We thank God for the grace of another week He has kept for the purpose of success in our various spheres of life. Amen. I pray that the success same be a testimony before the weekend in Jesus name. Amen.
We are going to study through another very important lesson this week "HUMILITY". Many today because of the little gift they have gotten and to some because of the little wealth which will eventually become snare if care is not taken have puffed up themselves to danger. I mean they created unnecessary attention to themselves and has led them to actual regret and had I known. I pray this will not be your portion in Jesus Christ name. Amen.
Some in his Proverb gave some insight to some of our attitudes and admonishes us to better our life.
"20 Have you seen a man who is quick with his tongue? There is more hope for a foolish man than for him. 21 If a servant is gently cared for from his early years, he will become a cause of sorrow in the end. 22 An angry man is the cause of fighting, and a man given to wrath does much wrong. 23 A man's pride will be the cause of his fall, but he who has a gentle spirit will get honour. 24 A man who takes part with a thief has hate for his soul; he is put under oath, but says nothing. 25 The fear of man is a cause of danger: but whoever puts his faith in the Lord will have a safe place on high." Proverbs 29:20-25 (BBE)
Pride leads to destruction of one's life actually but the man or woman operating in it will not get i t until the harm is done. When you do more of the talking while others only sit or stand to hear you make them see you as all in all and even when you need them help out they will not believe you are in true need. Those are people the Psalmist said they are quick with their tongues. So don't be too quick with your tongue it might be a danger for you.
Don't join in doing evil because it will not be well with evil doers. Jesus refers to the devil as the thief in gosple of John 10:10, with this when you conspire with the thief to defraud someone, receive bribe, take advantage of another or covert what is not your; you make a deal with the devil and there are not profit for you because you will actually pay for all. That is the reason the Psalmist said such hate their souls.
Brethren be full of yourself because that is pride which will deny you of divine Lifting rather be of the gentle Spirit I be humble and receive God HONOR to your life.
I pray from my heart for you this morning that the Lord will honor whatever you humbly do this day in Jesus name. Amen. Every spirit of pride, arrogance, anger, quick to talk and other elements of failure in your life will die and God will elevate you in Jesus name. Amen
Have a blissful week ahead of you in Christ Jesus name. Amen.
