Fellowship Monrovia 7/6/14

Anatomy of a Fool
1. A fool does not listen. (Proverbs)
2. A fool does not tell himself no. (Ecc 2)
3. A fool a fool says in his *heart* there is no God (Psalm 14)

A GOOD thing can become a BAD thing if it becomes an ULTIMATE thing.

-when your pursue the longings of your flesh, you say in your heart there is no God!
-it doesn’t matter what your mouth is saying, in your heart you say there is no God.
-listen not to understand, but for compassion. Not to understand, but to give that other person attention.
-a fool only worries about getting his point across, he cannot be corrected.
-a fool bows down to his urges and is led by his urges rather than the Holy Spirit

****Fear of God is the beginning of wisdom, then the surrendering of my heart is the end of my foolishness.
