Don’t Be Arrogant and Prideful

Don’t Be Arrogant and Prideful
Author: Pat AH Aman

We must not be arrogant when working with other fellow men, but, be loving and have a Servants Heart.

Have you ever dealt or known someone who thought the world revolves around them and their time schedule?

I think we all have and maybe even ourselves been known to fall in this category.

You as I have seen people who were even able to even lift someone’s burden, but their mind was so full of themselves that they did not realize it.

We never need to judge anyone, period!

If Father God has laid on your heart to be a blessing to someone just do it. Do not look at their circumstances and then think, well, they have children or others to help them. You may not know the what those person’s are going through are their circumstances so that is why Father God spoke to you. You just be obedient to Father God.

I think that daily we must make sure we are letting people see Jesus through our eyes.

We do this by saying, “ how would Jesus handled this situation?

If we do this then we will be walking the path that Father God has for us to walk.

Is it possible that God desires something far greater for us than our own personal ambition? Yes it is, and yes He does. This greater thing that God wills is to be found in the most unlikely of places, a place to which most of us would never look at all: servanthood.

Perhaps no Scripture verses capture both the servant-heart of Christ and the command that we follow in the footsteps of servanthood better than Philippians 2:3–8: “Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.”
