Remember when you were 16 years old? You knew everything…RIGHT?
I remember washing and waxing my car, getting myself ready on a Saturday night. I used to drive up and down South Lindbergh, in St. Louis, because I knew that’s where all the good-looking girls were.
In 1985, we called that CRUISIN’! (Are you with me?)
You’re driving down the road. Your T-top’s off. Your cassette tape of Thriller is blaring! You’ve got your arm propped up on the door just right!
You pull up to a stoplight. You kinda look… but you don’t look…because you’re really TOO COOL to look!
You rev the engine just a little. Vroom, vroom! Not too much, but just enough to get everybody’s attention. Yeah…that’s pride!
There’s a difference between being proud and being IN PRIDE.
It’s okay to be proud of your family. It’s okay to be proud of what God is doing in your life. Pride is different. God HATES pride!
That’s when we remove JESUS as the center of our universe and replace Him with somebody else. (Usually us!)
NEWS FLASH! The world doesn’t revolve around you! (Or me!)
We have to get over ourselves! Because, when we hog ALL the credit there’s no GLORY left for God!
Have a great day, today! I call you BLESSED!
