-Pride is to make yourself better than others and higher than others.
James 4:6-8 says,
“But he gives more GRACE. Therefore he says, God RESISTS the PROUD, but gives GRACE unto the HUMBLE.
SUBMIT yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Draw near to God, and HE will DRAW NEAR to you…”
Then 1 Peter 5:5-6 tells us,
Likewise, you younger, SUBMIT yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be SUBJECT one to another, and be clothed with HUMILITY: for God resists the PROUD, and gives GRACE to the HUMBLE.
HUMBLE yourselves therefore UNDER the MIGHTY HAND of God, that he may EXALT you in due time:
-Whosoever God exalts is still humble, but whosoever exalts himself is still proud.
+++Let the Word of God be the standard for your life.
God Sees and Rewards our Good Works
And whatsoever all of you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men.
For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which all of you have showed toward his Name…
+God rewards us for the works we do in His Name and for His Glory.
+Let us not allow ourselves, others or that dumb devil to discourage our good works for the Lord.
+Do not allow anyone to use you or take advantage of you while you doing the Lord’s good works. Amen!
+In Mark 10:28-31 Jesus said He will give back to us 100% increased on the return for our good works.
+Even though the Lord rewards us for our good works, let us not do good works for the rewards but out of a heart of love for our Lord Jesus Christ.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!
