They trusted in their appearance, v15
They trusted in what God had given, v17-19.
They trusted their own judgment, v20-25.
They trusted their own pursuits, v26-29.
They trusted their present and future and not their past, v43.
They became’ like mother like daughter’ or ‘like father like son’, v44.
They did not become like God!
Let people first see God in us before they see a parent.
