SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/21- “The Way Of Humility Is Best Chosen!” (Proverbs 18:12)

Premise Question: Just what is the marked differences between haughtiness and humility, and where does each of them end up?

“Haughtiness goes before destruction; humility precedes honor.”
(‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭18:12‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

In advance of a disastrous failure overtaking a person’s life, and causing their complete undoing, resulting in ruination of a respectable reputation, and also accompanied by great loss; the issue begins in the innermost part of the person’s being, which is, the seat of their emotions, ethics, desires and attitudes—their heart. Now, unfortunately for them, when a person gives the self over to being highfalutin, pretentious, arrogantly supercilious and disdainfully contemptuous, disaster always follows. But, when an individual approaches life with a “down to earth,” genuinely meek, as well as, modest and humble heart, by not ever exhibiting an air of superiority, thinking they are better than someone else; then, that is the precursor that shows up, by making an appearance ahead of the huge blessings and benefits, along with the great honor, respect and high esteem, that will be conferred upon each individual’s life, who displays such humility. (Proverbs 18:12 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Haughtiness, which creates a debilitating blind spot in a person’s life, is accompanied by its self-centered, cantankerous, being recalcitrant and stubborn attitudes, as well as, being entirely incorrigible, intractable and snobbish, while displaying, disdainfully proud and obstinate behaviors, which are full of scorn and arrogant pomposity, will always pave the way for a person’s life to be ushered onto the path that will ultimately lead to utter devastation, complete ruination, ending in total destruction of one’s life and reputation!

Humility, conversely though, with its attitudes and behaviors of lowliness, meekness, gentleness, deference, reverence, respect and regard for Papa God and others, creates perfect vision and discernment in a person’s life, as it opens up the lines of communication with Papa God’s Spirit, in order to develop a personal relationship with His Son Jesus Christ, who then becomes our spiritual guide, by the Spirit, directing and leading us to the way and upon the path of eternal life, divine wisdom, perfect peace and the fullness of everlasting joy!

Therefore, always remember: The way of humility is always best chosen! Haughtiness is the quickest way to wreck yourself! Humility is the only way to great honor! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/20- “Don’t Allow Pride To Ride And Rule!”
(Proverbs 11:2)

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…
