11-25-14 Within the Crowd

Back of the Choir

arrogance

Whenever you begin to praise yourself

Or keep your mind affixed on worldly things,

You put perspective high upon a shelf

And soon forget the truth and what it brings.

The lowly man is humbled by his sin,

And knows without the Savior he is lost.

He bears affliction silently within,

And thinks less of himself whate’er the cost.

You cannot do one thing without God’s grace;

Remember that when you grow arrogant.

Christ’s sacrifice should put you in your place;

Life isn’t your own private treasure hunt.

Don’t count your treasure here among the proud,

Or you will lose your way within the crowd.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly,

than to divide the spoil with the proud.

Proverbs 16:19 KJV
