I've been thinking on this for several days but the thought was well articulated last night during the discussion time of our family devotions......
|Lookie at What I did! I did it for you, aren't I wonderful?|
|...if they would only recognize what I've done!|
|I am an amazing person, I do so much for others!|
We are all guilty of the sin of pride. The desire to be recognized, praised, thanked. Whether you are the silent "sufferer" or the loud, self praising, may we all strive to see this sin in ourself and pray that we can overcome it with the help of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
"He must increase, but I must decrease." John 3:30
|Lord, help me die to self and glorify you as you only are worthy of praise|
