No stopping? When our goals are in sight! Everything we had worked so hard for, is suddenly staring us in the face, and it seems right to believe we finally achieved what we’d worked so hard for. The prize won, perhaps we could let up a bit?
Think about it. Sometimes, when our pride is flying a little higher than it should, a little dose of reality may bring us crashing down.
God’s Word tells us: “The next section was repaired by the men of Tekoa, but (they) would not put their shoulders to the work under their supervisors.” (Nehemiah 3:5).
The Bible tells us that pride may feel good for the moment but it is never a good alternative to stepping aside when common sense and the good of others is involved. Pride often results in overconfidence. In the end we may end up looking foolish, even hurt. Pride is a collision course. Flying high may feel good; but overconfidence often leads to a rough landing. Feeling a little overconfident today? Reality may be waiting just around the corner and the crash and burn it may bring can really hurt when we realize where overconfidence can often lead.
“I pray today in Jesus name that when we are overcome by feelings of self-satisfaction in the work we do, we step back and review the situation. Is the work as good as God wants from us?” Amen!
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
