Proud Speech agus glòir Dhè

Ro-ràdh

I love minn. Aon de na h-adhbharan I love minn air sgàth 's iad a' sealltainn dhuinn fhìn. Tha iad mar bheag sgàthain. Innsidh mi dhut dè a tha mi a 'ciallachadh. Kids tha cha mhòr a h-uile h-aon de na duilgheadasan a tha againne, ach tha na trioblaidean sin dìreach tòrr nas follaisiche seach gu bheil iad, chan eil fhios ciamar a fhalach iad fathast. Tha seo glè shoilleir nuair a minn rudan a dhèanamh nach eil iad coltach ri dhèanamh.

Am faca tu riamh meann fios rudeigin nach eil iad ag ràdh gu beantuinn? Bidh iad a 'coimhead mun cuairt fhaicinn ma tha thu a' coimhead. Chan eil iad a 'gabhail cùram ma eile meann a' coimhead; iad dìreach nach eil ag iarraidh inbhich no pàrantan fhaicinn. Carson a tha iad a 'dèanamh sin, ged? Seach gu bheil fios aca thu os cionn, agus chan eil iad ag iarraidh oirbh a lorg a-mach a chionn 's tha fios aca thu an aon aca a fhreagairt gu.

Inbhich a tha air an aon dòigh. Gu tric tha sinn OK le bhith a 'dèanamh rudan a tha sinn chan eil còir agad a dhèanamh, cho fada 'sa tha an neach a tha againn a fhreagairt gu Chan eil faighinn a-mach. Tha thu toilichte cabhag gus am faic thu Cops adhart. 'S dòcha tha sinn toilichte a' fàgail an obair tràth fhad 'sa ar ceannard Chan eil faighinn a-mach. 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, mur e an t-ùghdarras feumaidh sinn freagairt gu.

Ann 1 Samuel 2, Hannah prays in response to the birth of her son Samuel. And in this prayer, i toirt rabhadh do chàch gun gealltainn aon pheacadh sònraichte, oir aca Judge tha a 'coimhead. Tionndaidh còmhla rium gu 1 Samuel caibideil 2, rann 3.

Chan eil a 'cumail a' bruidhinn cho pròiseil no leig le do bheul bruidhinn leithid arrogance, airson an Tighearna tha Dia aig a bheil fios, agus leis na gnìomhan a tha tomhas.
(1 Samuel 2:3)

Anns an teacsa, Hannah a 'toirt rabhadh dhuinn an aghaidh prideful òraid, because God will find out and He’ll hold us accountable for it. Sin a tha mi a 'smaoineachadh a' phrìomh phuing seo rann: If you talk proudly, Bidh agad ri freagairt ri Dia air a shon.

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, oir tha iad cudromach do Dhia, and He’s the One you have to answer to. We won’t finally answer to our parents, no ar caraidean, no ar n-aodhairean, ach do Dhia.

Le sin san amharc, Tha mi ag iarraidh ag iarraidh beagan cheistean a 'tuigsinn an teacsa nas fheàrr.

ceist 1: Dè tha ea 'ciallachadh bruidhinn Proudly?

Tha ea 'ciallachadh agad a chleachdadh airson faclan àrdaich fhèin.

Cùl-fhiosrachadh

Now typically we would think of self-exalting words as just simply bragging about how amazing we are, ach tha mòran dòighean gus bruidhinn le moit. Agus mi a 'smaointinn aon de na dòighean anns a bheil Hannah tha ann an inntinn tha sinn a' faicinn ann an caibideil 1.

Hannah was the wife of a man named Elkanah. She wasn’t his only wife though. Bha aon tuilleadh 'bhean aig a bheil an t-ainm a bh' Peninnah. Peninnah robh clann, ach Hannah B 'e neo-thorrach. Agus bhiodh Peninnah fìrinn, tàmailt a chuir Hannah mu dheidhinn. Agus air sgàth i lom is seo taunting Hannah Chaidh brònach agus bhiodh ia 'gal.

Mi a 'smaoineachadh Peninnah S e eisimpleir de na prideful òraid Hannah a' toirt rabhadh dhuinn aghaidh. Peninnah nach robh dìreach a 'comharrachadh gu bheil i aig an robh clann. Cha robh i dìreach a 'feuchainn ri cur an cuimhne Hannah na fìrinnean. 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 robh fìor. Scripture clearly says that children are a gift from the Lord. Peninnah was talking proudly, agus gum feumadh i a 'freagairt ri Dia air a shon.

Dòighean sinn a 'Bruidhinn Proudly

Co-dhiù a tha sinn ag aithneachadh no nach eil, 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 chan eil sinn a 'moladh Dhè air a shon; the goal is making ourselves look better. I’ve caught myself doing this on many occasions. 'S dòcha a' ruith ann an seann charaid agus iad a 'faighneachd dhomh dè mi air a bhith a' dèanamh. B 'urrainn dhomh a ràdh rapadh, ach b 'fheàrr leam a chomharrachadh duaisean no choileanaidhean eile.

2. No dè mu dheidhinn na rudan a tha sinn ag ràdh mu dhaoine eile? Sometimes we slander others. Tha sinn ag iarraidh a pheantadh dhaibh ann an droch solas, agus mar sin bidh sinn a 'coimhead math. Maybe at work we point out that a particular co-worker is pretty lazy, mar sin bidh daoine a 'mothachadh an diofar eadar thu dà. No 's dòcha an àite a bhith gràsmhor còmhla ri daoine eile, we’re self-righteous. We stand as a judge over them, oir tha ea 'toirt dhuinn faireachdainn nas fheàrr mu ar spioradail euchdan. 'S e sin an òraid 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.

Tha cuid de na h-eisimpleirean a tha nas follaisiche na daoine eile. Mar sin, ciamar a tha fhios agad, ma tha e? Dè sgaradh moiteil òraid bho ag ràdh fìrinnean? Talking proudly is when you don’t acknowledge God as the One who’s sovereign and deserving of glory, ann 'ur cridhe no na faclan fhèin. Agus nuair a tha sinn a 'dèanamh sin, sinn a 'gabhail ghlòir a bhuineas do Dhia.

Do faclan dòcha ag aideachadh Dhè, ach dè mu dheidhinn do chridhe? Other people may not be able to tell the difference, but Hannah reminds us that the Lord is a God who knows. Agus ma tha sinn a 'cleachdadh ar faclan àrdaich sinn fhìn, feumaidh sinn freagairt a ionnsuidh air a shon.

Anns an teacsa Hannah ag innse dhuinn gun a bhith a 'bruidhinn le moit, agus an uair sin tha i ag innse dhuinn carson a: oir tha 'n Tighearna Dia aig a bheil fios agus le cuideam ghnìomharan.

ceist 2: Carson a tha againn gus Freagair do Dhia air son Proud Speech?

Seach gur e ionnsaigh air a ghlòir.

Mas e aon den fheadhainn mu dheireadh a bha fìor dà abairtean, it would change a lot. If God knew, ach cha robh am britheamh, or if God was the judge but didn’t know. But the perfectly just Judge is also the all-knowing God. Chan ann a mhàin a bhios Dia a lorg a-mach, Tha e ag èisteachd. 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. Tha fios aige. Agus ma tha sinn ionnsaigh a thoirt air a ghlòir le moiteil às an òraid, Bidh e fios.

goid Dia

Ma bha mi airson a dhol a-steach air ur cunntas banca, agus a 'gabhail airgead agus airson sin a chur ri mo cunntas, 'S e sin a' goid? Of course it is. Tha mi a 'gabhail rudeigin a bhuineas dhan thu, agus cur a-steach e gu fhìn. Chan urrainn dhomh a thoirt dhomh fhìn sam bith agaibh airgead gun a bhith ga bhuat. Agus tha e ceàrr, oir tha ia 'buntainn riut.

Nuair a bhios daoine a 'feuchainn ri iad fèin a thoirt glòir, they rob God of His. You cannot ascribe to yourself praise and glory, gun goid bho Dhia. Pride is an attack on God’s glory. Carson? Because an overestimation of self comes from an underestimation of God. Leig dhomh a ràdh gu bheil a-rithist: an overestimation fèin a 'tighinn bho underestimation Dhè. Agus mar a chì sinn ann an 1 Samuel 1, seo underestimation Dhè, cuideachd a 'dol gu underestimation dhaoine eile. Mar sin, a 'smaoineachadh cus air leth fhìn a' tighinn bhon a 'smaoineachadh ro iriosal Dhè, agus a 'dol gu ro iriosal a' smaoineachadh dhaoine eile.

Peninnah Chaidh mearachd. Overestimated i fhèin le bhith a 'cur fhèin air an rìgh-chathair Dhè, as if she opened her own womb. And we’re often guilty of the same. Tha sinn a 'smaoineachadh gu bheil sinn air an fheadhainn a bu chòir creideas fhaighinn airson gum brosnaicheadh, no an fheadhainn modhail clann, no ar suidheachadh ionmhasail. Tha, Bheir Dia ar n-obair chruaidh a dhuaiseachadh, but that doesn’t guarantee anything. God’s will is the real deciding factor in every situation. Dè tha cudromach mu dheireadh Chan eil ar neart, ar gliocas, no fiù 's ar n-dhìlseachd.

Prideful Speech

So pride is wrong. All of us have some pride in our hearts that we must fight. Nuair a smaoinicheas tu ann 'ur cridhe gu bheil sibh airidh air glòir, that itself is a sin. But prideful speech is taking it to another level. How could we, mar peacach a cinne-daonna, tha an Audacity, chan ann a mhàin a 'smaoineachadh gu bheil sinn airidh air glòir Dhè, ach gu bheil e an làthair dòigh 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 a h-uile duine ag innse mu dheidhinn agus a 'brosnachadh dhaibh gus dèanamh na h-aon.

Tha an aon rud a th ', 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. Carson a tha Hannah ag ràdh nach bu chòir dhuinn a dhèanamh.

Prideful cainnt a tha a 'togail ann an sabaid le Dia, which is why it’s inconsistent with the life of a believer. Mar a chuala sinn 'sa' mhaduinn, "Dia an aghaidh na h-uaibhrich, ach a 'toirt gràis gu iriosal. "

Gnìomhasan tomhas

Ma tha sinn nach eil ann an Criosd, moiteil às ar faclan, 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, leigibh fios gu Him. Tionndaidh bho do pheacadh, and throw yourself on His mercy. He was incredibly humble—humble enough to die so that sinners like you and me can live. Dh'èirich e às an uaigh a h-uile cumhachd, agus gairmean fir ga leantainn. Bidh sinn a 'bruidhinn ri barrachd dhut mu dheidhinn sin an dèidh làimh.

Ach mar Chrìosdaidhean, dè tha ea 'ciallachadh airson ar n-euchdan a tomhas? 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 tha sinn a 'seasamh an làthair Dhè, 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.

cuideachd, we want to please the Father. Of course He’s pleased with us in Christ, ach tha sinn ag iarraidh gun a bhith toilichte le ar deadh oibre a thig a-mach à creidimh ann an Criosd. Tha sinn ag iarraidh gu toileachadh ar Dia a ghràdhachadh.

Cha bu chòir dhuinn leigeil le àrdanach faclan a thighinn bho ar beul. Agus ged a bhios againn gus freagairt a thoirt do Dhia air son ar moiteil às an òraid, bu chòir dhuinn a 'moladh Dhè gu bheil ar peacaidhean a tha air an còmhdach ann an Criosd.

Mar sin, ma tha sinn ag iarraidh Dia a bhith air a ghlòrachadh le ar cainnt, ciamar a tha sinn a 'sabaid seo àrdanach Deasbaireachd?

ceist 3: Ciamar a tha sinn Fight Proud Speech?

Tha sinn ga dhèanamh le bhith a 'deanamh gàirdeachais ann an Dia.

Bu chòir dhuinn coimhead ar cainnt, but that’s not enough. It’s like telling someone with a cold the solution is just to hold their sneeze in. Chan eil, 'S e an tinneas dè dh'fheumas a bhith a' toirt ionnsaigh.

The proud heart rejoices in itself. But the humble heart rejoices in God. Coimhead air a 'chiad faclan Hannah aig ùrnaigh ann an rann 1: “My heart rejoices in the Lord.” Hannah shows us the proper response to the Lord’s blessing. Chan e dìreach a 'deanamh gàirdeachais ann an dè thug an Tighearna, ach anns a 'toirt dhuinn Fhèin. Tha ar freagairt a dh'fhaodadh a bhith moiteil, ach an àite a bu chòir a dhèanamh ann an irioslachd dhuinn, oir tha sinn a 'faighinn tiodhlac o Dhia

God gives and takes away. God distributes and withholds. Ach tha e a 'dèanamh a h-uile e air son ar math agus a ghlòir. We falter when we begin to depend on those things too much. Rejoicing in God kills both pride and hopelessness.

Ciamar a tha sibh a 'dèanamh gàirdeachas ann an Dia? Do what it takes to remind yourself who’s behind everything. Praise God when you receive that check. 'S e seo carson a tha sinn a' toirt buidheachais do Dhia mus ar biadh. Remembering that it’s arrogant to assume our plans will always go forth. Ag ràdh Tighearna deònach. Give glory to God when others congratulate you on your accomplishments. Chan eil geàrr-chunntas airson cothrom a thoirt do chridhe a 'gabhail creideis. Watch agad prideful òraid. Lorg freumhan uaill ann 'ur cridhe.

Co-dhùnadh

Gach aon dhuinn a chaidh a thoirt cothrom iongantach le gach facal a tha sinn a 'bruidhinn. Sinn a 'faighinn a' cleachdadh ar faclan gu glòir an Dia, a rinn sinn. Sinn a 'faighinn a' cleachdadh ar faclan gu daoine eile a chuideachadh fhaicinn Dia air son an Tighearna glòrmhor gu bheil e.

So my encouragement is not to use your words to exalt yourself. An àite, cleachdadh dhaibh gus dèanamh dè tha thu a chruthachadh gus dèanamh-thoir iad gloir do Dhia. Tha h-uile a bhuineas do co-dhiù Him.

Leigeamaid guidheam.

    So nourishing! Tapadh leat! I love seo: “Talking proudly is when you don’t acknowledge God as the One who’s sovereign and deserving of glory, ann 'ur cridhe no na faclan fhèin. Agus nuair a tha sinn a 'dèanamh sin, sinn a 'gabhail ghlòir a bhuineas do Dhia” and this:”Nuair a tha sinn a 'seasamh an làthair Dhè, 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.Ceangalaichean BBC

    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.

    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 LeeCeangalaichean BBC

      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 say “do Dhia a bhi 'na glòir” after 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?

      • JesseCeangalaichean BBC

        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. IainCeangalaichean BBC

    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. DaughterofGodCeangalaichean BBC

    I am having a hard time with this quote: “Nuair a smaoinicheas tu ann 'ur cridhe gu bheil sibh airidh air glòir, 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, honest, 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.

  8. MichaelCeangalaichean BBC

    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 is “Math Thing”. I read that you discontinued making music to further pursue your ministry, is this true? We need more rappers like you bro.

  9. JBCeangalaichean BBC

    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% math! 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 LeeCeangalaichean BBC

      Hey JB
      Thanks for reading! And for your encouraging words. I agree with you that God is 100% math. 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. Ròmanaich 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!

      Trip

  10. RWCeangalaichean BBC

    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, smuaintean, 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.

  11. JonathanCeangalaichean BBC

    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. MeganCeangalaichean BBC

    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. JBCeangalaichean BBC

    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
