Pride

It’s interesting, at least to me, that when I write, I want to write something so profound and earth shattering that it changes the world.  I know that’s really not possible, but it is the way I am.

I’ve also notice that when I think about teaching a Sunday school class, that in my mind I will be so good that they’ll have to build a new building just to hold the class.

I guess there’s really nothing wrong with either of those ideas or thoughts except they leave out God.   How does God get the glory in those mindsets.

Even on a lower level when people come to my house, I want them to have the impression that I’m super spiritual.  (See my cape)  I have commentaries and books on the bible on my shelves.  I really use them, but secretly I want others to see them.

I’ve been noticing that trend, or more likely that God has been showing me this trend in my  thought process. And also showing me that this is pride and this is sin.  This is my sin.
