It is A Large Family

Take care of SELF.  This is the worst enemy we have to deal with:  self-will,  self-wisdom,  self-righteousness,  self-seeking, self-dependence, self-boasting!

It is a large family! I cannot reckon up all the branches, but they are all closely related to Satan they are all sworn enemies to our peace.

If we lie low, then the Lord will raise us up. But if we will be something, then His arm will surely pull us down.

[John Newton]

2 Timothy 3:1-2 ... This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

Ephesians 4:22 ... That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;

Luke 9:23 ... And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.❤
