Lessons Learned Too Late

1st Kings 13

The man of God began with courage and devotion to God, but very sadly ended in tragedy.

Lessons to be learned:

  1. Religious people don’t always tell the truth.
  2. Sincerity alone does not make things right.
  3. Earlier obedience will not cover later disobedience.
  4. God means what He says.

The man of God learned these lessons too late to do him any good.

  • Will we avoid making the same mistake he did?
