1 Corinthians 13:4
is not puffed up, (KJV, NKJV)
proud (NLT, NIV, CJB)
does not display itself haughtily. (AMP)
Doesn’t force itself on others, Isn’t always “me first,” (MESS)
What does this mean?? Well it means that you are not be “look at me and no one else” person.
Jon walked into school with her boyfriend Frank. She walked so that everyone would get our of her way. She had all the new clothes that would come out. So would also put others down. Her boyfriend was as bad. Every place that they went all the kids would try to get out of their way. She was an only child and so was Frank. They had everything that they wanted. They would also tell the others kids so that they would be joules.
Now Jon and Frank need to learn that being proud only makes them look bad and NOT good!!
Here are more scriptures that go with this:
The end of a thing is better than its beginning; The patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit. (NKJV)
Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall. (NKJV)
For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips, Let them even be taken in their pride, And for the cursing and lying which they speak. (NKJV)
The wicked man does deceptive work, But he who sows righteousness will have a sure reward. (NKJV)
By pride comes nothing but strife, But with the well-advised is wisdom. (NKJV)
A man’s pride will bring him low, But the humble in spirit will retain honor. (NKJV)
So this week ask GOD if there is any area of your life that you are proud in and ask HIM to help you get rid of it!!!
