We(Stevo’s Portal Team) gladly inform you about OPEN HEAVENS FOR TEENS TUESDAY 1ST AUGUST 2023 – MAKING FUN OF PEOPLE?
Open Heavens for Teens daily devotional by Pastor Adeboye is here. The RCCG Open Heavens For Teen is published to transform & connect teens to Christ. Read and share with someone.
The Topic of Teenagers Open Heavens for Tuesday 1 St August 2023 Is “Making Fun of People?”
Read: 2 Kings 2:23-25
And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head.
And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.
And he went from thence to mount Carmel, and from thence he returned to Samaria.
Memorise: Proverbs 21:23
Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.
Today’s Bible text sounds a great warning to young people against making unguarded comments about other people or their looks.
At that time in Israel, Elijah was one of the most popular prophets, so we know that these children knew him.
However, they threw caution to the wind and made fun of his bald head.
In response, the man of God cursed them, and they became food for the two bears.
Making fun of people’s looks, failures, or character is a sign of immaturity and foolishness.
A jester forgets that God is the Creator of all and laughing at His creation is a direct insult to Him.
Young people need to be careful not to fall into a snare by the words of their mouths or what they post on social media. Some of them go to the extent of abusing or cursing genuine men of God online.
Some young people laugh at the grammatical blunders of their pastor or teacher and, in the process, miss out on God’s blessings for them in that encounter.
I pray that you will not destroy your future with carelessness in Jesus’ name.

OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 1 AUGUST 2023 HYMN
HYMN 21 – I WANT TO BE LIKE JESUS
1. I want to be like Jesus,
So lowly and so meek;
For no one mark’d an angry word,
That ever heard Him speak,
2. I want to be like Jesus,
So frequently in prayer;
Alone upon the mountain top,
He met his Father there.
3. I want to be like Jesus,
I never, never find
That He, though persecuted was
To anyone unkind.
4. I want to be like Jesus,
Engaged in doing good;
So that of me it may be said
“He hath done what he could.”
5. I want to be like Jesus,
Who sweetly said to all,
“Let little children come to Me;”
I would obey the call.
6. But oh I’m not like Jesus,
As anyone may see;
O gentle Saviour, send Thy grace,
And make me like to Thee
