Moral and spiritual parasites!

(Frederick Marsh)

There are moral and spiritual parasites which throttle, kill, injure, or retard the growth of the spiritual life!

1. The parasite of sloth will hinder the grace of watchfulness–as it did the five virgins. Matthew 25:5

2. The parasite of worldliness will kill the grace of devotion–as it did in Demas. 2 Timothy 4:10

3. The parasite of pride will devastate the grace of humility–as it did with the Devil. 1 Timothy 3:6

4. The parasite of unbelief will keep down the grace of faith–as is seen in the children of Israel. Hebrews 3:17-19

5. The parasite of self-importance will kill the grace of self-denial–as is stated of Diotrephes. 3 John 9

6. The parasite of avarice will stifle the grace of reality–as is evidenced in Achan. Joshua 7:21

7. The parasite of covetousness will strangle the grace of generosity–as is manifest in Balaam. 2 Peter 2:15
