Encántame nenos. Unha das razóns polas que me encantan os nenos é porque nos mostran a nós mesmos. Son como pequenos espellos. Deixe-me dicir o que quero dicir. Os nenos teñen practicamente todos os mesmos problemas que temos, pero estes problemas son só máis evidente, porque eles non saben como ocultar-los aínda. Isto é moi claro cando os nenos fan cousas que non se quere facer.
Xa viu un toque miúdo algo que non se quere para tocar? Mirarán ao seu redor para ver se o buscas. Eles non lles importa se outro neno está mirando; eles simplemente non queren adulto ou os pais para ver. Por que fan isto, aínda? Porque saben que estás ao mando, e eles non queren que descubre porque saben que é o único que ten que responder a.
Os adultos son o mesmo. Moitas veces estamos ben con facer cousas que non debemos facer, sempre que a persoa que ten que responder a non saber. Está feliz para acelerar ata ver policiais fronte. Quizais nós estamos contentos de deixar o traballo cedo, sempre que o noso xefe non saber. 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 sexa a autoridade que ten que responder a.
en 1 Samuel 2, Hannah prays in response to the birth of her son Samuel. And in this prayer, ela avisa si para non cometer un pecado particular, porque o seu xuíz está a asistir. Veña comigo ata 1 capítulo Samuel 2, verso 3.
Non seguir falando tan orgullosos ou deixe a súa boca fala tal arrogancia, porque o Señor é un Deus que sabe, e por el actos son pesados.
(1 Samuel 2:3)
neste texto, Hannah nos advirte contra o discurso arrogante, because God will find out and He’ll hold us accountable for it. Iso é o que eu creo que o punto principal deste verso é: If you talk proudly, vai ter que responder a Deus por el.
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, por que é importante para Deus, and He’s the One you have to answer to. We won’t finally answer to our parents, ou os nosos amigos, ou os nosos pastores, pero a Deus.
Con isto en mente, Eu quero facer algunhas preguntas para comprender mellor o texto.
Pregunta 1: Que significa para falar Orgullosos?
Significa usar as súas palabras para exaltar a si mesmo.
Now typically we would think of self-exalting words as just simply bragging about how amazing we are, pero hai moitas formas de falar con orgullo. E eu creo que unha das formas que Hannah ten en conta é o que vemos no capítulo 1.
Hannah was the wife of a man named Elkanah. She wasn’t his only wife though. Tiña unha muller cuxo nome era Penina. Penina tiña fillos, porén Ana era estéril. E Penina sería basicamente insultar Hannah sobre el. E por mor da súa esterilidade e este Hannah provocando indignei e ela choraría.
Coido que Penina é un exemplo do discurso arrogante Hannah nos advirte contra. Penina non estaba só indica o feito de que ela tiña fillos. Ela non estaba só tentando lembrar Hannah dos feitos. 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, que non era verdade. Scripture clearly says that children are a gift from the Lord. Peninnah was talking proudly, e ela tería que responder a Deus por el.
Formas Falamos Orgullosos
Quere o recoñezamos ou non, 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 non estamos louvando a Deus por el; the goal is making ourselves look better. I’ve caught myself doing this on many occasions. Quizais correr a un vello amigo e me o que eu teño feito preguntar. Podería dicir rap, pero eu prefiro apuntar premios ou outras realizacións.
2. Ou como sobre as cousas que din sobre os outros? Sometimes we slander others. Queremos pintar los nunha luz mala, entón imos ollar bo. Maybe at work we point out that a particular co-worker is pretty lazy, de xeito que as persoas van notar a diferenza entre vostedes dous. Ou que en vez de ser amable cos outros, we’re self-righteous. We stand as a judge over them, porque nos fai sentir mellor sobre as nosas realizacións espirituais. Iso é o discurso arrogante.
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.
Algúns deses exemplos son máis evidentes que outros. Entón, como vostede sabe se é? O que separa o discurso orgulloso dos feitos afirmando? Talking proudly is when you don’t acknowledge God as the One who’s sovereign and deserving of glory, no seu corazón ou as propias palabras. E cando facemos iso, tomamos gloria que pertence a Deus.
As súas palabras poden recoñecer Deus, pero o que sobre o seu corazón? Other people may not be able to tell the difference, but Hannah reminds us that the Lord is a God who knows. E se usarmos as nosas palabras para exaltar a nós mesmos, Nós imos ter que responder a el por iso.
No texto Hannah nos di para non falar con orgullo, e entón ela dinos por que: porque o Señor é un Deus que coñece e pesa obras.
Pregunta 2: Por que temos que responder a Deus para o discurso orgulloso?
Porque é un ataque a súa gloria.
Se só unha desas dúas últimas frases era verdade, it would change a lot. If God knew, pero non foi o xuíz, or if God was the judge but didn’t know. But the perfectly just Judge is also the all-knowing God. Non só Deus descubrir, Está escoitando. 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. el sabe. E se atacar a súa gloria co discurso orgulloso, el saberá.
roubando a Deus
Se eu fose para ir na súa conta bancaria, e ter diñeiro e aplicala lo para a miña conta, é que o roubo? Of course it is. Estou tomando algo que pertence a vostede, e aplicala lo para min mesmo. Non podo darme algún do seu diñeiro sen sacalo de ti. E é malo, porque pertence a vostede.
Cando os seres humanos tentan dar gloria, they rob God of His. You cannot ascribe to yourself praise and glory, sen roubar de Deus. Pride is an attack on God’s glory. por? Because an overestimation of self comes from an underestimation of God. Deixe-me dicir iso de novo: unha superestimação da auto vén dunha subestimação de Deus. E como vemos na 1 Samuel 1, Esta subestimação de Deus, Tamén leva a unha subestimação dos outros. Entón pensar moi ben de nós mesmos vén pensando moi humilde de Deus, e leva a pensar moi humilde doutros.
Penina foi enganado. Ela superestimou-se, colocándose no trono Sovereign, as if she opened her own womb. And we’re often guilty of the same. Pensamos que somos os únicos que deben recibir crédito para que a promoción, ou aquelas nenos ben comportadas, ou a nosa situación financeira. si, Deus recompensará noso traballo duro, but that doesn’t guarantee anything. God’s will is the real deciding factor in every situation. O que importa, finalmente, non é a forza, nosa sabedoría, ou incluso a nosa fidelidade.
So pride is wrong. All of us have some pride in our hearts that we must fight. Cando pensa no seu corazón que merece gloria, that itself is a sin. But prideful speech is taking it to another level. How could we, como seres humanos pecaminosos, teñen a audacia, non só de pensar que somos dignos da gloria de Deus, pero para realmente presenta-lo desa forma para os outros? To try to convince others to give us the glory that belongs to God alone. Talking proudly is like not only robbing someone, pero dicindo a todos sobre iso e fomentando-os a facer o mesmo.
O único é, 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. Que é por iso que Hannah di que non hai que facelo.
discurso Prideful é escoller unha loita con Deus, which is why it’s inconsistent with the life of a believer. Como escoitamos esta mañá, "Deus resiste aos soberbios, pero dá graza aos humildes. "
Se non estamos en Cristo, nosas palabras orgullosas, 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 coñece-lo. Abandonar o seu pecado, and throw yourself on His mercy. He was incredibly humble—humble enough to die so that sinners like you and me can live. El levantouse da sepultura con todo o poder, e chama os homes para segui-Lo. Queremos moito de falar contigo máis sobre iso máis tarde.
Pero, como cristiáns, o que iso supón para os nosos actos a seren pesados? 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. Cando estivermos ante Deus, 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.
tamén, we want to please the Father. Of course He’s pleased with us in Christ, pero queremos que estea satisfeito coas nosas boas obras que saen da fe en Cristo. Queremos agradar noso Deus amoroso.
Non debemos permitir que as palabras arrogantes de vir das nosas bocas. E aínda que teremos que responder a Deus polo noso discurso orgulloso, debemos louvar a Deus que os nosos pecados son cubertos en Cristo.
Polo tanto, se queremos que Deus sexa glorificado por nosa fala, como é que imos loitar contra esa conversa arrogante?
Pregunta 3: Como nós loitamos Speech orgulloso?
Facemos isto por regozijando en Deus.
Debemos vixiar noso discurso, but that’s not enough. It’s like telling someone with a cold the solution is just to hold their sneeze in. non, a enfermidade é o que ten que ser atacado.
The proud heart rejoices in itself. But the humble heart rejoices in God. Olle para as primeiras palabras da oración de Ana en verso 1: “My heart rejoices in the Lord.” Hannah shows us the proper response to the Lord’s blessing. Non só regozijando-se o que o Señor deu, pero no Doante propio. A nosa resposta podería estar orgullosos, mais en vez diso debe producir humildade en nós, porque estamos a recibir un agasallo de Deus
God gives and takes away. God distributes and withholds. Pero fai todo para o noso ben e súa gloria. We falter when we begin to depend on those things too much. Rejoicing in God kills both pride and hopelessness.
Como se alegrar en Deus? Do what it takes to remind yourself who’s behind everything. Praise God when you receive that check. É por iso que damos grazas a Deus antes da nosa comida. Remembering that it’s arrogant to assume our plans will always go forth. Diga Señor permitindo. Give glory to God when others congratulate you on your accomplishments. Non por un minuto permitir que o seu corazón para tomar crédito. Assist súa intervención arrogante. Atopar as raíces de orgullo no seu corazón.
Cada un de nós foi dada unha oportunidade incrible con cada palabra que falamos. Comezamos a usar as nosas palabras para glorificar a Deus que nos creou. Comezamos a usar as nosas palabras para axudar a outros a ver a Deus polo glorioso Señor que El é.
So my encouragement is not to use your words to exalt yourself. en vez, usalos para facer o que se creou para facerse dar gloria a Deus. Todo pertence a el de calquera maneira.
This was so refreshing and convicting. Moitas grazas! I’ve got some studying to do to build my convictions on this for sure.
dear lord,our rejoice in for you alone deserve all the glory.help us lord to rejoice in you always and not to rob you of your glory and may we all be humbled before. Forgive us for hurting you and people when we speak with pride. Please dear help to be more conscience with the things we say…Amén
the Creator, none’s greater than the Savior game-changer/ demon-slayer with no need to be a player
Man the introduction pulled me in…it 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! Graza e Paz!
So nourishing! Grazas! Encántame isto: “Talking proudly is when you don’t acknowledge God as the One who’s sovereign and deserving of glory, no seu corazón ou as propias palabras. E cando facemos iso, tomamos gloria que pertence a Deus” and this:”Cando estivermos ante Deus, 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.”
The Lord used you to Encourage me with HIS WORD… An Thass Good News
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.
Grazas 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?
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 “to God be the glory” 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?
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 an “unashamed lifestyle” and 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.
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
I am having a hard time with this quote: “Cando pensa no seu corazón que merece 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 ‘deaden’ this desire of mine when, honestamente, 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 “O bo”. I read that you discontinued making music to further pursue your ministry, is this true? We need more rappers like you bro.
Trip I agree with most of everything you mentioned in this blog regarding the value of our words except the statement you made that “God 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.
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!
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, pensamentos, 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!
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.
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 states “God gives and he takes away” but 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 section’ so if you see necessary just contact my email for reply. I admire your talent and your heart to serve God man. Later
