Do not Ride on Pride.

You have no idea what tomorrow holds in store for us, hence there’s need not to be prideful or raise shoulders as many will say. As opportunity has smiled on you today and raised you steps higher than your neighbour, same way will it smile on someone else tomorrow. And that someone else might be somebody you thought your shoulders were too high to lend to lean on or too neat for his or her head.
There’s only one destination your raised shoulders will take you to if you do not level them early enough and that will be on your kneels on the ground. Because the scripture cannot be broken as it is written in Proverbs 16:18; Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. The fall from a great height is always hard and breaks every bone. This will take the longest of time to be mended.
I believe every prideful ride takes you a level further than your original destination in life. It makes you think you’re more valuable than what you truly are hence the need to raise the shoulders to add to your worth. What you haven’t noticed is; it disfigures and lessens the value placed on you. People will only reach out to you because of what they can get from you. When they sing your praise, it won’t be out of love but act of enriching themselves.
No one really want to stretch that hard to lean on you. And even if they do, it doesn’t mean they respect you either but because they are helpless. Do not be deceived the result of pride tomorrow is destruction because those that are meant to look over your shoulders have been blocked because of the great height they’ve been raised up to. And never forget; God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble, James 4:6.
Those you see on the floor today from such great height will climb some day to greater height while you’re busy looking down on them. Be watchful of the ride you take so that Jesus can take the wheel and that ride shouldn’t be of pride.
Remember I do care and wish you the most fruits bearing day. And do remember to keep our nation in your prayers, for the peace and safety of her people. Cheers!!!
