Humble thyself (Isaiah 2:12)

For the LORD of hosts has a day against all that is proud and lofty, against all that is lifted up—and it shall be brought low;

Pigs

Conceited pigs- ever had an encounter with them? I bet at least once in your life, you did. There are a lot of this kind existing in our circle. Just to be not called harsh, I just ignore them. However, sometimes they are getting into my nerves that I can’t help but feel irritated which is not right.

Those who exalt themselves will be humbled and those who humble themselves will be exalted.

Humble thy selves. All that we have comes from above so we need not boast about it. If there is something that we should be proud of, that is about what our God has done for us.

It is in our nature to be envious of those persons who possess big houses, luxury cars, and million pennies in the bank, famous and popular. But be aware that too much of it could drown you and pull you away from God’s side. Do not feel belittled. Put in mind that all of these will come to pass. We are just here on Earth to stay temporarily. The real residence were we would be will be revealed after life.

Sometimes it is good when we are lacking because it draws us closer to our Maker unlike when we have all the things. There is a possibility for us to forget the one who had provided all that we have.
