CONCEIT?

Contacts can be found at the end of all posts.

CONCEIT DEFEATS!

The trouble with most of us is that we would rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism.  Norman Vincent Peal

I used to be the loudest of them all when it came to proclaiming my good works, but when it came to praising others you could hardly get a word out of me, and that word may come in the form of a whisper.

I had no excuses for my behavior other than I was conceited, and I blamed it all on bad habits I picked up from someone else, and of course jealousy had nothing to do with it.  It was all about self-righteousness, greed, coupled with the inability to see my true self.

With my chest puffed up, I found it easy to become trapped; as if a spell of am better than you had swept all over me.  The wool was being pulled over my head, and the whole time I thought I was all that…

We know what we do when we do it, especially when we want to go to the head of the class without earning it.

Well some of us know, but there are always those who think they are the only ones that matter, plus they think this is normal.  Regardless of what any of us think; we should not criticize, judge, put ourselves above others, including stealing their thunder as our own.  What we do will catch up with us.

Judge not, that you be judged.  For with what judgment you judge, you shall be judged: and with what measure you mete, it shall be measured to you again.  Matthew 1-3  KJV

In other words, you are going to get as much as you give.  Go ahead and mess up, and when asking for mercy explain why you did what you did, or said what you said, while having the ability to answer with anything other than, just because.

Hey!  I’m just as weak as the next one, and I have to fight my flesh every day to make it do what is right.  It’s hard to not pat myself on the back, even for what I think are good reasons.  But I am more than happy to have the opportunity to give All Glory To God.

That’s what we should be doing anyway Praising God.  Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.  Psalms 150:6

To the conceited that means nothing, all bets are off, because all things revolve around them.  They’re screaming Praise me, Praise me!

Conceit is an excessively favorable opinion of one’s own ability and importance.  Conceit is bigger and better than anything we can image in the eyes of the conceited.  Often the affected are bubbling with pride, full of vanity, and an ego as vast as the sky itself.

I can take a lot of that, but the non-stop babbling about exaggerated accomplishments can force me to draw the line and cry out to Jesus.

What the conceited may not know is that God gives us our talents, it’s a man who gives us fame, but the conceit is something we give to ourselves.  An overstated assessment of who we think we are, according to us, by us.

The Bible tells us in Philippians 2:3; Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourself.

There is a lot to be said about conceit, many a great minds say; conceit is a disease that will give you delusions of grandeur, others are optimistic and say self-confidence trumps conceit, then there are those who say the only difference between modesty and conceit is popularity.

Steve Maraboli say; We should Stop giving mean-less praise and start giving meaningful action.

As for me, I am going to follow the letter of the law as it is written; Let someone else praise you, and not your own mouth; an outsider, and not your own lips.  Proverbs 29:2

It’s Something to Think About!

Thank you, Lord, and it is in Jesus name that we pray.  Amen!

    While there is no definitive strategy for knowing how many times a week someone want to use pornography to become defined
    as a porn addict, signs that indicate this addiction include adjustments to a person’s habits and routine,
    neglect of private relationships, inability to function normally inside the
    society, and feelings of guilt, shame, and fear.

    Women who experience unevenness in inner and outer vaginal lips discover that apart from the unsightliness that this extra tissue causes, in addition, it brings about susceptible to chaffing, as well as discomfort during sports and sex.
    You’ll feel better, have an overabundance of energy, loose weight and enhance
    your odds of creating a baby.

    When you are both ready, consider exploring safe analingus
    (oral sex with the anus) together with your partner – if you don’t have
    got dental dams, you are able to cut open a condom lengthwise and put it on the opening with the anus to protect yourself
    from bacteria normally perfectly located at the anus. All live their lives as best they can within their
    community: work and play are the exact same, in accordance with everyone’s interests; friendships are a similar, considering that
    some individuals are generally prejudiced against Gay
    people yet others merely cautious; Gay folks have pets,
    interests, jobs, cars, a residence and family exactly the same as the majority of people.

    You’ll feel great, convey more energy, loose weight and raise
    your likelihood of using a baby.

    caused by the fire displayed in the post I looked at. And on this article CONCEIT?
    | Norvie L. Cherry. I was actually excited enough to post a thought 🙂 I do have 2 questions for you if it’s
    okay. Is it only me or does it seem like a few of the comments appear as if they
    are written by brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are
