Beware Lest We Fall

Let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall. — 1 Corinthians 10:12 

Paul drew a somber lesson from Old Testament history.

The people Moses led from slavery in Egypt toward freedom in the Promised Land kept turning their backs on God who had delivered them.

Idolatry, immorality, and grumbling were among the things that brought them down.

Paul pointed to their collapse as an example to us.

Let us beware lest we fall from our "steadfastness" in faith and practice.
