TOPIC: PEOPLE WHO ROB PARENTS
TEXT: PROVERBS 28:22-28
MEMORY VERSE: “Whoso robbeth his father or his mother, and saith, It is no transgression; the same is the companion of a destroyer” (PROVERBS 28:24).
There are youths who take it for granted that what belongs to their parents automatically belongs to them. As such, they steal money that belongs to their parents, commandeer some valuables and swindle their parents.
Some take their family's properties and auction them to satisfy some unprofitable desires. Such youths are called destroyers by God. They are robbers. Robbery is a sin whether against individuals, groups of people, church or parents.
If you have stolen from your parents or guardians, either subtly or by force, you have committed sin and you are guilty. Repent, confess your sins and make necessary restitutions. Failure to do so brings you under the fiery judgment of God. Be careful not to grieve your parents because obedience gives long life. God, our heavenly Father demands in His Word that believers are to give tithes and offerings.
Those who fail to do so are robbing Him. Defaulters bring themselves under the curse of the Lord. "Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation." Obedience is the only way out.
QUOTE: Robbery is a sin.
CHALLENGE: No robber will enter the kingdom of God.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, help me to keep away from every form of sin.
