When I got on the train on my way home, I saw rubbish in one of the seats.
I didn’t want to touch it because of the possibility that I might catch something from it, but I felt that the Holy Spirit told me to clean it up. I did have a plastic bag in my backpack and tissue paper, so I picked up the trash with my napkin, put the garbage in the plastic bag, and put the bag inside my pack.
It felt good when I did it. I felt so proud of myself. My mind played scenes of how righteous I was and that everyone should be like me.
That’s when I realised something was wrong with me. I commanded my brain to let go of those thoughts.
It’s surprising how a simple thing can fill me with pride. Pride is a scary thing. The Bible says pride precedes the fall. It may be a simple act, but it could be the start of your downfall. Watch out for pride.
Let's focus on promoting good vibes and spread positivity! Focus on Jesus and give God the glory!
New International Version
When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.
