Everyone proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord; Though they join forces, none will go unpunished. Proverbs 16:5 New King James Version

That talent is a gift from Jehovah for you to use for good For you to take the credit for it is an abomination unto the giver of that gift.

What God gives freely, He can and will take back freely. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Help me keep a humble and grateful heart which to daily thank you and give You the credit. I humbly request this in the name of the most humble King Christ Jesus Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
