Fiera Parolado kaj la Gloro de Dio

Enkonduko

Mi amas infanojn. One of the reasons I love kids is because they show us ourselves. They’re like little mirrors. Lasu min diri al vi kion mi volas diri. Infanoj havas preskaux cxiujn el la samaj problemoj ni havas, sed tiuj problemoj estas nur multe pli evidenta ĉar ili ne scias kiel kaŝi ilin ankoraŭ. Tiu estas vere klara kiam infanoj fari aferojn ili ne laŭsupoze farendaĵoas.

Ĉu vi iam vidis infanon tuŝo io ili ne supozis tuŝi? They’ll look around to see if you’re looking. Ili ne zorgas se alia infano serĉas; Ili simple ne volas plenkreskuloj aŭ gepatroj vidi. Kial ili faras tion, kvankam? Because they know you’re in charge, kaj ili ne volas ke vi trovu ĉar ili scias ke vi estas la unu ili devas respondi al.

Adults are the same way. Often we’re OK with doing things we’re not supposed to do, tiel longe kiel la persono kiu devas respondi al ne ekscias. Vi ĝojas por akceli ĝis vi vidos policanoj antaŭen. Eble ni ĝojas forlasi laboron frue dum nia estro ne ekscias. 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, se ĝi estas la aŭtoritato kiu devas respondi al.

en 1 samuel 2, Hannah prays in response to the birth of her son Samuel. And in this prayer, ŝi avertas aliajn ne fari unu aparta peko, ĉar ilia Juĝisto rigardas. Turni min al 1 samuel ĉapitro 2, verso 3.

Ne interparolas tiel fiere aŭ via buŝo parolu tiajn aroganteco, cxar la Eternulo estas Dio kiu scias, kaj per li faroj estas pesita.
(1 samuel 2:3)

En ĉi tiu teksto, Hannah avertas nin kontraŭ fieraj parolado, because God will find out and He’ll hold us accountable for it. Tion mi opinias la ĉefa punkto de ĉi verso estas: If you talk proudly, vi devos respondi al Dio pri ĝi.

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, ĉar ili gravas al Dio, and He’s the One you have to answer to. We won’t finally answer to our parents, aŭ niaj amikoj, aŭ niaj paŝtistoj, sed al Dio.

Kun tio en menso, Mi volas demandi kelkajn demandojn por kompreni la tekston pli bone.

demando 1: Kion tio signifas Parolado Fiere?

Signifas uzi viajn vortojn altigi mem.

fono

Now typically we would think of self-exalting words as just simply bragging about how amazing we are, sed ekzistas multaj manieroj paroli fiere. Kaj mi kredas ke unu el la vojoj ke Hannah havas en menso estas kion ni vidos en ĉapitro 1.

Hannah was the wife of a man named Elkanah. She wasn’t his only wife though. Li havis unu pli edzinon kies nomo estis Penina. Penina havis infanojn, sed Ĥana estis senfrukta. Penina estus esence mokinciti Hannah pri ĝi. Kaj pereis sxia senfruktecon kaj ĉi mokante Hannah malgxojis kaj ŝi ploris.

Mi pensas Penina estas ekzemplo de la fieraj parolado Hannah avertas nin kontraŭ. Penina ne nur markante la fakton ke ŝi havis infanojn. Ŝi ne nur provas rememorigi Hannah de la faktoj. 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, kiu ne turnos. Scripture clearly says that children are a gift from the Lord. Peninnah was talking proudly, kaj ŝi devus respondi al Dio pri ĝi.

Vojoj Ni Parolado Fiere

Ĉu ni rekonas ĝin aŭ ne, 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. Sed ni ne laŭdante Dion pri ĝi; the goal is making ourselves look better. I’ve caught myself doing this on many occasions. Eble koliziante malnovan amikon kaj ili demandas al mi kion mi estis farante. Mi povus diri repado, sed mi preferus celi premioj aŭ aliaj atingoj.

2. Aŭ kiom pri la aferoj ni diras pri aliaj? Sometimes we slander others. Ni volas pentri ilin en malbona lumo, do ni rigardu bone. Maybe at work we point out that a particular co-worker is pretty lazy, por ke la homo rimarkos la diferencon inter vi du. Aŭ eble anstataŭ esti kompleza kun aliaj, we’re self-righteous. We stand as a judge over them, ĉar ĝi faras senti nin pli bona sur nia spirita plenumoj. Ke estas fieraj parolado.

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.

Iuj de ĉi tiuj ekzemploj estas pli evidenta ol aliaj. Do kiel vi scias se ĝi estas? Kio disigas fiera parolado de deklarado faktoj? Talking proudly is when you don’t acknowledge God as the One who’s sovereign and deserving of glory, en via koro aŭ la vortoj mem. Kiam ni fari tion, ni prenas gloron kiu apartenas al Dio.

Viajn vortojn agnoski Dion, Sed kio pri via koro? Other people may not be able to tell the difference, but Hannah reminds us that the Lord is a God who knows. Kaj se ni uzas niajn vortojn altigi mem, ni devos respondi al Li por tio.

En la teksto Hannah diras ni ne paroli fiere, kaj tiam ŝi diras ni kial: ĉar la Eternulo estas Dio, kiu scias kaj pezas agoj.

demando 2: Kial ni devas respondi al Dio pri Fiera Parolado?

Ĉar ĝi estas atako sur Lia gloro.

Se nur unu el tiuj lastaj du frazoj estas vera, it would change a lot. If God knew, sed ne estis la juĝisto, or if God was the judge but didn’t know. But the perfectly just Judge is also the all-knowing God. Ne nur estos Dio eltrovi, Li aŭskultante. 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. Li scias. Kaj se ni atakas Lia gloro kun fiera parolado, Li scias.

rabojn Dio

Se mi iros en vian bankokonton, kaj prenu monon kaj apliki ĝin al mia konto, Estas ke ŝtelo? Of course it is. Mi prenas ion, kio apartenas al vi, kaj aplikante ĝin al mi. Mi ne povas doni al mi iun el via mono sen preni ĝin de vi. Kaj ĝi estas malĝusta ĉar ĝi apartenas al vi.

Kiam homoj provos doni sin gloro, they rob God of His. You cannot ascribe to yourself praise and glory, sen ŝtelado de Dio. Pride is an attack on God’s glory. kial? Because an overestimation of self comes from an underestimation of God. Lasu min diri, ke denove: an overestimation de mem devenas subtakso de Dio. Kaj kiel oni vidas en 1 samuel 1, tiu subtakso de Dio, ankaŭ kondukas al subtakso de aliaj. Tiel pensante tro alte de ni mem devenas pensante tro humila de Dio, kaj kondukas al pensi tro humila inter aliaj.

Penina eraris. Ŝi sobreestimó sin metante sin sur la Suvereno trono, as if she opened her own womb. And we’re often guilty of the same. Ni pensas ke ni estas tiuj kiuj devas akiri krediton por tiu promocio, aŭ tiuj bonkondutajn, aŭ nia financa situacio. jes, Dio rekompencos nia laboremo, but that doesn’t guarantee anything. God’s will is the real deciding factor in every situation. Kio gravas fine ne estas nia forto, nia saĝo, aŭ eĉ nia fideleco.

fieraj Parolado

So pride is wrong. All of us have some pride in our hearts that we must fight. Kiam vi pensas en via koro ke vi meritas honoron, that itself is a sin. But prideful speech is taking it to another level. How could we, kiel peka homoj, havas la aŭdacon, ne nur pensi ni meritas Dia gloro, sed efektive prezenti ĝin tiel al aliuloj? To try to convince others to give us the glory that belongs to God alone. Talking proudly is like not only robbing someone, sed rakontanta ĉiuj pri ĝi kaj instigas ilin fari la saman.

La sola afero estas, 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. Kio estas kial Hannah diras ni devus fari tion.

Fieraj parolado estas pluki lukton kun Dio, which is why it’s inconsistent with the life of a believer. Kiel ni aŭdis hodiaŭ matene, "Dio kontrauxstaras al la fieruloj, sed donas gracon al la humila. "

faroj TEKEL

Se ni ne estas en Kristo, nia fiera vortoj, 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, bonvolu ekkoni Li. Forlasu vian pekon, and throw yourself on His mercy. He was incredibly humble—humble enough to die so that sinners like you and me can live. Li leviĝis el la tombo kun ĉiu potenco, kaj alvokoj viroj sekvi Lin. Ni ravus paroli kun vi pli pri tio poste.

Sed kiel kristanoj, kion ĝi signifas por nia agoj esti pesis? 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. Kiam ni staras antaŭ Dio, 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.

ankaŭ, we want to please the Father. Of course He’s pleased with us in Christ, sed ni volas Lin placxos niaj bonfaroj, kiuj elstaras el fido en Kristo. Ni volas komplezi niajn amanta Dio.

Ni ne permesos arogantaj vortoj veni el niaj buŝoj. Kaj kvankam ni devos respondi al Dio pri nia fiera parolado, ni devas laŭdi Dion ke niaj pekoj estas kovritaj en Kristo.

Do se ni volas Dio por esti glorata per nia parolo, kiel ni luktas ĉi aroganta diskuto?

demando 3: How Do We Fight Fiera Parolado?

Ni faru ĝin per ĝojo en Dio.

Ni viglu nia parolado, but that’s not enough. It’s like telling someone with a cold the solution is just to hold their sneeze in. neniu, la malsano estas kion devas esti atakitaj.

The proud heart rejoices in itself. But the humble heart rejoices in God. Rigardu la unuaj vortoj de Hannah preĝo en verso 1: “My heart rejoices in the Lord.” Hannah shows us the proper response to the Lord’s blessing. Ne nur singratuladon kion la Eternulo transdonis, sed en la donanto mem. Nia respondo povus esti fieraj, sed anstataŭe ĝi devus produkti humileco en ni, ĉar ni ricevas donacon de Dio

God gives and takes away. God distributes and withholds. Sed li faras ĉion por nia bono kaj Lia gloro. We falter when we begin to depend on those things too much. Rejoicing in God kills both pride and hopelessness.

Kiel vi gxuu Dio? Do what it takes to remind yourself who’s behind everything. Praise God when you receive that check. Tial ni dankas Dion antaux nia manĝaĵo. Remembering that it’s arrogant to assume our plans will always go forth. Diru Sinjoro pretas. Give glory to God when others congratulate you on your accomplishments. Ne por minuto permesi vian koron preni kredito. Spekti viajn fieraj parolado. Trovi la radikojn de fiero en via koro.

konkludo

Ĉiu unuopa unu el ni estas donita mirindan ŝancon kun ĉiu vorto ni paroli. Ni preni uzi nian vortoj glori Dion kiu nin. Ni preni uzi nian vortojn helpi aliajn vidos Dion pro la glora Sinjoro, ke Li estas.

So my encouragement is not to use your words to exalt yourself. anstataŭe, uzi ilin por fari kion vi kreis por fari-gloru Dion. Ĉion apartenas al Li ĉiuokaze.

Ni preĝu.

  5. Eveno M.Respondu

    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.
    Thanks for sharing.

    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?

    • vojaĝo LegasRespondu

      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?

      • JesseRespondu

        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.

    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

  8. DaughterofGodRespondu

    I am having a hard time with this quote: “Kiam vi pensas en via koro ke vi meritas honoron, 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.

    I just want to take this opportunity to thank you (vojaĝo Legas) 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.

  10. JBRespondu

    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% good! 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.

    • vojaĝo LegasRespondu

      Hey JB
      Thanks for reading! And for your encouraging words. I agree with you that God is 100% good. 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. romanoj 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, pensoj, 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!

    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.

  14. JBRespondu

    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
