Look Up!

“A proud man is always looking down on things and people; and, of course, as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something that is above you.” 

― C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

“Pride comes before being destroyed and a proud spirit comes before a fall.”

I am the very reason for my downfall.

Everybody’s Battle

“A proud man is always looking down on things and people; and, of course, as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something that is above you.”

― C.S. Lewis

“When pride comes, then comes disgrace,
but with humility comes wisdom.” 

— Proverbs 11:2  

Pride

elevates
us to glory.
It limits
our view
of what
God wants
in our
lives and
desensitizes
us from the
truth which
ultimately
leads to our 
down fall.

A Slap of the Truth

“God exists whether or not men may choose to believe in Him. The reason why many people do not believe in God is not so much that it is intellectually impossible to believe in God, but because belief in God forces that thoughtful person to face the fact that he is accountable to such a God.” — Robert A. Laidlaw 

“God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness. They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.

Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools. And instead of worshiping the glorious, ever-living God, they worshiped idols made to look like mere people and birds and animals and reptiles.

So God abandoned them to do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other’s bodies. They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen.”  

(Romans 1:18-25 NLT)

A life lived in autonomy is a life lingered in abomination.
