Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. For today’s post, I wanted to share with you all what I learned during this morning’s Quiet Time. Here are the scriptures I read while taking my notes:
- Prov. 3:5-6
- Prov. 3:7
- Prov. 16:18
- Prov. 26:12
So let’s start with the Verse of the Day from Proverbs 3:7.
“Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and turn away from evil.”
–Proverbs 3:7 NASB
In the Story this morning, it talks about how we need to kill the pride in us learn to trust in God’s Word and His wisdom. We should not trust our OWN wisdom, but in God’s. The story goes on to talk about 3 Types of People:
- The Arrogant– think they don’t need to learn from anyone
- The Naive– believe that only one person can teach them everything
- The Teachable– learn from everyone and everything around them. The people who make an impact on others are the ones that are teachable
Another verse that relates to pride is Proverbs 16:18:
“Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before stumbling.”
–Proverbs 16:18 NASB
I learned that pride is also tied to our lack of faith. Lately, I’ve been asking myself questions like:
- Why do I feel stuck?
- What is my purpose and how do I step into it?
- Am I doing the right thing?
The answer for these questions that I learned from watching Tracy Morgan J, which is to get my faith up. If I don’t have faith, how God give me my blessings, how can He help me get through the issues I struggle with everyday. How can I fight against temptation, all these things I’m experiencing are due to my lack of faith.
Overall, I learned that pride is a attitude that we learned, we weren’t born with this attitude. But, we can unlearn it by paying attention and learn to listen to God. It can help us become teachable people. It takes honesty to have a real look at our “see elf” and change our attitude.
Well, let me get my day started. I hope you all enjoy this morning’s post. I’ll check back with you later. Here is the last scripture for you to read and reflect on: Proverbs 26: 12:
“Do you see a man wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him.“
-Proverbs 26:12 NASB
Until next time…
