More on Pride

I was thinking the other day about a saying I once heard. (I don't agree with this saying so read what I have to say after it okay...Don't go all knee jerk on me...LOL)

"I would rather rule in hell, than serve in Heaven."

I believe that is the problem with most people. They have such a prideful view of themselves they refuse to serve. They refuse to serve those around them. They refuse to be subordinate to anyone. What happens is the hell they end up ruling is the hell they've created. They rant and rave about nothing going their way. No one catering to their needs, and after a while they find themselves alone in their own hell...but hey, they rule!!!

Yet the creator of the Universe didn't see anything wrong with being a servant. He washed His disciples feet. He touched the lame. He sought no government power.

We don't serve because it's beneath us.

There are those that believe in serving, by making others serve at the end of a gun while they rule. Using government coercion to make those that have give to those that don't have, yet all the while not making those that don't have serve.

True faith leads to servant-hood. Because love serves. And true faith and love requires no government coercion to act.

If you read this...I hope you seek the Lords guidance. May you be blessed and inspired by He who is Love.

God gives us our free will and we can decide what we want to do and face consequences accordingly. There is reward in service, here on Earth, but best of all in Heaven.
Good to hear your voice again Glen. Hope all is well with you and may God continually bless you and those around you.

Thanks for the words of encouragement bro. I was thinking about this the other day and decided to post last night. So many people can't see past their own noses and refuse to do for others and it just creates a hell for everyone around. I know, I'm just repeating myself. LOL. Jesus loves us so much, and has so much for us to do that can be so rewarding if we only get out of our pride bubble. Glad you're still out there bro. Thanks for reading. I need to get over to yours more often.
