PRIDE BEFORE THE FALL

Be very careful who you step on, spit on, or lie on to get to the top, because you will pass them on the way down. One supervisor once told me that, a person must be careful of the foot they step on, because it might be connected to the buttocks they are kissing. Both  statements are true, and Biblically connected. Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honor is humility (Proverbs 18:12; Psalm 10 :2). Isn’t it amazing that when a person has no education, no job, nothing of value to their name, they can be so humble, kind, meek and compassionate, with  all the good attributes that a person should portray, but as soon as they get that degree, job, house, car or some money to their name they are a changed person, they develop the Jekyll and Hyde personality, and totally forget who they were and where they are coming from.

We should never allow the pride of our hearts to deceive us, because it will bring us down (Jeremiah 49:16); one thing I want you to understand, If God won’t get the glory then you don’t have a story. However if we give God the glory, then it’s automatically a success story, we can do nothing without God, He owns and controls everything (Proverbs 28:25-26); lets not allow the fortunes of this world to change our concept of who we are and whose we are. Don’t get high-minded or arrogant when we get to the top, and putting all our hopes and trust in uncertain riches (1 Timothy 6:17-19). The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil, and the more you crave it, the further you get from God, which in turn brings sorrows into your life. You must remember that, we did not bring anything in this world and we definitely can’t take it with us; another thing you must realize, is that you can’t use money to buy your way into heaven, or out of hell; it does not buy you eternal life, or keep you from death, so why gain the world, and lose your soul. Godliness with contentment is great gain( 1 Timothy 6:6-12), so why not seek God, and let Him take care of you.
