Sunday School,  January 1, 2017

Matthew 7 is the last part of the Sermon on the Mount given by Jesus. In verses 1 - 12, Jesus used three parabolic phrases as comparatives to teach on three different subjects.In verses 1 - 5, He gave instruction concerning judging others and used the comparison of the mote and the beam. In verse 6, He gave instruction on witnessing and used the comparison of the dogs, pearls and swine. In our study today, Jesus provides instruction on the subject of prayer in verses 7-12 and used a comparison between bread and a stone and fish and a serpent. All three instructions related to the first lesson concerning judging others.
