Look At Me!
Any person who truly starts their walk as a Christian has the best intentions to finish strong. That being the case, why do so many of us wind up crashing on the rocks of life? Although there are probably a million things that can lead to pride, I believe pride is probably the #1 problem when you boil it all down. We start out strong, but we forget where our power really comes from. Before long we’re thinking that it’s US who are in charge of our destinies. Even the accomplishments the Lord helps us to achieve become stumbling stones for many as they fail to give Him the credit for His work. A loving God simply will not let one of His Children rest when they’ve gone that far astray. Trouble will be on the horizon soon! I believe the answer is never to think too highly of ourselves. Of course, that can most effectively be done when we look at ourselves in the Light of Christ. Let’s face it, even the best of us looks terrible when matched against perfection.
“You may say to yourself, ‘My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.’ but remember the Lord your god, for it is he who give you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today.” Deuteronomy 8:17-18
