LIVING TO OUR POTENTIAL AS GOD'S CHILDREN -- JOSHUA 17:7-18
Jan 19, 2020

As parents, we want our children to "live up to their potential." We want them to "be all (the good) they can be." Thus, we push and encourage them in their studies, sports, etc. God wants His children to "be all they can be" for Him. Unfortunately, most of us do not live up to our potential as children/servants of God. In reality, we are 3 persons -- the person we are,
the person we could be for evil, and the person we could be for God. Why do we not live up to our potential for God? What is the problem? The tribe of Manasseh pictures those who fail to maximize their lives and reveals at least 3 reasons we fail.

  I.THE PROBLEM OF PARTIAL POSSESSIONS -- VS. 12.
 II.THE TRAGEDY OF PARALYZING PRIDE -- VS. 14.
III.THE PROBLEM OF PERVERTED PRIORITIES - VS. 17.
