It is Not Fitting

LOOKING TO HEAVEN

As snow in summer and rain in harvest, so honor is not fitting for a fool. Proverbs 26: 1 New King James Version

Being an old farmer boy I speak from experience when I say that snow in the summer or rain during the wheat harvest destroys the whole crop.

So too it is when honour is given to a fool. They take all the credit ignoring everyone else who helped in the accomplishment. Then, they get a big head and think they are better than everyone else. Have you ever listened to them in a conversation? They cannot say an entire sentence without saying “I did this.” “Or I did that.” They are egotistical bores. Just look at most professional athletes today.

Those with big heads have little hearts. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When an honour is given you before accepting it pray the Lord bless you with humility.

Humility is when you have confidence in the blessing Jehovah has given you so there is no need to brag.

And, do not forget to share the glory with those who helped you make the accomplishment, including Jehovah.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) bless me to always be humble and graceful like Your esteemed son Jesus Christ in whose name I sincerely ask. Amen.                                                                                             

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day.

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.
