The Scriptures should challenge our culture.
  • Won’t put up with sound doctrine (v. 3a)
  • Listen for what they want to hear (v. 3b)
  • Find teachers who won’t challenge (v. 3c)

Practical Tips
  • Read SLOWLY and multiple times
    • Engage your mind and heart
    • Think about what the text is really saying
  • Practice CONFESSION
    • In what ways am I not living out the text?
    • Where do I need God to transform me?
  • “Search me, O LORD, and know my heart,

Test me, and know my anxious thoughts,

See if there is any offensive way in me,

And lead me in the way everlasting.”

PSALM 139:23-24
