Christian Bible Lesson 105: Do Not Brag

It is important that you not only do good deeds but also, that you act for the right reasons.  Contributing to people in need to make yourself look good is not righteous.  Making sure you benefit from helping other people by bragging in front of your friends is not the way to help people.

Christian Bible Lesson 101: Forgive others and you will be forgiven

It is important to forgive those who wronged you.  We all make mistakes and do things that affect other people.  Sometimes people are not aware of the pain they cause others until it is too late to change their behavior.  Other times they deliberately hurt people. 

Christian Bible Lesson 99: Power of your tongue

The tongue has a lot of power.  What you say is important, but also how you say it is important.  As the Bible Verses above state, words have tremendous power.  You can help people and promote good, and you can also promote evil through the words you speak and how you speak them. 

Christian Bible Lesson 98: Do not focus on wealth

If gaining wealth is your primary objective, you may spend the majority of your time pursuing riches and miss the benefits of life.  We must be careful not to focus too much energy on working to earn money and miss opportunities to improve our lives by experiencing the companionship of other people.  This does not mean that you don’t work to support your family, it means that you have other priorities as well.

Christian Bible Lesson 97: Be Humble

The word “humble” appears eighty-one times in the Bible.  It is important to learn as early in life as possible that taking personal credit for your actions is not in your best interest.  As you can see in the Bible verses above, you do not need to take credit, pay attention to other people and you will be rewarded in so many other ways. 

Christian Bible Lesson 96:  Self-Discipline

It is important to learn the value of thinking about actions prior to doing what feels good at the time. Many times, doing what satisfies you immediately, causes serious consequences later. This is especially true when it comes to completing tasks that you wish to avoid. Sometimes it seems that if you skip a specific task, it will not affect you. Then after time has passed, you face other consequences because you did not have the discipline to make the effort to finish your work.

Christian Bible Lesson 95:  Always Be Honest

There are times when it seems inconvenient to be completely truthful. This is especially the case when the truth causes pain to a loved one. As many Bible verses tell us, no matter how secret a truth may be, there is always a chance that the details will be revealed. In almost all cases, the pain when the truth is revealed is much stronger than if the truth were revealed initially.
