2 Corinthians 10:17 “But, “Let the one who boasts boast in the LORD.”
The Pride of CHRIST!
Pride is a coin double
sided, two – faced.
With Self esteem, it looks up
yet with Greed it looks down.
When humbled, it blesses;
When not, it’s greed filled.
When Godly, it’s gracious
but unchecked, it’s loveless.
So if anyone would boast, let them boast in the LORD.
Let them claim their self worth
in HIS footprints — behind!
For the greatest “Spotlight”
is HIS Glow which we preach!
Let the people then witness
our transparent vessels!
Single minded — unclouded,
fixed solely on JESUS,
then let HIM take pride
and give you grace instead!
As HIServant grateful for HIS mercies and grace,
Devotional: Proverbs 16:10 “Pride goes before destruction, and as arrogant spirit before a fall.”
Romans 12:16 “Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight.”
Proverbs 11:2 “When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom.”
James 4:6 “But HE gives more grace. Therefore it says, “GOD opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”
As a group of lions is called a pride…so too are we in CHRIST!
Collectively joined to share HIS WORD, united in humbled spirit, transparently illuminating those around us with, and only with HIS perfect Light!
So the correct type of Pride is that which wholly reflects GOD’s radiance alone! Strip away then every layer of foolishness.
Take no credit for your Self nor any sliver of HIS light — in the least — as your own!
Walk behind HIM in HIS footprints and the greatest Light will indeed shine THROUGH you!
Boast then, on my soul, just in the LORD! Amen and amen!
