Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:18 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
How much credit do you give unto Jehovah for the blessing He has bestowed upon you?
So say you are really good at playing a musical instrument and someone compliments you on it. Do you become puffed up with pride or do you give all glory unto Christ? If you do the latter it is a great opportunity to share Jesus with others.
What Jehovah has blessed you with, he can just as easily take away from you in the blink of an eye. So say you are a star athlete with an ego problem. Then one day you feel weak and go to a doctor. After an examination he or she informs you that you have the beginning of MS. Where is your strength then?
Pride is taking credit for the gifts Jehovah has given us. Joseph: Anthony- Green Prayer:
May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah
