It was pride that led an angel to turn against the God that HE KNEW formed the Universe, that HE KNEW was all powerful, and that HE KNEW deserved all praise. Satan got so full of himself that he turned from God and LOOK WHAT IT LED TO!
Perhaps that is why the greatest trick up Satan’s sleeve is pride. Just look at this world! We are/I am a bunch of self righteous pride. Oh, Don’t you dare say that ABOUT ME! Oh, Don’t you dare try to correct me! Oh no you did not just cut ME off in traffic! You did not just say that to ME, do you know who I am?! Why do you expect ME to help? We/I are so full of ourselves!
Father, take me down a notch! Ouch! That prayer hurts! And I don’t like to hurt! BUT I WOULD RATHER HELP! I want to stop focusing on ME! Lord, open my eyes to other’s around me!
“They will know we are Christians by our love.” DOES ANYONE KNOW I AM A CHRISTIAN?!
Lord, bring others in need to me and give me no other option but to help them! Let’s start a revolution! Let the world say, “Who are these people?!” Make it obvious that we are different! We think of other people before ourselves, we wait patiently, speak kindly, are not quick to anger, help those in need, WE ARE CHRISTIANS.
