Not of Ourselves


What is it that we have that makes us believe that we did it ourselves? I always heard what “I” have accomplished. It seems that “I” always gets in the way. Pride is important to your self-worth. But remember that pride goes before a fall. The bible says that great is the fall from pride. We have to temper our ego to be effective. I worked for a Christian radio station and interviewed many Christian leaders across the country. You know what attracted me to them the most, was their humility. They were easy to talk to. They were normal people who had achieved prominence in the Christian community. They had kept their prospective on life. This quality had endeared them to people around them. And that is why the people around them chose them to lead. There are people that achieve greatness in this life. Some think that they did it by themselves. That is the kind of people you steer clear of. We are a community of social beings. We depend on each other for our needs. God made us that way for a special reason. So we would communicate with each other. Communicating not only our interest, but compassion and help. This is how God shows everyone who He is and what He is willing to do for us. God made us in His image and likeness. It is not what you look like on the outside. It is who you are inside. You may not think that you are worth much, but as they say God doesn’t make junk. When each person is born, they are perfect in the eyes of God. What each person learns is up to the people who raised them and themselves. Each person has the opportunity to learn of God. Then they will know who they are and what their purpose is on this earth. As the bible says, it is not of ourselves, but it is the gift of God.

  1. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running off
    the screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but
    I thought I’d post to let you know. The design look great though!

    Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Many thanks

  2. Hi there fantastic blog! Does running a blog like this take a massive amount work?
    I have very little understanding of programming however I was hoping to
    start my own blog soon. Anyways, if you have any recommendations or techniques for
    new blog owners please share. I understand this is off topic but I just had to ask.
    Cheers!
