOU UNDERSTAND SEMITIC POINTS AND YOUR WIFE DIES THEN EGA MADE ACTUALLY AT IT AND MAYBE GOOD FOR A WEEKEND IN THE HILLS BECAUSE IS IS A VERY ATTRACTIVE PICTURE ALL RIGHT, BUT THE POINT IS YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE INTOXICATED BY OR CAPTIVATED BY HER ECSTATIC. AS A RESULT OF HER NOTICE.

THE LAST THING I MENTION OF IT IS NOT ONLY EXCLUSIVE AND ECSTATIC, BUT IT IS CONSTANCE. MAY YOU EVER BE CAPTIVATED BY HER LOVE. MAY HER BREASTS SATISFY YOU ALWAYS WIFE OR SEEK THE TRUTH. IN VERSE 19 FOR THE PARODY IN VERSE 20. WHEN I WROTE LASTING LOVE. AND WHENEVER IT WAS RESOLVED AND I GO BACK AND LOOK AT THIS OF 1997'S A LONG TIME NOW. I WROTE A SECTION IN HERE ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF THE EVER AND THE ALWAYS IF WERE GOING TO MAKE SURE THAT WE DON'T FACE MARITAL FAILURE, AND I WROTE AT THE TIME. MOST MARRIAGES DON'T DISINTEGRATE BECAUSE OF SOME BIZARRE EVENT THAT APPEARS LIKE A DEVASTATING SCUD MISSILE OUT OF THE BLUE MUCH MORE FREQUENTLY.

THE LOVE AND THE RELATIONSHIP GRADUALLY EVAPORATES A SLOW LEAK IN A TIRE THAT GOES UNDETECTED FOR A LONG TIME VIGILANCE AND CARE.

THEREFORE NECESSARY IN THE EVERYDAY EVENTS OF LIFE, AND NEITHER SUPERFICIAL OPTIMISM WILL BE FINE OR DEBILITATING PESSIMISM. THIS IS DESTINED FOR DESTRUCTION SHOULD PERMEATE OUR THINKING. WE NEED TO BE REALISTIC ABOUT THE CHALLENGES DEPENDENT UPON GOD'S RESOURCES AND COMMITTED TO SEEING THINGS THROUGH TO THE FINISH. ONE OF OUR FAVORITE SONGS AS A COUPLE IS WRITTEN BY ERIC KATZ AND BETH NIELSEN CHAPMAN IS CALLED ALL I HAVE, WAS MADE ALL THE MONEY MORE POIGNANT BY THE FIGHT THAT BETH NIELSEN CHAPMAN'S HUSBAND DIED IN THE INFANCY OF THE MARRIAGE, BUT SHE WROTE THESE WORDS, I FEEL LIKE I'VE KNOWN YOU FOREVER AND EVER BABY THAT'S HOW CLOSE WE ARE RIGHT HERE WITH YOU IS WHERE MY LIFE IS COME TOGETHER AND WHERE LOVE HAS FILLED MY HEART YOU KNOW I GO ANYWHERE AS LONG AS I HAVE YOU TO CARE. ALL I HAVE IS ALL I NEED AND ALL COMES DOWN TO YOU AND ME. HOW FAR AWAY THIS WORLD BECOMES IN THE HARBOR OF EACH OTHER'S ARMS STATES THE SUN DON'T SETTLE FOR THE PARODY THAT WONDERFUL SONG BY PAUL OVERSTREET. ALL THE LOVE THAT A MAN COULD ONE OF YOU WAITING FOR ME AT HOME, SO IT IS IN THIS ECSTATIC EXCLUSIVE CONSTANT COMMITMENT THAT WE FIND THE PRESERVATION AGAINST THE INROADS OF PROMISCUITY AND WRAP IT UP BY POINTING OUT TO YOU WHAT THE BIBLE POINTS OUT, NAMELY THAT THE BIBLE ALWAYS TACKLES THE ISSUES OF LIFE FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE END. VERSE 21 A MAN'S WAYS ARE IN FULL VIEW OF THE LORD. HE EXAMINES ALL HIS PATHS. THAT'S WHY WE HAVE TO CONSIDER ALL OF THESE ISSUES. ALL OF THESE PRACTICAL ISSUES THAT WERE CALLED TO ABOUT ACROSS THE STREET IN LIGHT OF THE FIGHT THAT THERE IS A JUDGMENT DAY COMING WHEN WE WILL STAND BEFORE GOD AND GIVE AN ACCOUNT, SO THE BIBLE AS WELL. THE PROPHET AMANDA BEGINS, THE WORLD LOSES HIS OWN SOUL, MAKING THE POINT. WHO CARES IF YOU'RE A BIG BUSINESSMAN. IF YOU HAVEN'T TAKEN CARE OF THE ISSUE OF YOUR ETERNITY WAS THE BENEFIT OF ENJOYING ALL THIS SQUANDERING OF YOUR RESOURCES NOW. IF, ON THE DAY OF JUDGMENT YOU WILL BE CALLED TO ACCOUNT FOR IT. IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE APART FROM BEING A TOTAL VIOLATION OF GOD'S COMMAND. AND SINCE THE BIBLE SPEAKS SO CLEARLY ABOUT THE EXAMINATION OF OUR PATHS AND THE EXAMINATION THAT WE WILL ONE DAY FACE SUMMERS AND WARM I SUPPOSED TO DO WELL IS ANOTHER WHOLE SERMON IN THIS AND I CAN GIVE IT TO YOU BUT I'LL GIVE YOU THE OUTLINE NUMBER ONE PRACTICE THE PRESENCE OF GOD PRACTICE THE PRESENCE OF GOD.

REMIND YOURSELF EVERY DAY YOU GET UP AND EVERYWHERE YOU GO.

I AM IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD.

THERE IS NO PLACE THAT I CAN GO WHEN I SIT DOWN WHEN I STAND UP WHEN I GET ON A PLANE WHEN I GO IN A HOTEL ROOM NO MATTER WHERE I GO. I LIVE IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD.

WE NEED TO REMIND OURSELVES OF THAT EVERY DAY AS TEENAGERS WHILE MY PARENTS ARE NOT HERE. THEY WENT AWAY FOR THE WEEKEND.

WHO CARES, YOU'RE IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD PRACTICE THE PRESENCE OF GOD. MEMORIZE THE WORD OF GOD. I WILL A YOUNG MAN KEEP HIS WAY PURE BY TAKING HEED. ACCORDING TO THE WORD THIRDLY STICK WITH THE PEOPLE OF GOD.

DON'T ISOLATE YOURSELF ISOLATIONIST DANGER. MAKE SURE THAT YOU MADE A COMMITMENT TO BE AMONGST THE PEOPLE OF GOD. WHOEVER THEY ARE, WHEREVER THE ART IS LOVELY BELIEVE THE BIBLE AND LOVE CHRIST AND GO AHEAD AND HAVE A WONDERFUL TIME AND FINALLY ACCEPT THE FORGIVENESS OF GOD EXCEPT THE FORGIVENESS OF GOD. THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE IN ITS UNDERSTANDABLE THAT THERE WOULD BE FOR WHOM A MESSAGE LIKE THIS THIS MORNING IS PRETTY DEVASTATING BECAUSE IT RATTLES AROUND IN THE DUSTBIN OF SINS THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN FORGIVEN.

SOME OF US ARE PERHAPS FIDDLING AROUND WITH. I HAVEN'T EVEN MENTIONED THE THRESHOLDS OVER THE INTERNET AND ALL OF THAT STUFF BE SURPRISING IN A CONGREGATION. THIS THIS MORNING. IF THERE WEREN'T PEOPLE ARE HOOKED INTO ALL OF THAT AND YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE AND GOD KNOWS WHO YOU ARE BECAUSE EVERYTHING YOU DO AND EVERYTHING I DO IS DONE BEFORE HIS SEARCHING GAZE TO THE PERSON WHO SAYS I'M IN A ROYAL HASH OF THIS AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO. LISTEN, EVEN ADULTERY IS WRONG, AS IT IS NOT THE UNFORGIVABLE SIN. YOU'RE NOT TRAPPED FATALISTIC ME IN THE CLUTCHES OF SIN.

GOD'S KINDNESS POINTS EACH ONE OF US TO THE DOOR MARKED REPENTANCE TO ENTER THROUGH THE DOORS TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT I'M A SINNER THAT SIN IS AN OFFENSE AGAINST GOD. IT'S AN OFFENSE TO GOD AND IN THE FACE OF GOD. I HAVE NO LEGITIMATE RIGHTS TO BE LET OFF. THE ONLY BASIS ON WHICH I CAN APPEAL IS ON THE BASIS OF HIS MERCY IS UNFAILING LOVE IS GREAT COMPASSION AND WHERE IS ALL THAT MERCY AND UNFAILING LOVE AND GREAT COMPASSION BE FOUND IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, WHO BY HIS DEATH ON THE CROSS SILENCED THE CONDEMNATION OF THE LAW BY PAYING THE WAGES DEMANDED IN CLEARING THE WAY FOR THE REPENTANT SINNER TO BE FREED FROM A WHOLE DAY SO THAT WE CAN SAY IN ROMANS ONE THERE IS NOW THEREFORE NO CONDEMNATION TO THEM THAT ARE IN CHRIST JESUS. IT WAS THIS TRUTH. WHEN I GRIPPED AG SPAFFORD THAT HE WROTE DOWN AND IS HIM WAS NOT WHEN PEACE LIKE A RIVER AT THE END OF MY WAY AND SORROWS LIKE SEA BILLOWS ROLL. I NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT THIS UNTIL I THIS MORNING WAS PREACHING AND WITH THIS. I'M GOING TO STOP. REMEMBER SPAFFORD AND HIS FRIEND. HE LOST HIS SON AND THEN HIS FAMILY WERE GOING TO THE UNITED KINGDOM THEY WERE GOING DEAR LE HAVRE IN FRANCE THE ATLANTIC CROSSING WAS TO GO TO LE HAVRE, HIS WIFE AND CHERYL AND GIRLS FOR DAUGHTER SET OFF AHEAD OF HE STAYED BACK BECAUSE OF THE CHICAGO FIRE. HE WAS THEN TO FOLLOW THE SHIP SUNK AND THE TELEGRAM HE RECEIVED FROM HIS WIFE SAID SAVED ALONE. HE RECOGNIZES THAT HIS FOUR DAUGHTERS HAVE BEEN DROWNED IN THE ATLANTIC.

HIS WIFE NOW IS ON THE FAR SIDE OF THE ATLANTIC. HE MUST GO TO WORK. HE BOARDS A SHIP HE GETS ON THE SHIP AND OUT OF RESPECT. THEY HOLD A SERVICE AT THE POINT OF THE ATLANTIC WHERE THEY HAD IDENTIFIED THE SHIP.

HAVING GONE DOWN, AND IN THE CONTEXT OF THAT HE RIGHTS WHEN PEACE LIKE A RIVER, ATTENDED MY WAY AND SORROWS LIKE SEA BILLOWS ROLL WHATEVER MY LOT YOU HAVE CAUSED ME TO KNOW IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL. WE UNDERSTAND IN THE THROES OF EVERYTHING ELSE. BUT HOW IN THE WORLD DOES HE GET THIS VERSE AND IT MY SIN ALL THE BLINKS OF THIS GLORIOUS MY SIN NOT IN PART BUT THE WHOLE IS NAILED TO HIS CROSS AND I BEAR IT NO MORE. BLESS THE LORD BLESS THE LORD, O MY SOUL IS A SPAFFORD THAT IN THE MIDDLE OF A HIM ABOUT YOUR DAUGHTERS DROWNING IN THE OCEAN OR BECAUSE HE WOULD HAVE SAID THE REALLY SIGNIFICANT WONDER TO ME IS THIS NOT THAT I HAVE LOST MY LOVED ONES AND ALL THE PAIN THAT IS REPRESENTED IN THAT THE GREAT WONDER TO ME IS THAT AS THE OCEAN HAS SWALLOWED UP MY DAUGHTERS SO LET'S SEE GOD'S FORGIVENESS HAS SWALLOWED UP ALL OF MY SIN AND I AM CLEAN BEFORE GOD. TODAY, THERE IS NO RECORD THAT HE HOLDS AGAINST ME USING AND THAT MY FRIENDS IS THE GREAT THING NOT THE ISSUE OF OUR PHYSICAL STRENGTH NOR THE ISSUE ABOUT INTELLECTUAL PROWESS, NOT THE ISSUE OF OUR BUSINESS ACUMEN OF YOU COME BEFORE THE LAW OF GOD, AND IT IS CONFRONTED YOU AND SHOWING YOU THAT YOU HAVE EVERY OCCASION. FAR SIDE'S THEN WOULD YOU LOOK AWAY TO THE CROSS, AND FIND OUT THAT IN JESUS THERE IS EVERY REASON TO REJOICE. AND THAT'S WHY WE TEACH OUR CHILDREN, WHY, WHY DOES THE OCEAN IN HIGH AS THE HEAVENS ABOVE AND BE DEEP IS THE DEEPEST SEA IS MY SAVIOR'S LOVE FOR I KNOW SO UNWORTHY STILL ON MY CHILD OF HIS CARE FOR HIS WORD TEACHES ME THAT HIS LOVE REACHES ME EVERYWHERE. THEREFORE, YOU CAN STEP OUT. NO CONDEMNATION.

NOW I DREAD JESUS AND ALL IN HIM IS MINE ALIVE IN HIM MY LIVING HEAD AND CLOSED IN RIGHTEOUSNESS. THE VINE THEREFORE BOLD.

I APPROACH THE ETERNAL THRONE ON THE BASIS OF WHAT ON THE BASIS OF THE WORK OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. THAT IS FORGIVENESS.

MY DEAR FRIENDS AND NOBODY ELSE AND EVERY OTHER OFFER IS A FUTILITY AND IS A CROCK.

DO YOU HEAR GOD'S WORD TO YOU TODAY CAN ASK YOUR YOUR WISE BOY YOUR WISE SON YOUR WISE DAUGHTER, YOU FOOLISH CHILD A WISE SON MAKES HIS MOM HAPPY FOOLISH SON ROTS HER BONES. A WISE DAUGHTER REJOICES, THE FAMILY DINING TABLE FOOLISH DAUGHTER FINDS HER PARENTS LIVING IN TEARS OUR WORLD. YOU SEE, UNDER THE DISGUISE OF WISDOM, SAYS PAUL TO THE ROMANS HAS BECOME FOOLISH EXCHANGE THE GLORY OF GOD IN ALL OF THIS TRUTH IN ALL OF HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS.

FOR A BUNCH OF MUMBO-JUMBO ABOUT BEASTS AND THINGS WITH TALES, THE CREATION OF FUNNY LITTLE ITEMS ONE FINAL ILLUSTRATION ON THROUGH THOSE OF YOU GOING TO SCOTLAND MAY HAVE GONE TO OPEN A NICE LITTLE PLACE RANGE LIKE CRAZY, THOUGH THERE NEARLY ALL THE TIME IS WHY THE VEGETATION IS SO GREEN BUT YOU GO TO OPEN ON THE WEST OF SCOTLAND IS IMPOSSIBLE TO GO IN THERE EITHER BY BOAT OR BY CAR WITHOUT BEING IMMEDIATELY STRUCK BY A REMARKABLE BUILDING WHICH OVERLOOKS THE BAY ITS COLISEUM LIKE IN ITS CONSTRUCTION. AND IF YOU ARRIVE IN THE EVENING, YOU DISCOVER THAT IT IS FLOODLIT AND IT REALLY LOOKS PRETTY ATTRACTIVE. IT'S QUITE UNUSUAL AND SPECTACULAR, BUT YOU SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR A DISAPPOINTMENT IF YOU DECIDE TO TRACK UP TO IT DURING THE DAY BECAUSE YOU CHECK ONTO IT IN DAYLIGHT, YOU WILL DISCOVER THAT THE BUILDING ALTHOUGH IT IS WONDERFULLY SYMMETRICAL AND IS MANY WINDOWS IN ITS STRUCTURE. THE BUILDING IS A COMPLETE SHELL NOTE THERE'S NO GLASS IN THE WINDOWS. THERE'S NO INTERIOR STRUCTURE IT IS AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN SIMPLY CIRCULAR WALL.

THIS EDIFICE IS BEEN THERE FOR OVER A CENTURY NOW IN SCOTLAND.

IT IS KNOWN BY ALL WHO VISITED BY THE NAME OF THE MAN WHO CONSTRUCTED A MAN BY THE NAME OF MCCAIG. IT IS KNOWN AS MCCAIG'S FOLLY.

IT IS A FOLLY OF FOOLISHNESS IS ONE OF MANY 18TH AND 19TH CENTURY STRUCTURES WHICH YOU WILL COME UPON AS YOU VISIT THE UNITED KINGDOM AND ALSO VISIT FRANCE THERE ALWAYS IMPRESSIVE THAT ALL WAS EXPRESSIVE OF CLASSICAL OR GOTHIC ARCHITECTURE. THEY HAVE ONE THING IN COMMON THEY ARE CONSTRUCTED TO IMPRESS, BUT THEY SERVE ABSOLUTELY NO USEFUL FUNCTION. THEY ARE EMPTY AND THEY ARE USELESS. WHAT ABOUT YOUR MARRIAGE THIS MORNING SIR MME. CONSTRUCTED IT TO IMPRESS HEAVILY LOOKS OKAY FROM A DISTANCE WITH THE RIGHT KIND OF LIGHTING IN THE EVENING, BUT IN THE INSIGHT SAUL EMPTINESS OF SADNESS SO PAY NO TAPESTRY, NO WINDOWS, NO NOTHING. GOD SAYS ALL MY WAYS ARE PERFECT ALL MY PATHS OF PEACE AND VALUE TO EMBRACE GOD'S WAY IS THE ONLY WAY TO SPRAY ON OUR FATHER WE PRAY THIS MORNING THAT YOUR WORD MAY TAKE ROOT IN OUR HEARTS AND MINDS. THAT IS, YOUNG PEOPLE, LOOKING OUT OVER THE HORIZON OF LIFE, YOU WILL HELP US TO MAKE WISE CHOICES THAT WE MAY BECOME THESE CHILDREN TO OUR PARENTS ABOUT WHICH PROVERB SPEAKS AT THOSE OF US WHO BEEN FOOLING AROUND ON THE FRINGES OF THINGS MAY STAY AWAY FROM THE DOOR MAY RUN WHATEVER RUNNING MEANS TURNING OFF THE COMPUTER THROWING AWAY THE MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION CHANGE IN MY JOB RELOCATING MY SEAT, WHATEVER IT MAY BE.

The lessons express God's revelation instead of the opinions of individuals. So to complement this study were recommending a book titled living well. You may have heard me mention this book during the past week book living well expounds on the truths found in Proverbs it organizes more than 40 topics into categories things like people skills, dollars and cents. The seduction of the simpleton and there are chapters that warn against the dangers of anger or pride.
