Yesterday, a tradesman came by to give me a quote on something needing repair. His attitude was one of superiority and arrogance. No matter the price of the job, do you think he is going to get my business?
It is said that arrogance is a personality trait forged in childhood. If so, like many childhood traits, this lesser part of our personalities needs to be done away with and replaced with a dash of humility.
If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
Our land does need healing and so does that contractor’s attitude. In a world needing compassion and understanding more than anything else there is no place for arrogance.
