Show a Good Sense

“We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some of those who commend themselves. But when they measure themselves with one another, they do not show good sense” 2 Corinthians 10:12 (NRSV)

Everyone has some elements of pride within, and these show up often in many cases, such as when we achieved something remarkable, and we feel the need to show off, so that those around us can see us.

This is good to some limit, I mean to some point, because when a show off becomes too much, it leads to sin and of course many nasty reactions.

To be happy about something is great BUT to take pride in showing off is very bad. You are a Christian, and for this, your joy must be centred in the Lord, and whatever achievement you have in life, you must boast in the Lord about this.

When you get to the point that you begin to commend yourself, saying that you do all and achieve all by your own power, then indeed, and just like the last words of the verse states, YOU HAVE NO GOOD SENSE.

Learn to boast in the Lord; do not commend yourself to an extreme. Show to God that to Him be all the adoration and honour. He is the one who raises you. It is not by your power or self that you achieved your goal or whatever.

Without God by your side, I bet you wouldn’t have make it this far, so do not be so ungrateful but comment God and avoid boasting. It is not for the child of God.

Peace!

Your Dark Ruling Angel

“Those with good sense are slow to anger, and it is their glory to overlook an offense.” Proverbs 19:11 (NRSV)
When you overlook an offense, it does not mean you are foolish as many people think. It just means you are trying to avoid trouble and that you are wiser than they thought.
Life is so small and so vast as well depending on how you tend to live it. When you flee from trouble, then you are elongating your life in the best way. What about when you tend to face any situation in your moment of anger?
Do you know that through your anger, you can end up shortening your life? Anger is not the best. It can destroy so much you have worked for within few seconds.
Anger can put you in jail. It has all the possibility to erase your good deeds from the surface of the earth.
Often anger may be for good cause but you have to watch it. You have to control your temper especially now that you are about to enter the New Year. Be extremely careful when you are annoyed.
Instead, I implore you to avoid anger at all cost. Flee from it if you must but don’t let it rule over you. You have every capacity within you to tame it. You have the Holy Spirit of God right inside of you. Ask Him to help you to deal with your hot temper.
You must do it now! Don’t wait until it ruins you or almost before you do something about it.
Peace!
