The Consequences of Being Overrighteous & Overreligious...

Perhaps this is one of the most important messages I have shared in my past 26 years of ministry-- perhaps also one of the messages that I have learned and experienced in my life...

Ecclesiastes 7:16-18

16 Do not be overrighteous,

neither be overwise—

why destroy yourself?

17 Do not be overwicked,

and do not be a fool—

why die before your time?

18 It is good to grasp the one

and not let go of the other.

Whoever fears G-D will avoid all extremes.
