There is a fine line between arrogance and confidence. The line is humility. A humble man carries the sweet aroma of a meek spirit. Are there any areas in your life where you have become arrogant?
Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. (James 4:10)
He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way. (Psalm 25:9)
humble: (1) Not proud (2) Not thinking of yourself as better than other people. (3) Reflecting, expressing, or offered in a spirit of deference or submission. (definition from merriam-webster.com)
I needed this today. Thank you. 🙂
I needed it too! 😉
Another great thought here! Arrogance and pride will take a person down very fast and very completely…
Just like a burning plane. LOL!
Yep. Funny that I just thought of that movie “Snake on a plane.”
The snake, (serpents as the form of the devil), reek havoc on that plane and cause chaos, destruction, and death.
What a great analogy!
LOL! I forgot about that movie. It goes perfect with that analogy.
What’s even crazier is that on Wednesday night bible study, I had a brother come to me and ask if I wanted to share in the cost of taking out a small aircraft for fun…
If he knew me very well, he would have known that the mere idea of flying, especially in a small plane, doesn’t appeal to me one little bit. Even less so if I’m paying for the experience!
No snakes, no planes, no how…LOL!
LOL! They say flying is safer than driving.
Well, when given the choice, I prefer to keep the “rubber on the road!” There are always going to be fewer accidents and deaths in planes than in cars.
That’s because there are a whole lot more cars on the roads than planes in the air. I’d bet there are more cars on the LA freeways alone then there are in all of the U.S. airspace…lol!
This is perfect for my day. Thank you.
Awesome! Thanks for sharing! Being humble is a tough! 🙂
