Proud a Araith y Gogoniant Duw

Cyflwyniad

Rwyf wrth fy modd plant. One of the reasons I love kids is because they show us ourselves. They’re like little mirrors. Gadewch imi ddweud wrthych yr hyn yr wyf yn ei olygu. Kids wedi 'n bert lawer i gyd o'r un problemau sydd gennym, ond problemau hynny yn unig yn llawer mwy amlwg oherwydd nad ydynt yn gwybod sut i guddio nhw eto. Mae hyn yn wir yn glir pan fydd plant yn gwneud pethau nad ydynt yn fod i'w wneud.

Ydych chi erioed wedi gweld rhywbeth cyffwrdd plentyn nad ydynt yn fod i gyffwrdd? They’ll look around to see if you’re looking. Nid ydynt yn poeni os fyn arall yn edrych; eu bod nid yn unig yn dymuno i oedolion neu rieni i weld. Pam eu bod yn gwneud hynny, er? Because they know you’re in charge, ac nid ydynt am i chi i gael gwybod am eu bod yn gwybod eich bod yn y un y mae'n rhaid iddynt ateb i.

Adults are the same way. Often we’re OK with doing things we’re not supposed to do, cyhyd â bod y person yn rhaid i ni ateb i ddim yn cael gwybod. Rydych yn falch i gyflymu nes i chi weld cops i ddod. Efallai rydym yn falch o adael y gwaith yn gynnar cyn belled â nad yw ein bos yn cael gwybod. Maybe some of us cheat on tests as long as the professor doesn’t catch us. We don’t usually care if people know we’re doing something wrong, oni bai ei fod yr awdurdod yn rhaid i ni ateb i.

yn 1 Samuel 2, Hannah prays in response to the birth of her son Samuel. And in this prayer, hi yn rhybuddio pobl eraill i beidio â chyflawni un pechod penodol, oherwydd bod eu Barnwr yn gwylio. Trowch gyda mi i 1 pennod Samuel 2, pennill 3.

Peidiwch â chadw siarad mor falch na gadael eich ceg siarad haerllugrwydd o'r fath, canys yr Arglwydd yn Dduw sy'n gwybod, ac i'r hwn gweithredoedd yn cael eu pwyso.
(1 Samuel 2:3)

Yn y testun hwn, Hannah yn ein rhybuddio yn erbyn araith prideful, because God will find out and He’ll hold us accountable for it. Dyna beth yr wyf yn meddwl bod y prif bwynt pennill hwn yw: If you talk proudly, bydd rhaid i chi ateb i Dduw ar ei gyfer.

We may be tempted to think our prideful words don’t matter much. But if you think your prideful words don’t matter, I’m afraid for you. They should matter to you, oherwydd eu bod o bwys i Dduw, and He’s the One you have to answer to. We won’t finally answer to our parents, neu ein cyfeillion, neu ein bugeiliaid, ond i Dduw.

Gyda hynny mewn golwg, Hoffwn ofyn ychydig o gwestiynau i ddeall y testun yn well.

cwestiwn 1: Beth mae'n ei olygu i Siarad Falch?

Mae'n golygu defnyddio eich geiriau i exalt eich hun.

cefndir

Now typically we would think of self-exalting words as just simply bragging about how amazing we are, ond mae llawer o ffyrdd i siarad gyda balchder. Ac yr wyf yn credu mai un o'r ffyrdd y mae Hannah mewn golwg yw hyn a welwn ym mhennod 1.

Hannah was the wife of a man named Elkanah. She wasn’t his only wife though. Roedd ganddo un yn fwy wraig o'r enw Peninna. Roedd gan Peninna plant, ond Hannah oedd amhlantadwy. A byddai Peninna bôn taunt Hannah am y peth. Ac oherwydd ei barrenness ac mae hyn Hannah gwawdio ei drist ac y byddai'n wylo.

Yr wyf yn meddwl Peninna yn enghraifft o'r araith prideful Hannah yn ein rhybuddio yn erbyn. Nid Peninna yn unig oedd yn tynnu sylw at y ffaith bod ganddi blant. Nid oedd yn jyst yn ceisio atgoffa Hannah o'r ffeithiau. She was taunting her, boasting over her, tormenting her.

That just sounds like she’s being mean. How is it talking proudly? Well it seems like Peninnah was using this as a way to assert herself over Hannah. It seems like she was assuming that somehow her bearing of children made her better than Hannah, nad oedd yn wir. Scripture clearly says that children are a gift from the Lord. Peninnah was talking proudly, a byddai'n rhaid iddi ateb i Dduw ar ei gyfer.

Ffyrdd Rydym Sgwrs Falch

P'un a ydym yn cydnabod neu beidio, we all talk proudly and speak with arrogance in a variety of ways:

1. One obvious way is bragging about our accomplishments. Sometimes we can’t wait to tell others about what we have and what we’ve accomplished. Ond nid ydym yn moli Duw am iddo; the goal is making ourselves look better. I’ve caught myself doing this on many occasions. Efallai rhedeg i mewn i hen ffrind ac maent yn gofyn i mi yr hyn yr wyf wedi bod yn gwneud. Gallwn ddweud rapio, ond byddai'n well gen i dynnu sylw at ddyfarniadau neu gyflawniadau eraill.

2. Neu beth am y pethau yr ydym yn ei ddweud am bobl eraill? Sometimes we slander others. Rydym am i baentio nhw mewn golau gwael, felly byddwn yn edrych yn dda. Maybe at work we point out that a particular co-worker is pretty lazy, fel y bydd pobl yn sylwi ar y gwahaniaeth rhyngoch chi dau. Neu efallai yn hytrach na bod grasol gydag eraill, we’re self-righteous. We stand as a judge over them, oherwydd ei fod yn gwneud i ni deimlo'n well am ein cyflawniadau ysbrydol. Hynny yw lleferydd prideful.

3. Or sometimes even when we say good things. Maybe it’s a testimony on a Sunday night. It could be a gripping story about God’s work in a friend’s life, but your motives could be your glory instead of God’s. Or letting someone know you’ve been praying for them. Or teaching a Sunday School class. Even good things can be proud speech if your goal is exalting yourself.

Mae rhai o'r enghreifftiau hyn yn fwy amlwg nag eraill. Felly, sut ydych chi'n gwybod os yw'n? Beth gwahanu araith balch o ffeithiau yn datgan? Talking proudly is when you don’t acknowledge God as the One who’s sovereign and deserving of glory, yn eich calon neu'r geiriau eu hunain. A phan fyddwn yn gwneud hynny, rydym yn cymryd gogoniant sy'n perthyn i Dduw.

Efallai y bydd eich geiriau yn cydnabod Duw, ond beth am eich calon? Other people may not be able to tell the difference, but Hannah reminds us that the Lord is a God who knows. Ac os ydym yn defnyddio ein geiriau i exalt ein hunain, bydd yn rhaid i ateb iddo ar ei gyfer.

Yn y testun Hannah yn dweud wrthym beidio â siarad gyda balchder, ac yna mae hi'n dweud wrthym pam: am fod yr Arglwydd yn Dduw sy'n adnabod ac yn pwyso gweithredoedd.

cwestiwn 2: Pam Fod Gorfod Ateb i Dduw am Lleferydd Proud?

Oherwydd ei fod yn ymosodiad ar ei ogoniant.

Os mai dim ond un o'r ddau ymadroddion ddiwethaf yn wir, it would change a lot. If God knew, ond nid oedd y barnwr, or if God was the judge but didn’t know. But the perfectly just Judge is also the all-knowing God. Nid yn unig y bydd Duw yn cael gwybod, Mae'n gwrando. God is at all times tuned in to every conversation that’s happening. Almost like He has an infinite amount of security cameras placed in every square foot of the earth. Mae'n gwybod. Ac os ydym yn ymosod ar ei ogoniant gyda lleferydd balch, Bydd yn gwybod.

lladrata Duw

Os byddaf yn mynd i mewn i'ch cyfrif banc, ac yn cymryd arian a'i gymhwyso i fy nghyfrif, yw bod dwyn? Of course it is. Rwy'n cymryd rhywbeth sy'n eiddo i chi, ac yn gwneud cais iddo i fy hun. Ni allaf roi unrhyw un o'ch arian fy hun heb gymryd oddi wrthych. Ac ei fod yn anghywir oherwydd ei fod yn perthyn i chi.

Pan fydd bodau dynol yn ceisio rhoi gogoniant eu hunain, they rob God of His. You cannot ascribe to yourself praise and glory, heb ddwyn oddi wrth Dduw. Pride is an attack on God’s glory. pam? Because an overestimation of self comes from an underestimation of God. Gadewch i mi ddweud hynny eto: oramcangyfrif o hunan dod o amcangyfrif rhy isel o Dduw. Ac fel y gwelwn mewn 1 Samuel 1, amcangyfrif rhy isel hwn o Dduw, hefyd yn arwain at amcangyfrif rhy isel o bobl eraill. Felly meddwl yn rhy uchel am ein hunain yn dod o feddwl yn rhy isel o Dduw, ac yn arwain at meddwl yn rhy isel o bobl eraill.

Roedd Peninna camgymryd. Mae hi'n goramcangyfrif ei hun drwy roi ei hun ar yr orsedd Sovereign, as if she opened her own womb. And we’re often guilty of the same. Rydym yn credu ein bod yn y rhai a ddylai gael credyd am y dyrchafiad, neu'r rhai plant sy'n ymddwyn yn dda, neu ein sefyllfa ariannol. Ydw, bydd Duw yn gwobrwyo ein gwaith caled, but that doesn’t guarantee anything. God’s will is the real deciding factor in every situation. Yr hyn sy'n bwysig yn olaf nid yw ein cryfder, ein doethineb, neu hyd yn oed ein ffyddlondeb.

Lleferydd prideful

So pride is wrong. All of us have some pride in our hearts that we must fight. Pan fyddwch yn meddwl yn eich calon eich bod yn haeddu gogoniant, that itself is a sin. But prideful speech is taking it to another level. How could we, bodau dynol yn bechadurus, gael y Audacity, nid yn unig i feddwl ein bod yn deilwng o ogoniant Duw, ond i gyflwyno y ffordd i eraill ei fod mewn gwirionedd? To try to convince others to give us the glory that belongs to God alone. Talking proudly is like not only robbing someone, ond dweud wrth bawb am y peth ac yn eu hannog i wneud yr un fath.

Yr unig beth yw, God doesn’t need video footage to know you’re guilty. God will not tolerate human beings trying to rob Him of His glory and encouraging others to do the same. A dyna pam Hannah yn dweud na ddylem ei wneud.

lleferydd prideful yn pigo ymladd gyda Duw, which is why it’s inconsistent with the life of a believer. Fel y clywsom y bore yma, "Duw yn gwrthwynebu y balch, ond yn rhoi gras i'r gostyngedig. "

gweithredoedd Yn wyneb

Os nad ydym yn yng Nghrist, ein geiriau balch, will be yet another reason for God to punish us. Our evil deeds will continue to help the overwhelming case against us. If you’re not in Christ, there is nothing more terrifying than an all-knowing Judge. So if you’re here tonight and you don’t Jesus, os gwelwch yn dda yn dod i adnabod Ef. Trowch oddi wrth eich pechod, and throw yourself on His mercy. He was incredibly humble—humble enough to die so that sinners like you and me can live. Dringodd o'r bedd gyda phob pŵer, a galwadau dynion i ddilyn Ef. Byddem wrth ein bodd i siarad â chi mwy am hynny wedyn.

Ond fel Cristnogion, beth mae'n ei olygu ar gyfer ein gweithredoedd rhaid pwyso a mesur? Every believer in this room will have to answer to God for every proud word they speak, but our judgment will be different. Christ has already taken our sins on the cross. But this warning should still impact the way we live. Pan fyddwn yn sefyll gerbron Duw, our deeds will either testify to the fact that we’ve trusted in Christ or that we were too proud to trust in Christ alone.

hefyd, we want to please the Father. Of course He’s pleased with us in Christ, ond yr ydym am iddo fod yn fodlon ar ein gwaith da sy'n dod allan o ffydd yng Nghrist. Rydym yn awyddus i blesio ein Duw cariadus.

Ni ddylem ganiatáu geiriau trahaus i ddod oddi wrth ein cegau. Ac er y bydd yn rhaid i ni ateb i Dduw am ein araith balch, dylem foli Duw fod ein pechodau yn cael eu cynnwys yng Nghrist.

Felly os ydym am i Dduw i'w ogoneddu gan ein lleferydd, sut yr ydym yn ymladd hyn sgwrs drahaus?

cwestiwn 3: Sut Ydym Ymladd Lleferydd Proud?

Rydym yn gwneud iddo gan ymlawenhau yn Nuw.

Dylem wylio ein lleferydd, but that’s not enough. It’s like telling someone with a cold the solution is just to hold their sneeze in. Nac oes, mae'r salwch yn yr hyn y mae angen ei ymosod arnoch.

The proud heart rejoices in itself. But the humble heart rejoices in God. Edrychwch ar y geiriau cyntaf o weddi Hannah yn y pennill 1: “My heart rejoices in the Lord.” Hannah shows us the proper response to the Lord’s blessing. Nid dim ond ymlawenhau yn yr hyn y mae'r Arglwydd wedi rhoi, ond yn y Rhoddwr Hun. Gallai ein hymateb fod yn falch, ond yn hytrach dylai gynhyrchu gostyngeiddrwydd ynom, oherwydd ein bod yn derbyn rhodd gan Dduw

God gives and takes away. God distributes and withholds. Ond Mae'n gwneud hyn i gyd ar gyfer ein da ac yn ei ogoniant. We falter when we begin to depend on those things too much. Rejoicing in God kills both pride and hopelessness.

Sut ydych chi'n llawenhau yn Nuw? Do what it takes to remind yourself who’s behind everything. Praise God when you receive that check. Dyma pam yr ydym yn diolch i Dduw cyn ein bwyd. Remembering that it’s arrogant to assume our plans will always go forth. Dweud Arglwydd barod. Give glory to God when others congratulate you on your accomplishments. Peidiwch am funud caniatáu i'ch calon i gymryd credyd. Gwyliwch eich araith prideful. Dewch o hyd i'r gwreiddiau o falchder yn eich calon.

Casgliad

Mae pob un sengl ohonom wedi cael cyfle anhygoel gyda phob gair yr ydym yn siarad. Rydym yn cael i ddefnyddio ein geiriau i ogoneddu Duw a wnaeth i ni. Rydym yn cael i ddefnyddio ein geiriau i helpu eraill yn gweld Duw ar gyfer yr Arglwydd gogoneddus fod Ef yw.

So my encouragement is not to use your words to exalt yourself. Yn lle hynny, yn eu defnyddio i wneud yr hyn yr ydych eu creu i wneud-roi gogoniant i Dduw. Mae i gyd yn perthyn iddo beth bynnag.

Gadewch i ni weddïo.

    This was a wonderful read. Even in our humility, we need to be careful that we are not doing to make men see that we are humble, which in itself is prideful.
    It explains why the Greek philosophers did not believe that humility was a virtue because many can fake it.
    Diolch am Rhannu.

    I don’t mean to throw Trip under the bus or have any intention in starting a debate online. I only ask for clarification. I am a recent graduate looking for a job. How do we not speak proudly in a job interview where we have to in some way be comfortable about explaining the good achievements to possible employers?

    • trip Leeateb

      Hey Jason
      You’re not throwing me under the bus bro! I think that’s a great question. As I said above, proud speech is when you use your words to exalt yourself. It’s when you refuse to acknowledge God as Sovereign and deserving of the glory.

      You can explain your achievements and convince someone you’d do a good job without robbing God of His glory (after all, our devotion to Him should lead us to work with excellence). You don’t have to sayto God be the gloryafter every sentence, but you should do it all with a humble posture recognizing God as the giver of all good gifts. There’s a big difference between humbly pointing to your competence or arrogantly boasting. Make sense?

      • Jesseateb

        How, in a culture that frowns upon Christian values being expressed, are we suppose to get, and hold an honest paying job, without our pride getting the best of us? I’m also not trying to throw you under the bus and find faults, but as a teenager who wants desperately to live anunashamed lifestyleand spread the gospel in everything they do, I also need a job. I think the problem is not being able to express our self at a workplace without the fear of being fired.

  8. johnateb

    Jason,
    Like he said, speaking proudly isn’t just stating facts. It’s seeking to exalt yourself instead of God. You can convince someone you’d do a good job, without robbing God of the glory he deserves for your skill and excellent work

  9. DaughterofGodateb

    I am having a hard time with this quote: “Pan fyddwch yn meddwl yn eich calon eich bod yn haeddu gogoniant, that itself is a sin.When I do something excellently, I desire a pat on the back, a word of encouragement, or some indication that my work is received as excellent. We praise athletes and sports teams tirelessly, and our entire world operates on awards and platforms that honor excellence. So how do I practically ‘deadenthis desire of mine when, honestly, I don’t want to? I guess just by, in our hearts, acknowledging that our excellence and the work of our hands comes from Him, and attributing all accolades we receive to Him.

  10. Michaelateb

    I just want to take this opportunity to thank you (trip Lee) for letting God use you to glorify him. Me and my wife really enjoy your music. Our favorite song of course isGood Thing”. I read that you discontinued making music to further pursue your ministry, is this true? We need more rappers like you bro.

  11. JBateb

    Trip I agree with most of everything you mentioned in this blog regarding the value of our words except the statement you made thatGod gives and takes away and he distributes and withholds”. God is 100% da! There is not an ounce of bad in him to try to do harm or take anything away from us. Satan steals (takes/withholds), kills, and destroys. We as believers (or non-believers) do it to ourselves by disobeying (or being ignorant of) the spiritual standard God has already set on the earth. God hates pride primarily because it causes a blockage to receive the full goodness he so dearly wants us to have which can give Satan (and his forces) legal right to come in and capitalize on our prideful ways. This is not hate speech or trying to talk down to you but an open dialogue which I believe is the benefit of a blog.

    • trip Leeateb

      Hey JB
      Thanks for reading! And for your encouraging words. I agree with you that God is 100% da. There’s no doubt about that. But that doesn’t mean He doesn’t take away. What about Job 1:21? Some of what I said above was an exact quotation from that verse. “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised.”

      So God does take away, and He’s still good. The beautiful thing is, God uses even bad things for good in the lives of His people. Rhufeiniaid 8:28 is a good example of this. I may write a whole post on this so I can make it more clear. Thanks again for reading!

    Jesse,
    As Trip mentioned, God knows all. Whether you give God glory out loud or take credit for your accomplishments out loud, God knows who your heart is giving glory to. Speaking to God’s glory aloud can also be pride speech if your heart is not truly giving glory to God. When we constantly speak of God’s glory around nonbelievers, we are like Peninnah and the nonbelievers are like Hannah. As Christians we have a tendency to feel threatened when we cannot openly praise God. Among nonbelievers we are like Penenniah with a spiritual blessing instead of children and the nonbelievers are Hannah that are left without such blessings as Hannah was without children. What we feel is praise to God, is actually boasting of our blessings. We must be ready to give praise to God at all times but we must not forget about the lost souls who choose not be with Him. You can take recognition of your accomplishments and even take responsibility without taking glory away from God. You received those blessings because you chose to walk His path. Give God glory in your heart, meddyliau, and prayers. Your words are just that, words. Never lie either. If an interviewer were to ask how you’ve done the things you’ve done, use the word faith. Faith is your choice, by your choice God has chosen to bless you, by giving glory to god for those blessings He will continue to do so. On another note, if you are struggling to find work try to reach out to God even more.

    This is a message I definitely needed to hear. I find myself battling with self-righteousness even on Facebook posts that are about God. I guess I need to look deep into my motives for everything I do. My brothers and sisters in Christ, if y’all would, pray for me!

  14. Meganateb

    thanks so much for sharing your messages. i’m 14 and my family doesn’t go to church so i really need this and other Christian resources and stuff to help me figure out what’s what about faith if that makes any sense so thank you for sharing its really helpful and encouraging.

  15. JBateb

    Dig that Trip. Appreciate the feedback bro but unfortunately we’ll have to agree to disagree on this one. Lol.. There is a verse in Job that statesGod gives and he takes awaybut it was the words of Job not God. Job was righteous and blameless in the sight of the Lord but the moment he spoke those words it came from an ignorant point of view of how he perceived God operated. Reading through the rest of Job (specifically chapters 38-41) God speaks to Job about how ignorant he has spoken of him and asks him questions regarding his assumptions. In Job 42:3 (NIRV) Job replied to God and said: “You asked me, ‘Who do you think you are to disagree with my plans? You do not know what you are talking about.I spoke about things I didn’t completely understand. I talked about things that were too wonderful for me to know.Then in the 6th verse Job said: “So I hate myself. I’m really sorry for what I said about you. That’s why I’m sitting in dust and ashes.After he repented that’s when things started to go real well for him again. God wanted him to see he didn’t take away all his stuff (it was Satan) and it was the fear Job displayed in the beginning of the book that allowed Satan access to enter his life. Trip I don’t want to make a show of our conversation on the ‘comment sectionso if you see necessary just contact my email for reply. I admire your talent and your heart to serve God man. Later
