Urlabhra bródúil agus an Glory Dé

Réamhrá

Is breá liom páistí. One of the reasons I love kids is because they show us ourselves. They’re like little mirrors. Lig dom a insint duit cad is ciall agam. Kids tá go leor i bhfad gach ceann de na fadhbanna céanna atá againn, ach tá na fadhbanna ach a lán níos soiléire toisc nach bhfuil a fhios acu conas a cheilt orthu go fóill. Tá sé seo i ndáiríre soiléir nuair a dhéanann páistí rudaí nach mbíonn siad ceaptha a dhéanamh.

An bhfaca tú riamh le rud éigin kid dteagmháil nár chóir dóibh a dteagmháil? They’ll look around to see if you’re looking. Níl siad cúram má tá kid eile ag; siad ní hamháin ag iarraidh daoine fásta nó tuismitheoirí a fheiceáil. Cén fáth a bhfuil siad é sin, cé? Because they know you’re in charge, agus nach bhfuil siad ag iarraidh leat a fháil amach mar a fhios acu go bhfuil tú ar an duine go bhfuil siad freagra do thabhairt.

Adults are the same way. Often we’re OK with doing things we’re not supposed to do, chomh fada leis an duine ní mór dúinn a fhreagairt a ní a fháil amach. Tá tú sásta chun dlús dtí go bhfeiceann tú próistí romhainn. B'fhéidir go bhfuil muid sásta obair a fhágáil go luath chomh fada is nach bhfuil ár Boss a fháil amach. 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, ach amháin má tá sé an t-údarás atá againn freagra do thabhairt.

i 1 Samuel 2, Hannah prays in response to the birth of her son Samuel. And in this prayer, warns sí daoine eile le nach ndéanfaidh sin ceann ar leith, toisc go bhfuil a n-Breitheamh ag breathnú. Cas liom chun 1 Samuel chaibidil 2, véarsa 3.

Ná choinneáil ag caint chomh proudly nó lig do bhéal a labhairt arrogance den sórt, an Tiarna is Dia a bhfuil aithne, agus sé gníomhais a mheá.
(1 Samuel 2:3)

Sa téacs, Hannah warns dúinn aghaidh cainte prideful, because God will find out and He’ll hold us accountable for it. Go bhfuil an méid Sílim go bhfuil an pointe is mó de véarsa: If you talk proudly, go mbainfidh tú a fhreagairt do Dhia chun é.

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, toisc ábhar siad le Dia, and He’s the One you have to answer to. We won’t finally answer to our parents, nó ár gcairde, nó ar ár pastors, ach le Dia.

Agus sin san áireamh, Ba mhaith liom a iarraidh ar roinnt ceisteanna chun tuiscint ar an téacs níos fearr.

Ceist 1: Cad a dtugann sé Meán Chun Plé Proudly?

Ciallaíonn sé a úsáid do chuid focal a exalt féin.

cúlra

Now typically we would think of self-exalting words as just simply bragging about how amazing we are, ach tá go leor bealaí chun labhairt proudly. Agus sílim cheann de na bealaí go bhfuil Hannah san áireamh an méid a fheiceann muid i gcaibidil 1.

Hannah was the wife of a man named Elkanah. She wasn’t his only wife though. Bhí bean chéile amháin níos mó darbh ainm Peninnah. Bhí Peninnah leanaí, ach bhí Hannah barren. Agus ba mhaith Peninnah taunt bunúsach Hannah faoi. Agus mar gheall ar a barrenness agus Hannah magadh a bhí grieved agus go mbeadh sí gol.

Sílim go bhfuil Peninnah sampla den óráid prideful Hannah warns dúinn aghaidh. Ní raibh Peninnah ag cur in iúl go díreach amach ar an bhfíric go raibh sí leanaí. Ní raibh sí ag iarraidh ach a chur i gcuimhne Hannah ar na fíricí. 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, nach raibh fíor. Scripture clearly says that children are a gift from the Lord. Peninnah was talking proudly, agus go mbeadh sí a fhreagairt do Dhia chun é.

Bealaí Plé againn Proudly

Cibé aithníonn linn é nó nach, 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. Ach nach bhfuil muid ag moladh Dé chun é; the goal is making ourselves look better. I’ve caught myself doing this on many occasions. B'fhéidir ag rith isteach sheanchara agus iarr siad dom cad tá mé ag déanamh. Raibh mé in ann a rá rapping, ach ba mhaith liom pointe in áit chun dámhachtainí nó éachtaí eile.

2. Nó conas mar gheall ar na rudaí a deirimid faoi dhaoine eile? Sometimes we slander others. Ba mhaith linn a phéinteáil leo i bhfianaise droch, mar sin beidh muid ag breathnú go maith. Maybe at work we point out that a particular co-worker is pretty lazy, ionas go mbeidh daoine faoi deara an difríocht idir tú dhá. Nó b'fhéidir in ionad a bheith gracious le daoine eile, we’re self-righteous. We stand as a judge over them, mar a dhéanann sé bhraitheann orainn níos fearr mar gheall ar ár n-éachtaí spioradálta. Is é sin óráid 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.

Tá cuid de na samplaí atá níos soiléire ná a chéile. Mar sin cén chaoi a fhios agat má tá sé? Cad separates óráid bródúil ó fíricí rá? Talking proudly is when you don’t acknowledge God as the One who’s sovereign and deserving of glory, i do chroí nó na focail féin. Agus nuair a dhéanann muid go bhfuil, a chur orainn ghlóir go mbaineann le Dia.

D'fhéadfadh do chuid focal aitheantas Dia, ach cad faoi do chroí? Other people may not be able to tell the difference, but Hannah reminds us that the Lord is a God who knows. Agus má úsáidimid ár focail a exalt féin, beidh orainn freagra do thabhairt dó chun é.

Sa téacs Insíonn Hannah dúinn gan labhairt proudly, agus ansin insíonn sí dúinn cén fáth: toisc go bhfuil an Tiarna Dia a bhfuil aithne aige agus meáchan gníomhais.

Ceist 2: Cén fáth a bhfuil muid An bhfuil a Freagair do Dhia do Urlabhra Bród?

Toisc go bhfuil sé ionsaí ar a ghlóir.

Má raibh ach ceann amháin de na dhá frásaí caite fíor, it would change a lot. If God knew, ach ní raibh an breitheamh, or if God was the judge but didn’t know. But the perfectly just Judge is also the all-knowing God. Ní bheidh ach Dia a fháil amach, Tá sé ag éisteacht. 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. Tá a fhios aige. Agus má ionsaí muid ag a ghlóir le urlabhra bródúil, Beidh a fhios aige.

robáil Dia

Má bhí mé ag dul isteach i do chuntas bainc, agus airgead a thógáil agus é maidir le mo chuntas, is é sin ghoid? Of course it is. Tá mé ag cur rud éigin go mbaineann a thabhairt duit, agus ag cur sé go féin. Ní féidir liom a thabhairt mé féin aon cheann de do chuid airgid gan á thógáil uait. Agus tá sé mícheart toisc go mbaineann sé a thabhairt duit.

Nuair a iarracht dhaoine a thabhairt iad féin a ghlóir, they rob God of His. You cannot ascribe to yourself praise and glory, gan ghoid ó Dhia. Pride is an attack on God’s glory. Cén fáth? Because an overestimation of self comes from an underestimation of God. Lig dom a rá go arís: Tagann an ró-mheastóireacht féin ó underestimation Dé. Agus mar a fheiceann muid i 1 Samuel 1, an fomheastachán Dé, mar thoradh freisin meastachán ró-íseal daoine eile. Mar sin, smaoineamh ar ró-ard de féin a thagann ó smaoineamh ró lowly Dé, agus mar thoradh ar smaoineamh ró lowly daoine eile.

Bhí dul amú Peninnah. overestimated sí í féin trí chur í féin ar an ríchathaoir Fhlaitheasacha, as if she opened her own womb. And we’re often guilty of the same. Is dóigh linn go bhfuil muid na cinn ba chóir a fháil creidmheasa le haghaidh sin a chur chun cinn, nó leis na leanaí dea-mhúinte, nó ar ár staid airgeadais. Is ea, Beidh Dia luach saothair ár n-obair chrua, but that doesn’t guarantee anything. God’s will is the real deciding factor in every situation. Cad nithe ar deireadh nach bhfuil ár neart, ár eagna, nó fiú ár dhílseacht.

Urlabhra prideful

So pride is wrong. All of us have some pride in our hearts that we must fight. Nuair a cheapann tú i do chroí a dul duit ghlóir, that itself is a sin. But prideful speech is taking it to another level. How could we, dhaoine chomh sinful, mbeadh an Audacity, ní hamháin le smaoineamh go bhfuil muid fiú ghlóir Dé, ach a chur i láthair i ndáiríre é an mbealach do dhaoine eile? To try to convince others to give us the glory that belongs to God alone. Talking proudly is like not only robbing someone, ach ag insint do gach duine mar gheall air agus iad a spreagadh chun an rud céanna a.

Is é an rud amháin, 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. Cé acu is an fáth a deir Hannah níor chóir dúinn é a dhéanamh.

Tá óráid prideful piocadh troid le Dia, which is why it’s inconsistent with the life of a believer. Mar chuala muid ar maidin, "Dia i gcoinne an bródúil, ach tugann cairde leis an humble. "

gníomhais Mheá

Más rud é nach táimid i gCríost, ár focail bródúil, 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, le do thoil a fháil ar an eolas dó. Cas ó do pheaca, and throw yourself on His mercy. He was incredibly humble—humble enough to die so that sinners like you and me can live. D'éirigh sé as an uaigh le gach cumhacht, agus glaonna fir a leanúint Eisean. Ba bhreá linn labhairt leat níos mó faoi sin ina dhiaidh sin.

Ach mar Críostaithe, cad is ciall le haghaidh ár gníomhais a mheá? 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. Nuair a bheith againn roimh Dhia, 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.

chomh maith leis sin, we want to please the Father. Of course He’s pleased with us in Christ, ach ba mhaith linn Eisean a bheith sásta leis ár n-oibreacha maith a thagann as an chreidimh i gCríost. Ba mhaith linn le do thoil ár n-Dia grámhar.

Níor chóir dúinn a cheadú focail sotalach le teacht as ár mbéal. Agus cé go beidh orainn a fhreagairt do Dhia as ár n-urlabhra bródúil, ba chóir dúinn moladh Dia go bhfuil ár bpeacaí folaithe i gCríost.

Mar sin, más mian linn Dia a a glorified ag ár n-urlabhra, conas is féidir linn ngleic an chaint sotalach?

Ceist 3: Conas is féidir linn comhrac Urlabhra Bród?

Déanaimid dó rejoicing i nDia.

Ba chóir dúinn féachaint ar ár cainte, but that’s not enough. It’s like telling someone with a cold the solution is just to hold their sneeze in. Níl, Is é an breoiteachta cad is gá a ionsaí.

The proud heart rejoices in itself. But the humble heart rejoices in God. Féach ar an chéad fhocail urnaí Hannah i véarsa 1: “My heart rejoices in the Lord.” Hannah shows us the proper response to the Lord’s blessing. Gan rejoicing díreach i méid an Tiarna a thabhairt, ach sa giver féin. D'fhéadfadh ár bhfreagra a bheith bródúil, ach ina ionad sin ba chóir é a tháirgeadh ag baint i dúinn, mar go bhfuil muid ag fáil bronntanas ó Dhia

God gives and takes away. God distributes and withholds. Ach a dhéanann sé é go léir le haghaidh ár maith agus a ghlóir. We falter when we begin to depend on those things too much. Rejoicing in God kills both pride and hopelessness.

Conas a dhéanann tú rejoice i nDia? Do what it takes to remind yourself who’s behind everything. Praise God when you receive that check. Sin é an fáth muid ag buíochas le Dia roimh ár mbia. Remembering that it’s arrogant to assume our plans will always go forth. Abair Thiarna sásta. Give glory to God when others congratulate you on your accomplishments. Ná feadh nóiméid ligean do chroí creidmheasa a ghlacadh. Féach ar do cainte prideful. Faigh na fréamhacha de bród i do chroí.

Mar fhocal scoir

Tá gach ceann amháin de dúinn deis tugtha iontach le gach focal a labhraíonn muid. Faighimid a bhaint as ár focail a Móraim an Dia a dhéanamh linn. Faighimid a bhaint as ár focail chun cabhrú le daoine eile a fheiceáil Dia don Tiarna glórmhar go bhfuil sé.

So my encouragement is not to use your words to exalt yourself. Ina áit sin, iad a úsáid go bhfuil tú cad a bhí chruthaigh tú a ghlóir dhéanamh-a thabhairt do Dhia. Baineann sí go léir a dó ar aon nós.

A ligean ar guí.

    Man the introduction pulled me init is the truth! Ever since I’ve have children of my own I see myself in them daily. The whole message you delivered blessed me! Grace agus Síocháin!

    So nourishing! Go raibh maith agat! Is breá liom seo: “Talking proudly is when you don’t acknowledge God as the One who’s sovereign and deserving of glory, i do chroí nó na focail féin. Agus nuair a dhéanann muid go bhfuil, a chur orainn ghlóir go mbaineann le Dia” and this:”Nuair a bheith againn roimh Dhia, 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.

  4. Eveno M.Freagra

    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.
    Go raibh maith agat do roinnt.

    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?

    • turas LeeFreagra

      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?

      • JesseFreagra

        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.

  6. JohnFreagra

    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

  7. DaughterofGodFreagra

    I am having a hard time with this quote: “Nuair a cheapann tú i do chroí a dul duit ghlóir, 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, go hionraic, 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 (turas Lee) for letting God use you to glorify him. Me and my wife really enjoy your music. Our favorite song of course is “Dea-rud”. I read that you discontinued making music to further pursue your ministry, is this true? We need more rappers like you bro.

  9. JBFreagra

    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.

    • turas LeeFreagra

      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. Rómhánaigh 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, smaointe, 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!

  12. MeganFreagra

    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.

  13. JBFreagra

    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
