SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/20- “Don’t Allow Pride To Ride And Rule!”
Premise Question: Why do some people choose the way of pride, which leads to devastating disgrace and destructive demise, when everyone is given the wonderfully blest opportunity to choose the way of humility, which leads to wisdom, peace, satisfaction, fulfillment and joy?
“Pride leads to disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.”
(Proverbs 11:2 NLT)
When adulation, adoration and applause,
is heaped upon people’s lives,
then arrogance, hubris, insolence,
a full blown pride may arise,
swelled up in all of its pretense,
devastating disgrace and destructive demise,
but a meek, lowly and contrite heart of civility,
filled with modesty, courtesy and polite respect,
overcomes all arrogant insolent hubris, with humility,
which then brings wisdom from above,
in all of its truth, honor, good judgement and insight,
teaching and nurturing us with His unfailing love. (Proverbs 11:2 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Don’t allow pride, along for the ride, in your life! For its resulting consequences, when allowed to ride and rule in your life, are a loss of respect, honor and esteem, accompanied by, devastating disgrace, abject humiliation, total annihilation and utter destruction!
So, why anyone would ever choose to allow pride to ride along, to be the ruling influence in their life, lacks good sense, understanding or the ability to accept and comprehend the eventuality of the guaranteed outcome! There is, though, an actual cause and reason we can point to, that has a huge bearing on why one may succumb to being strongly influenced, carried away and overwhelmed in choosing to be led and directed by pride over humility.
Pride can be extremely intoxicating, as one can become completely inebriated and drunk on the praise, recognition and accolades being heaped upon them by others. It can cause a person to become confused, befuddled, delirious, vision impaired, unable to see themselves and things in their life for what they really are.
We are all subject to becoming captivated by our pride and the praise of others. It can have the debilitating affect on us of becoming imbalanced, beside ourselves, resulting in emotional and mental stupidity. When this occurs, we lose our ability to appropriately discern or make good judgements, and as a direct result, wise decisions are rarely, if ever, made!
So, don’t allow pride to ride and rule and reign in your life, where ignominy and shame prevails, but choose the way of humility and meekness, which leads to wisdom, peace and joy.
Remember, when we lose our balance, we are subject to falling! “Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall.” (Proverbs 16:18 NLT) Blessings…
