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.” 

—Proverbs 16:18 (NLV)

 

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.

I Need No Stage

“I long to accomplish a great and noble task,

but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.”

— Helen Keller

People today aim very big with big-time evangelistic concerts and showbiz conferences.

There’s nothing inherently wrong with such events.

However, God is glorified as a simple man accepts a beggar into his home as much as a singer leads 10,000 people in worship.

Let’s not forget that simple acts of service in humility are beautiful events in themselves.

You Are Small

“Can you catch the eye of the beautiful Pleiades sisters, 
   or distract Orion from his hunt?
Can you get Venus to look your way, 
   or get the Great Bear and her cubs to come out and play?
Do you know the first thing about the sky’s constellations 
   and how they affect things on Earth?”

Job 38:31-33, The Message

Man thinks he’s so big and powerful,

But the heavens proves him otherwise.
