If you think there isn’t a pride problem among Christians today, take the time to read some of the bios, web-pages, book covers, album covers, etc. It’s sickening! I just can’t imagine how some people gush all over themselves and still sleep at night. It’s tempting to use some of them as examples, but it isn’t my job to expose them or embarrass them. That’s God’s business. But I really do wish they would take the time to read ,and think about, what they’ve said. Some would discover that they’ve made a fool out of themselves. If they are as talented as they say they wouldn’t have to say it—it would be obvious.
I’m sure some of these folks mean well and think they are doing you a favor by providing all this information, but do they really have to use words like “sensational”, “brilliant”, etc. to tell about themselves? Some of them sound like a spiritual version of Rush Limbaugh on speed–they just can’t stop talking about themselves. Well, that’s my rant for the day. I just hope there is a lesson in this for all of us. We are just sinners saved by grace and none of us have anything to boast about, except Christ. If you’ve got a little extra time it would be good to read 1Corinthians 4:1-7. Paul had it right when he said,”But by the grace of God I am what I am—“(1 Cor.15:10). Think about it!
