Discurso orgullo y la gloria de Dios

Introducción

me encantan los niños. One of the reasons I love kids is because they show us ourselves. They’re like little mirrors. Déjeme decirle lo que quiero decir. Los niños tienen más o menos todos de los mismos problemas que tenemos, pero esos problemas son mucho más evidente, porque no saben cómo ocultar ellos todavía. Esto es muy claro cuando los niños hacen cosas que no se supone que debemos hacer.

¿Alguna vez ha visto a un niño algo táctil no se supone que tocar? They’ll look around to see if you’re looking. No les importa si otro niño está mirando; simplemente no quieren que los adultos o los padres para ver. Por qué hacen eso, aunque? Because they know you’re in charge, y que no quieren que usted descubra porque saben que eres el que ellos tienen que responder ante.

Adults are the same way. Often we’re OK with doing things we’re not supposed to do, siempre y cuando la persona que tenemos que responder ante no saber. Estás contento de acelerar hasta que vea policías por delante. Tal vez estamos encantados de salir antes del trabajo, siempre y cuando nuestro jefe no se entere. 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, a menos que sea la autoridad que tenemos que responder ante.

En 1 Samuel 2, Hannah prays in response to the birth of her son Samuel. And in this prayer, advierte que otros no cometer un pecado en particular, debido a que su juez está mirando. Vaya conmigo a 1 Samuel capítulo 2, verso 3.

No seguir hablando con tanto orgullo o deje que su boca hablan tal arrogancia, porque el Señor es un Dios que conoce, y por él hechos se pesan.
(1 Samuel 2:3)

En este texto, Hannah nos advierte contra las expresiones de soberbia, because God will find out and He’ll hold us accountable for it. Eso es lo que creo que el punto principal de este verso es: If you talk proudly, que tendrá que responder a Dios por lo.

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, porque son importantes para Dios, and He’s the One you have to answer to. We won’t finally answer to our parents, o nuestros amigos, o nuestros pastores, sino a Dios.

Con eso en mente, Quiero hacer algunas preguntas para entender mejor el texto.

Pregunta 1: ¿Qué significa Hablar con orgullo?

Significa utilizar sus palabras para exaltar a sí mismo.

Fondo

Now typically we would think of self-exalting words as just simply bragging about how amazing we are, pero hay muchas maneras de hablar con orgullo. Y creo que una de las formas en que Hannah tiene en mente es lo que vemos en el capítulo 1.

Hannah was the wife of a man named Elkanah. She wasn’t his only wife though. Tenía una esposa más que se llamaba Peniná. Penina tenía hijos, pero Ana era estéril. Y Penina sería básicamente burlarse de Hannah al respecto. Y a causa de su esterilidad y esto Hannah burlándose enemisté y ella lloraría.

Creo que Penina es un ejemplo de la expresión orgullosa Ana nos advierte contra. Penina no sólo estaba señalando el hecho de que ella tenía hijos. Ella no sólo estaba tratando de recordar a Hannah de los hechos. 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, lo cual no era cierto. Scripture clearly says that children are a gift from the Lord. Peninnah was talking proudly, y tendría que responder a Dios por ella.

Maneras hablamos con orgullo

Ya sea que lo reconozcamos o no, 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. Pero no estamos alabando a Dios por ella; the goal is making ourselves look better. I’ve caught myself doing this on many occasions. Tal vez se ejecuta con un viejo amigo y me lo he estado haciendo preguntar. Podría decir rap, pero yo prefiero señalar a los premios u otros logros.

2. ¿O qué tal las cosas que decimos de los demás? Sometimes we slander others. Queremos pintarlos en una mala luz, así que vamos a ver una buena. Maybe at work we point out that a particular co-worker is pretty lazy, para que la gente se dará cuenta de la diferencia entre ustedes dos. O tal vez en lugar de ser amable con los demás, we’re self-righteous. We stand as a judge over them, porque nos hace sentir mejor acerca de nuestros logros espirituales. Es decir el habla orgulloso.

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.

Algunos de estos ejemplos son más evidentes que otros. Así que, ¿cómo saber si se trata de? Lo que separa el habla orgulloso de los hechos que indican? Talking proudly is when you don’t acknowledge God as the One who’s sovereign and deserving of glory, en el corazón o las propias palabras. Y cuando lo hacemos, tomamos la gloria que pertenece a Dios.

Sus palabras pueden reconocer a Dios, pero ¿qué pasa con su corazón? Other people may not be able to tell the difference, but Hannah reminds us that the Lord is a God who knows. Y si usamos nuestras palabras para exaltar a nosotros mismos, vamos a tener que responder ante él por ella.

En el texto de Hannah nos dice que no hable con orgullo, y entonces ella nos cuenta por qué: porque el Señor es un Dios que conoce y pesa obras.

Pregunta 2: ¿Por qué tenemos que responder a Dios por Speech orgulloso?

Debido a que es un ataque a su gloria.

Si sólo una de esas dos últimas frases era cierto, it would change a lot. If God knew, pero no era el juez, or if God was the judge but didn’t know. But the perfectly just Judge is also the all-knowing God. No sólo va a encontrar a Dios, Está escuchando. 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. Él sabe. Y si atacamos su gloria con el habla orgulloso, Él sabrá.

robar a Dios

Si tuviera que entrar en su cuenta bancaria, y tomar el dinero y aplicarlo a mi cuenta, es que el robo? Of course it is. Estoy tomando algo que le pertenece a usted, y aplicándolo a mí. Yo no me puedo dar de su dinero sin tomarlo de usted. Y es malo porque te pertenece.

Cuando los seres humanos tratan de dar gloria a sí mismos, they rob God of His. You cannot ascribe to yourself praise and glory, sin robar de Dios. Pride is an attack on God’s glory. Por qué? Because an overestimation of self comes from an underestimation of God. Déjame decirlo de nuevo: una sobreestimación de sí mismo proviene de una subestimación de Dios. Y como vemos en 1 Samuel 1, Esta subestimación de Dios, también conduce a una subestimación de los demás. Así que pensar demasiado alto de nosotros mismos viene de pensar demasiado humilde de Dios, y conduce a pensar demasiado humilde de los demás.

Penina se equivocó. Ella misma sobreestimado poniendo a sí misma en el trono Sovereign, as if she opened her own womb. And we’re often guilty of the same. Creemos que somos los que deben recibir el crédito para que la promoción, o aquellos niños de buen comportamiento, o nuestra situación financiera. Sí, Dios recompensará a nuestro trabajo duro, but that doesn’t guarantee anything. God’s will is the real deciding factor in every situation. Lo que importa finalmente no es nuestra fuerza, nuestra sabiduría, o incluso nuestra fidelidad.

Discurso orgullosa

So pride is wrong. All of us have some pride in our hearts that we must fight. Cuando se piensa en su corazón que usted se merece la gloria, that itself is a sin. But prideful speech is taking it to another level. How could we, como seres humanos pecadores, tienen la audacia, no sólo pensar que somos dignos de la gloria de Dios, sino presentar realmente de ese modo a los demás? To try to convince others to give us the glory that belongs to God alone. Talking proudly is like not only robbing someone, pero diciendo a todos sobre él y animándolos a hacer lo mismo.

La única cosa es, 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. Es por ello que Hannah dice que no debemos hacerlo.

discurso orgulloso es recoger una pelea con Dios, which is why it’s inconsistent with the life of a believer. Como hemos escuchado esta mañana, "Dios resiste a los soberbios, pero da gracia a los humildes ".

Deeds pesaron

Si no estamos en Cristo, nuestras orgullosas palabras, 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, por favor, llegar a conocerlo. Dejen de pecar, and throw yourself on His mercy. He was incredibly humble—humble enough to die so that sinners like you and me can live. Se levantó de la tumba, con gran poder, y llama a los hombres a seguirlo. Nos encantaría hablar con usted más acerca de que después.

Pero como cristianos, lo que significa para nuestros hechos que sopesarse? 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. Cuando estamos delante de Dios, 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.

también, we want to please the Father. Of course He’s pleased with us in Christ, pero queremos que él sea satisfecho con nuestras buenas obras que salen de la fe en Cristo. Queremos agradar a nuestro amor a Dios.

No debemos permitir que las palabras arrogantes que vienen de la boca. Y aunque tendremos que responder a Dios por nuestra habla orgullosa, debemos alabar a Dios que nuestros pecados son cubiertos en Cristo.

Así que si queremos que Dios sea glorificado por nuestro discurso, ¿Cómo podemos luchar contra esta charla arrogante?

Pregunta 3: ¿Cómo nos habla orgulloso Fight?

Lo hacemos poniendo su alegría en Dios.

Debemos ver nuestro discurso, but that’s not enough. It’s like telling someone with a cold the solution is just to hold their sneeze in. No, la enfermedad es lo que necesita ser atacado.

The proud heart rejoices in itself. But the humble heart rejoices in God. Mira las primeras palabras de la oración de Ana en verso 1: “My heart rejoices in the Lord.” Hannah shows us the proper response to the Lord’s blessing. No sólo alegría en lo que el Señor ha dado, pero en el Dador Mismo. Nuestra respuesta podría estar orgulloso, pero en su lugar se debe producir en nosotros la humildad, porque estamos recibiendo un regalo de Dios

God gives and takes away. God distributes and withholds. Pero Él lo hace todo para nuestro bien y para su gloria. We falter when we begin to depend on those things too much. Rejoicing in God kills both pride and hopelessness.

¿Cómo se alegrará en Dios? Do what it takes to remind yourself who’s behind everything. Praise God when you receive that check. Es por ello que gracias a Dios antes de nuestra comida. Remembering that it’s arrogant to assume our plans will always go forth. Decir Señor lo permite. Give glory to God when others congratulate you on your accomplishments. No para un minuto permitan que su corazón tomar el crédito. Mire su discurso orgulloso. Encontrar las raíces de orgullo en su corazón.

Conclusión

Todos y cada uno de nosotros se le ha dado una oportunidad increíble con cada palabra que hablamos. Tenemos la oportunidad de usar nuestras palabras para glorificar al Dios que nos hizo. Tenemos la oportunidad de utilizar nuestras palabras para ayudar a otros a ver a Dios por el Señor glorioso que Él es.

So my encouragement is not to use your words to exalt yourself. En lugar, utilizarlos para hacer lo que fueron creados para hacer, dar gloria a Dios. Todo le pertenece a él de todos modos.

Oremos.

    So nourishing! Gracias! I love this: “Talking proudly is when you don’t acknowledge God as the One who’s sovereign and deserving of glory, en el corazón o las propias palabras. Y cuando lo hacemos, tomamos la gloria que pertenece a Dios” and this:”Cuando estamos delante de Dios, 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.

  5. Eveno M.Respuesta

    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.
    Gracias por compartir.

    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 LeeRespuesta

      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?

      • JesseRespuesta

        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.

  7. JohnRespuesta

    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. DaughterofGodRespuesta

    I am having a hard time with this quote: “Cuando se piensa en su corazón que usted se merece la gloria, 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.

  9. MiguelRespuesta

    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.

  10. JBRespuesta

    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.

    • Trip LeeRespuesta

      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. Romanos 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, pensamientos, and prayers. Your words are just that, palabras. 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!

  13. MeganRespuesta

    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. JBRespuesta

    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
