Influencing culture for the Kingdom

Proverbsv16:18 NIV

“Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.” 

Solomon knew of a lot of prideful people and watched their eventual fall. He also was aware of Satans eventual fall from a high place of honor because if pride.  “It is easy to spot a proud man. He likes to talk, especially about himself or his opinions. He does not serve others voluntarily, for it is beneath him, and he is too preoccupied with his own things. He moves in high circles, and he lives above his means. He rejects advice or warnings. He gets angry easily, criticizes others, and holds bitterness for past offences. A proud man presumes on people, is disrespectful of authority, and flouts the breaking of laws. He always has an excuse for his bad actions, instead of a humble apology. He makes commitments he cannot or will not keep. He speaks hastily. The problems in his life are always someone else’s fault. He will not seek help. He rules mainly by tyranny.” (Let God Be True) Humility is not just thinking the opposite of prideful thoughts, although retraining your mind and heart is a start. Humility is a way of living. It’s serving God and others. Putting their needs above yourself. Today walk humbly with God. #BeTheEdge
