Hobane ba tseba hore u ntse u e ikarabellang, 'me ha ba batle hore u ho fumana hore kaha baa tseba hore u motho eo ba mo lokela ho ikarabella ho.

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, ntle le haeba e 's bolaoli re lokela ho ikarabella ho.

(1 Samuel 2:3)

A temana ena, Hannah o re lemosa khahlanong ho bua boikhohomoso, because God will find out and He’ll hold us accountable for it. Ke seo ke nahana ntlha ka sehloohong ea temana ena ke: If you talk proudly, u tla ba le ho araba ho Molimo bakeng sa eona.

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, hobane ba tsotelle hore Molimo, and He’s the One you have to answer to. We won’t finally answer to our parents, kapa metsoalle ea rōna, kapa baruti ba rona, empa ho Molimo.

Ka lebaka leo, Ke batla ho botsa lipotso tse seng kae ho utloisisa taba e ngotsoeng bo ntlafale.

potso 1: Ho Bolela'ng ho bua le motlotlo?

Se bolela ho sebelisa mantsoe a hao ho phahamisa u ithata.

Background

Now typically we would think of self-exalting words as just simply bragging about how amazing we are, empa ho na le litsela tse ngata tsa ho bua ka boikhohomoso. 'Me ke nahana' ngoe ea litsela tseo Hannah na a nahanne ka ke seo re se bonang ka bona khaolong ea 1.

Hannah was the wife of a man named Elkanah. She wasn’t his only wife though. O ne a e mosali a le mong ho feta lebitso la hae e Penina. Penina o ne a bana, empa Hannah ne e le nyopa. 'Me Penina o ne a tla ha e le hantle nyelise Hannah ka eona. Me ka lebaka la nyopa hae 'me sena se Hannah nyelisang ile a sareloa' me a ne a tla lla.

Ke nahana Penina ke mohlala oa ho bua boikhohomoso Hannah re lemosa. Penina o ne a sa feela a bontša 'nete ea hore o na le bana. O ne a sa feela ba leka ho hopotsa Hannah ea litaba. 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, e neng e se 'nete. Scripture clearly says that children are a gift from the Lord. Peninnah was talking proudly, 'me o tla lokela ho ikarabella ho Molimo bakeng sa eona.

Litsela tsa Re Bua le motlotlo

Ebang rea hlokomela kapa che, 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. Empa re se ba rorisa Molimo bakeng sa eona; the goal is making ourselves look better. I’ve caught myself doing this on many occasions. Mohlomong matha hore e be motsoalle oa boholo-holo 'me ba botsa hore na ke' nile ka etsa. Ke ne ke re rapping, empa ke ne ke e-na le supa likhau kapa li finyeletseng tse ling.

2. Kapa kamoo ka lintho tseo re li buang ka ba bang? Sometimes we slander others. Re batla ho hlalosa bona ka leseli mpe, kahoo re tla sheba molemo. Maybe at work we point out that a particular co-worker is pretty lazy, e le hore batho ba tla hlokomela phapang pakeng tsa hao tse peli. Kapa mohlomong ho e-na ea ho ba mosa le ba bang, we’re self-righteous. We stand as a judge over them, hobane e etsa hore re ikutloa finyeletsoeng ea rōna ea moea. Eo ke boikhohomoso ho bua.

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.

E meng ea mehlala ena ke ea totobala joalo ho feta ba bang. Kahoo u tseba joang haeba e le? Seo a arola ho bua le motlotlo ho tloha bolelang linnete tse pakang seo? Talking proudly is when you don’t acknowledge God as the One who’s sovereign and deserving of glory, ka pelong ea hao kapa mantsoe a bona ka bobona. 'Me ha re etsa joalo, re nka khanya ea ka eo ke ea Molimo.

Mantsoe a hao a ka ananela Molimo, empa ho thoe'ng ka pelo ea hao? Other people may not be able to tell the difference, but Hannah reminds us that the Lord is a God who knows. 'Me haeba re sebelisa mantsoe a rōna ho iphahamisetsa, re tla lokela ho ikarabella ho Eena bakeng sa eona.

A temana ea Hannah o re bolella hore ba se ke bua ka boikhohomoso, 'me joale a re bolella hore na ke hobane'ng: hobane Morena ke Molimo ea tsebang le boima ka lebaka la liketso.

potso 2: Ke Hobane'ng ha re Lokela ho Araba ho Molimo bakeng sa Puo Ikhohomose?

Hobane e le ho hlasela khanya ea Hae.

Haeba a le mong feela ea ba lipoleloana peli tsa ho qetela e bile 'nete, it would change a lot. If God knew, empa e ne e se eena moahloli oa, or if God was the judge but didn’t know. But the perfectly just Judge is also the all-knowing God. Eseng feela Molimo o tla fumana, O mametse. 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. o tseba. 'Me haeba re hlasela khanya ea Hae ka puo ea ikhohomosang, O tla tseba.

tlatlapang Molimo

Haeba ke batla ho kena akhaonteng ya hao ya banka, 'me u nke chelete le sebelisa ho lebaka la ka, ke hore ho utsoa? Of course it is. Ke nka ntho e itseng eo ke sa u, le ho e sebelisa ka ipolella. Ke sitoa ho fana ka ipolella sena leha e le efe ea chelete ea hao ka ntle ho nka e tsoang ho uena. 'Me e se fosahetseng hobane e ke sa u.

Ha batho ba leka ho fana ka bona ka bobona khanya ea, they rob God of His. You cannot ascribe to yourself praise and glory, ntle ho utsoa tsoang ho Molimo. Pride is an attack on God’s glory. Ke hobane'ng ha? Because an overestimation of self comes from an underestimation of God. E-re ke re hape: e overestimation ho intša le tsoa e underestimation la Molimo. 'Me ha re ntse re bona 1 Samuel 1, sena underestimation la Molimo, Hape, ho lebisa sa underestimation batho ba bang. Kahoo nahana haholo nkeloa holimo ha rōna tsoa ho nahana haholo tlaase ea Molimo, le isang ho nahana haholo tlaase tsa ba bang.

Penina o ne a fositse. Eena ka boeena o overestimated ka ho beha eona ka boeona teroneng Musi, as if she opened her own womb. And we’re often guilty of the same. Re nahana hore re u bona ba lokela ho fumana tlotla ka seo ho phahamiswa hore, kapa batho bana hantle itšoere, kapa boemo bo itseng ya rona ya ditjhelete. E, Molimo o tla putsa mosebetsi oa rōna o boima, but that doesn’t guarantee anything. God’s will is the real deciding factor in every situation. Ntho ea bohlokoa qetella a e seng matla a rōna, bohlale ba rōna, kapa esita le ho tšepahala ha rona.

ikhohomosa Puo

So pride is wrong. All of us have some pride in our hearts that we must fight. Ha u nahana ka pelong ea hao hore u tšoaneloa ke khanya ea, that itself is a sin. But prideful speech is taking it to another level. How could we, batho joalokaha boetsalibe libopuoa, na le audacity, eseng feela hore le nahana hore re u tšoaneloang ke khanya ea Molimo, empa ho e le hantle hlahisa e ka tsela eo ho ba bang? To try to convince others to give us the glory that belongs to God alone. Talking proudly is like not only robbing someone, empa a bolella mong le e mong ka eona le ho ba khothalletsa ho etsa se tšoanang.

Ntho feela e, 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. E ke hobane'ng Hannah o re ha rea ​​lokela ho e etsa.

ferekanya puo ea ikhohomosa e picking loana le Molimo, which is why it’s inconsistent with the life of a believer. Ha re ntse re utloa hoseng hona, "Molimo o hanyetsa ba ikhohomosang, empa o fana ka mohau ho ba ikokobelitseng. "

liketso tsa boima ba

Haeba re u se ke ua ho Kreste, mantsoe a rōna a le motlotlo, 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, ka kōpo ho tseba Eena. Bohla sebe sa hao, and throw yourself on His mercy. He was incredibly humble—humble enough to die so that sinners like you and me can live. A ema mabitleng ka matla 'ohle, 'me o bitsa banna ho mo latela. Re rata ho bua le uena ka ho eketsehileng ka hore ka mor'a moo.

Empa ha e le Bakreste ba, e bolela eng bakeng sa liketso tsa rōna ho lekanngoa? 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. Ha re ema ka pel'a Molimo, 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.

Also, we want to please the Father. Of course He’s pleased with us in Christ, empa re batla Mo tla khahloa ke mesebetsi ea rōna e ntle eo u tsoe ho tumelo ho Kreste. Re batla ho khahlisa Molimo oa rōna ea lerato.

Ha rea ​​lokela ho lumella mantsoe a ikhohomosa ho tsoa melomong ea rona. 'Me le hoja re tla lokela ho ikarabella ho Molimo bakeng sa lipuo tsa rōna le motlotlo, re lokela ho rorisa Molimo e le hore libe tsa rōna li koahetsoe ho Kreste.

Kahoo, haeba re batla hore Molimo a ka tlotlisoa ke lipuo tsa rōna, hona re loane puo ena e ikakasang?

potso 3: Joang Re Loana Ikhohomose Puo?

Re etsa sena ka hore ke ba thabile ho Molimo.

Re lokela ho shebella lipuo tsa rōna, but that’s not enough. It’s like telling someone with a cold the solution is just to hold their sneeze in. No, ho kula ho ke seo lokela ho ba hlasela.

The proud heart rejoices in itself. But the humble heart rejoices in God. Sheba mantsoe a qalang ea thapelo ea Anna e temaneng 1: “My heart rejoices in the Lord.” Hannah shows us the proper response to the Lord’s blessing. Eseng feela ho thaba ka lebaka la seo Morena a le fileng, empa a Mofani Boeena. Tsela eo re ka ba le motlotlo, empa ho e-na e lokela ho hlahisa boikokobetso re, hobane re amohela mpho e tsoang ho Molimo

God gives and takes away. God distributes and withholds. Empa O etsa sena sohle ka tsela e molemo ea rōna 'me khanya ea Hae. We falter when we begin to depend on those things too much. Rejoicing in God kills both pride and hopelessness.

U thabe Molimo? Do what it takes to remind yourself who’s behind everything. Praise God when you receive that check. Sena ke ke hobane'ng ha re leboha Molimo ka pel'a lijo tsa rona. Remembering that it’s arrogant to assume our plans will always go forth. Re Morena ikemiselitse. Give glory to God when others congratulate you on your accomplishments. U se ke ua bakeng motsotso lumella pelo ea hao hore a nke ho reka ka mokitlane. Shebella tsela eo u buang boikhohomoso. Fumana metso ea motlotlo ka pelo ea hao.

fihlela qeto e

Mong le e mong le 'ngoe ea hore re filoe monyetla oa tsela e makatsang le e mong le e lentsoeng re bua. Re fumana ho sebelisa mantsoe a rōna ho tlotlisa Molimo ea re entseng. Re fumana ho sebelisa mantsoe a rōna ho thusa ba bang bona Molimo bakeng sa Morena ea khanyang hore ke.

So my encouragement is not to use your words to exalt yourself. Ho e-na, sebelisa hore ba se etse seo u se ile tsa bōptjoa ho etsa-tlotlisa Molimo. E 'ohle ke a Mo khomarela.

A re ke re rapela.

    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 leeReply

      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 “ho Molimo e be khanya ka” 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?

      • JesseReply

        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. JohnReply

    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. DaughterofGodReply

    I am having a hard time with this quote: “Ha u nahana ka pelong ea hao hore u tšoaneloa ke khanya ea, 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, ka botšepehi, 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 (Trip lee) for letting God use you to glorify him. Me and my wife really enjoy your music. Our favorite song of course is “Thing ntle”. I read that you discontinued making music to further pursue your ministry, is this true? We need more rappers like you bro.

  9. JBReply

    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% molemo! 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 leeReply

      Hey JB
      Thanks for reading! And for your encouraging words. I agree with you that God is 100% molemo. 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. Baroma 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, menahano, and prayers. Your words are just that, mantswe. 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.

  13. JBReply

    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
