- International Lefthanders Day

TOPIC - HOPHNI AND PHINEHAS (II)

Read 1 Samuel 2:15-25

MEMORISE:
Flee all youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart (2 Timothy 2:22)


EXPOSITION
The sins of Hophni and Phinehas were our point of call yesterday. Those guys were too terrible and silly. They misfired so unexpectedly. God Himself accused them of being seriously corrupt. However, it didn't end there.
From 1 Sam. 2:15,17, we see that apart from starting a contrary practice from what the law says, Hophni and Phinehas used force on people. They were supposed to be respectful, peaceable and honourable, but they were contrary. Your attitude speaks volume of who you are, not what you say you are. The young men's atrocities were so grievous. Their sins directly affected God.

Statistics show that 80% of people between the ages of 13 and 40 are mostly vulnerable to vices, like rape, drunkenness, armed robbery, cultism, cannibalism, gangsterism, gambling, etc. No thanks to the evil effects of social media. The rate at which youths are dropping out of school nowadays is so alarming, the results of which are regret and frustration. A good child brings happiness to his or her parents. You can't make your parents sad and expect your own children to make you happy. Therefore, there is need for you to be malleable.

Parents, give your children the Word of God and encourage them to comply with it. Show them good and godly example. The Bible testifies of Louis and Eunice, how their faith imparted Timothy. One of the best ways to wade off the devil from your children is to personally lead them to the Cross from childhood, and allow the Word of God to take its course in their lives (Psa. 119:9; 2 Tim. 3:15-17). Dare not to be negligent with your child's upbringing.

PRAYER POINTS
1. The devil will never have upper hand over my home, in Jesus' name.
2. Lord, help parents to leave good and godly legacies behind for their children.
3. O Lord, help the Church to have developmental programmes for our children, teens and youths, in Jesus' name.

EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: Psalms 25:11 - 30:5; Romans 6:5 - 7:3
