  • Don’t Settle for Soup
  • I preached a youth service at Shiloh last night. I worked hard to prepare myself. An there was something specific on my heart to say. I preached a message entitled “Don’t Settle for Soup” from Genesis 25:29-34.

    Here is the sermon skeleton:

    Title: “Don’t Settle for Soup”

    Text: Genesis 25:29-34

    Theme: Do not negotiate the spiritual for the physical.

    Point: Don’t settle for soup.

    Outline: Here are three reasons why you should not settle for soup.

    I. It costs to much. (That bowl of soup was not worth Esau’s birthright.)

    II. You are not as hungry as you think you are. (Esau was not about to die!)

    A. You just need self-control.

    B. You just need patience.

    C. You just need wisdom.

    III. It doesn’t really satisfy. (A few hours later, Esau was hungry all over again.)
