Good morning, it is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto His name. Rejoice in the LORD, you who are righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of His holiness, Amen. Today we learn something about putting away the pride in our lives. Please let us read these verses from the KJV Bible.
“The LORD will destroy the house of the proud: but he will establish the border of the widow.” – Proverbs 15:25
“By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honour, and life.” – Proverbs 22:4
“A man’s pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.” – Proverbs 29:23
“Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.” – 1 Corinthians 10:12
The Lord actually hates pride. Being proud is of no benefit to our Christian life, but rather it destroys our relationship with the Lord and also with the saints. Sometimes, even in our Christian life we put up with this act of pride. We see ourselves more superior than the other saints just because they are poor both either in the spirit or financial-wise.
The second verse tells us that it is rather in humility that we find riches and honour and life. The more we take pride in ourselves, the more we lose the blessings from the Lord. The life of our Lord should serve as a testimony to us;He was humble even to the point of death. I pray we may learn more of the humble and simple life of our Lord Jesus. May God bless us all. Amen.
Please share a word with the world.
