To avoid name bashing let me just say this about that.
A few years ago a well known journalist and TV personality called the new appointment of a politician “A disaster wrapped in a calamity!”
Can anyone relate…without name bashing? Happy Saturday.
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.
The following is taken from Charles Stanley’s book, Relying on the Holy Spirit:
God knows who you are. He knows who He created you to be and which natural gifts, talents, abilities, and personality traits He put into your life. He knows which motivational gift is best suited to you.
God knows how to place us within a body of people to accomplish His ministry. He will open doors of opportunity for you to minister in a way that is suited to your natural gifts. Be open to how and when the Holy Spirit chooses to use you.
This is sound advice for those asking the question, “Who am I and why am I here?” Happy Sunday.
