Proud and lofty

Isaiah 2:12”For the LORD of hosts will have a day of reckoning Against everyone who is proud and lofty And against everyone who is lifted up, That he may be brought low.”


People today are like ‘live wires’, so sensitive, they resist even mild correction and instructions!  This is nothing but a proud and lofty spirit!  Every one hour the woman who helps me in cooking at our Abide School, run for the poor and underprivileged kids, would say"I quit", for very silly things she would say, " I am not working anymore.".


She had huge debts to pay , her husband did not have a regular job; yet, she was proud and adamant. Well later I found she was a street-food vendor , selling food in the evening from her own cart, now I knew why the business woman kept saying, " I quit.". When you have an alternative, people tend to be arrogant, aggressive and nonadjustable.  She eventually did quit.If one kidney works, people manage on their own with another, if the wife/ husband fights they have alternative arrangements outside.  Don't stare at me, I say the truth.


Well, coming back to the cook, after few months, during pandemic she called, came back humbly  to join back because now the evening shop had gone, she and her husband were without job and food.  Puffed up head with full pockets do not know how to respect others, likewise people forget, ignore God and Church when things are hunky dory in their lives.  God had to bring covid19 to teach the world a lesson, but did they get it? I wonder!!!!


Friend, there are many teachings offered today on the art of being calm and controlled, through techniques like yoga etc., but only Jesus can give you true peace and humility, many homes are shattered because of pride.  The aftermath of success, education, knowledge and fame is pride.  Curb it! Psalm 31:23“…The Lord fully repays the proud person.”
