Complaining - Numbers 11:1

Re: Proverbs 6:16-19

    The medieval church period spanned about a thousand years — from the 5th century to the 16th. During that time, the church developed a list of seven deadly sins: pride, anger, envy, impurity, gluttony, slothfulness, and greed. In today's reading, we see an even more ancient list of what God considered "deadly" sins—" a proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren" (vv. 18-19). A great strategy for dealing with potential sin is to yield to God and to flee from temptation before it can entice us into transgression (1 Corinthians 10:13; James 1:14-15). {INSIGHT, Our Daily Bread, 11/18/2012}

 Lusts of the flesh (Romans 13:13-14):

    Let us behave properly as in the day, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual promiscuity and sensuality, not in strife and jealousy. 14But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts.

1 Corinthians 6:9, 10

    Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
