Behavioral red flags

Before a downfall the heart is haughty,
but humility comes before honor. ( Proverbs 18:12 )

If ever anyone of us will be cautioned just right before we step into trouble there would have been half the problems in the world today. Fortunately for the Believer, the Lord, because of His love for us has not left us in the dark concerning these matters. Instead through his word, God exposes the red flags on our way to greatness and recognition. So that when we pay heed, we will be decorated with honour after the order of God’s ordination and institution. Our anchor scripture says the heart always becomes haughty before any downfall. This means that nobody enters or stumbles into a downfall, a difficult situation without the heart going ahead of them into haughtiness. And on the other hand, humility always precedes honour and glory. In that same vein, the life of a person can be predicted to end in honour if they walk in constant humility. The ball is therefore in our court; the onus lies with us. What becomes of us depends on what we make of this verse of scripture, should we choose the path of humility or the path of haughtiness.

Prayer_Bead: Merciful and everlasting King, prince of peace, thank you for the power of your word. Give me a discerning heart and an understanding mind. And teach me to walk in humility and love.
