A critical spirit is like poison ivy ~ it only takes a little contact to spread its poison.
Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly. Their teaching will
spread like gangrene.

How can one develop a proper attitude toward God? First, our attitude toward God must be based on our conviction that “He is,” and that “He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6). This kind of faith will produce a good attitude of godly fear, and “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge” (Proverbs 1:7). Second, God is absolutely holy, absolutely perfect, and absolutely wise. He is grieved by evil. He loves man and wants us to love and obey Him. All of this should motivate us to want to be true to Him all the days of our life. Our attitude toward God will then be such as expressed by the heavenly hosts: “Worthy are thou, our Lord and our God, to receive the glory and the honor and the power: for thou didst create all things, and because of thy will they were, and were created,” (Revelation 4:11).
The churches of Christ greet you.
A Land Being Destroyed By Lack of Knowledge
As the book of Judges closes, the future of Israel is dismal. Centuries before, the Jews had entered a land which flowed with milk and honey. Under the leadership of Joshua, they had conquered thirty-one kingdoms (Joshua 12:24). They could have had more if they had conquered the nations on their southern and northern borders. The key to a successful future is knowledge of the past.
God had blessed them. “The Lord gave to Israel all the land of which He had sworn to give to their fathers, and they took possession of it and dwelt in it” (Joshua 21:43). Two verses later, the Holy Spirit says, “Not a word failed of any good thing which the lord had spoken to the house of Israel. All came to pass.” The future outlook was glorious.
As you read the book of Judges, you cannot fail to see how dismal the situation had become. How had all of this come about? The answer to that question might help us understand what is happening in our land right before our eyes!
The generation which entered the Promised Land was so different from the preceding one. Their fathers had left Egypt and, even before crossing the Red Sea, they murmured, failing to remember what God had just done. They crossed the Red Sea and, before arriving at Mt. Sinai, complained about the lack of water and food. He gave them water out of the rock and over 12,000 days of free food from heaven. They then complained for the next forty years until the death of Moses.
That second generation was so much better. They knew God and obeyed Him. From the time they entered Canaan, they worshiped him. The Bible describes it this way, “So the people served the Lord all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders who outlived Joshua…another generation arose after them who did not know the Lord nor His work” (Judges 1:7-10).
How did they leave God? They failed to listen to Moses. “The words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them to your children…“ (Deut. 6:7). The situation came about because they failed to teach their children!
The very same thing is happening in America. Our fathers knew the Bible. They knew about seventy-one men in the Bible whose thumbs and big toes were cut off; the dead man who, as he was being quickly buried, came alive again; the king whose skull was crushed by a stone thrown at him by a woman; fields of grain which were burned by foxes; the woman on the moon; the floating iron axe head; the man who killed a lion when it was snowing. They taught us about God and what He has done. What have we done? Look at the list above. Do your children know these things? Do you? Think!
