Arrogance

June 27, 2008

I am convinced I have a mile wide swath of arrogance running through my veins. How about you? Isa. 2:10-22

10 Go into the rocks,
hide in the ground
from dread of the LORD
and the splendor of his majesty!
11 The eyes of the arrogant man will be humbled
and the pride of men brought low;
the LORD alone will be exalted in that day.
12 The LORD Almighty has a day in store
for all the proud and lofty,
for all that is exalted
(and they will be humbled),
13 for all the cedars of Lebanon, tall and lofty,
and all the oaks of Bashan,
14 for all the towering mountains
and all the high hills,
15 for every lofty tower
and every fortified wall,
16 for every trading ship [b]
and every stately vessel.
17 The arrogance of man will be brought low
and the pride of men humbled;
the LORD alone will be exalted in that day,
18 and the idols will totally disappear.
19 Men will flee to caves in the rocks
and to holes in the ground
from dread of the LORD
and the splendor of his majesty,
when he rises to shake the earth.
20 In that day men will throw away
to the rodents and bats
their idols of silver and idols of gold,
which they made to worship.
21 They will flee to caverns in the rocks
and to the overhanging crags
from dread of the LORD
and the splendor of his majesty,
when he rises to shake the earth.
22 Stop trusting in man,
who has but a breath in his nostrils.
Of what account is he?

Too much trying to figure it all out. Too much telling others how much I know and what I have done and can do.

Arrogance. My theology is smothered with arrogance. My teaching and my treatment of others. You read my blog, any observations that might humble me?

I’m taking a blog break, let me know your thoughts.

Thanks.

    Without question, I’ve never sensed arrogance in you. OK, when you put my picture on a label of a jar of sauce. But other than that…

    Seriously…it’s not evident to me if it is there.
