TITLE: Tearing Down
TEXT: Joshua 6:20-21
PROPOSITION: Progress requires that we tear down some walls.
KEY WORD: Walls
Old building is torn down - making room for new building
Progress requires that we tear down some walls.
President Reagan in Berlin – to Gorbachev – “Tear down this wall.”
There are some walls in our lives that need to come down.
Friendships, relatives, marriages lost by this.
ANSWER - Listen, talk, seek to understand each other.
Difference of Opinion.
We will differ - different past leads to different opinions
NEVER let opinions divide or separate us.
Envy - desire what another has and hate them for it
Jealousy - protect what you have and hate them for wanting it
Fear = negative motivator - hold back, keep from action
Fear all the wrong places - others, public opinion, world
Faith in God’s promises will urge us to live right.
1 Pet. 4:8 Love shall cover the multitude of sins
Solve many problems that divide
Love covers a multitude of sins
Hell highway = Good intentions
