What do you think? What's your answer?
I saw this title from one of my email devotionals then I quickly answered...
"Because they think they're too great."
Too great to be corrected. Too great to be rebuked. Too great to be disobeyed.
We all need humility.
Whether we have finished a Master's Degree or none at all. Honestly, I do not look at degrees. I even believe people who have not gotten any degrees when all I see in them is a genuine heart and humbling faith.
If we are to preach in a pulpit, YES we need authority in speech but we also need a humble heart.
Sometimes we forget what GOD taught us the first time we loved HIM. Humility.
Let's read this humbling parable of The Pharisee and the Tax Collector...
9To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everybody else, Jesus told this parable: 10"Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11The Pharisee stood up and prayed abouta]">[a] himself: 'God, I thank you that I am not like other men—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. 12I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.'
13"But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, 'God, have mercy on me, a sinner.'
14"I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted."
2 Corinthians 12:9
But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.
Let's be as humble as the tax collector and Paul.
Life is not about winning arguments but loving souls because GOD is pleased with real worship.
Make an impact. Make a difference. Make a ripple. Tip the scale. Be a blessing. Be different.
ALL THE GLORY BELONGS TO GOD ALONE!!!
GOD BLESS YOU ABUNDANTLY! GOD IS ALWAYS WITH YOU - NO MATTER WHAT!
ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD!!!
When you feel GOD's love, OVERFLOW!
