Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves.” (Philippians‬ ‭2‬:‭3‬ NLT)

Utah State was on their way to taking a 14-0 lead early in the second quarter last night for a possible upset over Oregon in college football. Then the unthinkable happened that changed the game. Utah receiver Kaelin Clay casually dropped the ball a yard before he crossed the goal line! As the Utes celebrated, an Oregon player grabbed the ball and chugged 99 yards down the sideline for a touchdown!

Pride always has a way of biting you when you least need it to. Maybe our life isn’t on display for the nation to watch, but the Lord will eventually allow our pride to catch us. Not that He is mean, but sometimes the only way to find our humble path is to fall on our face!

As you come to church today, come with a humble heart. When God knows that our pride is in check, He begins to lift us up. And if you’re willing, He’ll gently lead you to a right attitude without allowing ESPN to debut your mistakes! You are loved today!

All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Peter 1:3 NLT)

Music Superstar Kanye West is a fortunate man. While his music sales have gone through the roof and his name is atop the industry, it seems that the hype has defined the man. In one interview with Tim Westwood, he described himself thus:

I’m going down as a legend, whether or not you like me or not. I am the new Jim Morrison. I am the new Kurt Cobain … The Bible had 20, 30, 40, 50 characters in it. You don’t think that I would be one of the characters of today’s modern Bible?”

The Apostle Peter walked personally with Jesus. By the time he wrote this epistle, he had “rock star” status among the early church groups. Yet, he knew where all praise belongs: To the God that makes all things possible and all men forgiven. For Peter, it was never about self, but only about lifting up The Lord.

Nobody can point a finger at Kanye, he’s only doing what we all do at some point. Pride is Satan’s way of stealing from God what is rightfully His. While it’s healthy to have a good esteem, give God the credit for all that you are. For apart from Him, the Bible says, we are nothing! But we are loved! Enjoy your day!
