Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. (KJV)
Now you know where Homer’s adage ‘Pride goeth before the fall’ comes from. In fact, if you look deeper into the ‘words of wisdom’ attributed to many famous people, you will find that they are simply a rewording of scriptures from God’s word, the Holy Bible. They fail to disclose that little known fact, instead taking the credit and accolades that belong to Him. Rather than placing so much emphasis on the sayings of people of renown, wouldn’t you rather hear it from the original author?
Our Heavenly Father,
Thank You for this day and all of Your blessings in our lives. Abba Lord, have Your Holy Spirit never allow us to be overly impressed with the wisdom of man. May we always remember that there is none other with greater words of wisdom than You. Before we become too impressed with another’s knowledge, let us first study their inspiration, Your Word, and take the teachings to heart.
We lift our prayers up to You in the Name of Your Son, Jesus the Christ…Amen.
Good morning to one and all. My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours for a safe and wonder-filled day.
May God Bless,
