Volim djecu. Jedan od razloga zašto volim djecu, jer oni nam pokazuju sebe. Oni su poput malih zrcala. Dopustite mi da vam kažem što mislim. Djeca imaju prilično mnogo sve od istih problema koje imamo, ali ti problemi su samo puno očitije, jer oni ne znaju kako ih sakriti još. Ovo je stvarno jasno kada djeca rade ono što ne bi trebao raditi.
Jeste li ikada vidjeli dijete dodirne nešto što ne bi smio dirati? Oni će gledati okolo da li ste u potrazi. Nije ih briga ako je drugo dijete gleda; oni jednostavno ne žele odrasli ili roditelji vidjeti. Zašto oni to rade, iako? Jer oni znaju da ste u zadužen, i oni ne žele da saznate, jer oni znaju da si ti jedan oni moraju odgovarati.
Odrasli su na isti način. Često smo u redu s radi stvari koje ne bi trebali raditi, tako dugo dok osoba moramo odgovoriti ne bi saznali. Ti si drago da ubrza dok se ne vidi policajce ispred. Možda smo rado otići s posla rano dok god je naš šef ne bi saznali. 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, osim ako je organ koji moramo odgovoriti.
U 1 Samuel 2, Hannah prays in response to the birth of her son Samuel. And in this prayer, ona upozorava druge da ne počine neki poseban grijeh, jer im je sudac gleda. Uključite se sa mnom da se 1 Samuel poglavlje 2, stih 3.
Nemojte držati govori tako ponosno ili neka vaša usta govoriti takvu aroganciju, za Gospodina je Bog koji zna, i po njemu djela se važu.
(1 Samuel 2:3)
U ovom tekstu, Hannah nas upozorava protiv prideful govora, because God will find out and He’ll hold us accountable for it. To je ono što mislim da je glavna točka ovog stiha je: If you talk proudly, ćete morati odgovarati Bogu za to.
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, jer je to važno za Boga, and He’s the One you have to answer to. We won’t finally answer to our parents, ili naši prijatelji, ili naši pastiri, ali Bogu.
Imajući to na umu, Želim postaviti nekoliko pitanja kako bi razumjeli tekst bolje.
Pitanje 1: Što to znači razgovarati s ponosom?
To znači da koriste svoje riječi da se uzvisiti.
Now typically we would think of self-exalting words as just simply bragging about how amazing we are, ali postoji mnogo načina da se govori s ponosom. I mislim da je jedan od načina na koji je Hannah ima u vidu da je ono što smo vidjeli u poglavlju 1.
Hannah was the wife of a man named Elkanah. She wasn’t his only wife though. Imao je još jednu ženu po imenu Penina. Penina je imala djece, a Ana je bila nerotkinja. A Penina bi u osnovi podsmijeh Hannah o tome. A zbog svoje jalovosti i ovim podrugljivim Hannah se zabrinuo, a ona će plakati.
Mislim Penina je primjer prideful govora Hannah nas upozorava. Penina je ne samo istaknuti činjenicu da je imala djecu. Nije se samo pokušava podsjetiti Hannah činjenica. 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, što nije bila istina. Scripture clearly says that children are a gift from the Lord. Peninnah was talking proudly, a ona će morati odgovarati Bogu za to.
Putevi govorimo Ponosno
Sviđalo nam se to priznati ili ne, 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. Ali mi ne hvaleći Boga za njega; the goal is making ourselves look better. I’ve caught myself doing this on many occasions. Možda trčanje na starog prijatelja i oni su mi što sam radio pitati. Mogao sam reći repati, ali ja bih radije ukazati na nagrade ili drugim dostignućima.
2. Ili kako o onome što smo rekli o drugima? Sometimes we slander others. Želimo ih slikati u lošem svjetlu, pa ćemo izgledati dobro. Maybe at work we point out that a particular co-worker is pretty lazy, tako da će ljudi primijetiti razliku između vas dvoje. Ili možda umjesto da bude milostiv s drugima, we’re self-righteous. We stand as a judge over them, jer se čini da se osjećamo bolje o našim duhovnim postignućima. To je prideful govor.
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.
Neke od ovih primjera su očiti od drugih. Dakle, kako ćete znati ako je to? Ono što odvaja ponosnu govor od iznošenja činjenica? Talking proudly is when you don’t acknowledge God as the One who’s sovereign and deserving of glory, u svom srcu ili samih riječi. A kada to radimo, uzmemo slavu koja pripada Bogu.
Vaše riječi mogu priznati Boga, ali što je s tvojim srcem? Other people may not be able to tell the difference, but Hannah reminds us that the Lord is a God who knows. A ako ćemo koristiti naše riječi da se uzvisiti, ćemo morati odgovoriti na njega za to.
U tekstu Hannah nam govori da ne govorimo s ponosom, a onda nas je zašto govori: Jer Gospodin je Bog koji zna i teži djela.
Pitanje 2: Zašto moramo odgovoriti Bogu za Proud govora?
Budući da je napad na njegovu slavu.
Ako je samo jedan od onih posljednja dva izraza je istina, it would change a lot. If God knew, ali nije bio sudac, or if God was the judge but didn’t know. But the perfectly just Judge is also the all-knowing God. Bog ne samo da bi saznali, On sluša. 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. Zna. A ako ćemo napasti svoju slavu s ponosnim govorom, On će znati.
Ako sam bio da ide u svoj bankovni račun, i uzmi novac i primijeniti ga na moj račun, je da krade? Of course it is. Vodim nešto što pripada vama, i primjena na sebe. Ne mogu si priuštiti bilo koji od svog novca bez uzimanja od vas. I to je u redu, jer ona pripada vama.
Kad ljudska bića nastoje dati slavu, they rob God of His. You cannot ascribe to yourself praise and glory, bez kradu od Boga. Pride is an attack on God’s glory. Zašto? Because an overestimation of self comes from an underestimation of God. Dopustite mi reći da opet: preuveličavanja od sebe dolazi od podcjenjivanja Božju. A kao što smo vidjeli u 1 Samuel 1, ovo podcjenjivanje od Boga, također dovodi do podcjenjivanja drugih. Tako razmišljajući previše visoko mišljenje o sebi proizlazi iz razmišljanja previše ponizno Boga, i dovodi do razmišljanja previše ponizno o drugima.
Penina je pogriješio. Ona je sama precijenjen za sebe stavljanjem na Suverenog prijestolje, as if she opened her own womb. And we’re often guilty of the same. Mi mislimo da su ti koji bi trebali dobiti kredit za tu promociju, ili oni dobro odgojena djeca, ili naša financijska situacija. Da, Bog će nagraditi naš trud, but that doesn’t guarantee anything. God’s will is the real deciding factor in every situation. Ono što je važno na kraju nije naša snaga, naša mudrost, ili čak i naša vjernost.
So pride is wrong. All of us have some pride in our hearts that we must fight. Kada mislite da u svom srcu da zaslužujete slavu, that itself is a sin. But prideful speech is taking it to another level. How could we, kao grešni ljudi, imaju smjelosti, ne samo da smo dostojni Božje slave, ali da zapravo predstaviti na taj način drugima? To try to convince others to give us the glory that belongs to God alone. Talking proudly is like not only robbing someone, ali govori sve o tome i potičući ih da učine isto.
Jedino što je, 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. Što je razlog zašto je Hannah kaže da ne bi trebalo biti to.
Prideful govor je branje borbu s Bogom, which is why it’s inconsistent with the life of a believer. Kao što smo čuli jutros, "Bog se oholima protivi, ali daje milost poniznima. "
Ako nismo u Kristu, ponosom riječi, 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, molim te upoznati ga. Obratite se od grijeha, and throw yourself on His mercy. He was incredibly humble—humble enough to die so that sinners like you and me can live. On je ustao iz groba sa svom silom,, i poziva ljude da ga slijede. Voljeli bismo razgovarati s vama više o tome kasnije.
No, kao kršćani, Što to znači za svoja djela da se prosuđuje? 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. Kad stojimo pred Bogom, 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.
Također, we want to please the Father. Of course He’s pleased with us in Christ, ali želimo da on bude zadovoljan s našim dobrim djelima koje dolaze iz vjere u Krista. Želimo zadovoljiti naše ljubavi prema Bogu.
Ne smijemo dopustiti da arogantni riječi koje dolaze iz naših usta. I iako ćemo morati odgovarati Bogu za naše ponosne govora, trebamo slaviti Boga da su naši grijesi pokriveni u Kristu.
Dakle, ako želimo da Bog proslavio naš govor, Kako ćemo se boriti ovu arogantnu razgovor?
Pitanje 3: Kako se borimo Ponosni govor?
Mi to učiniti radovati se u Bogu.
Trebamo gledati naš govor, but that’s not enough. It’s like telling someone with a cold the solution is just to hold their sneeze in. Ne, bolest je ono što treba biti napadnuti.
The proud heart rejoices in itself. But the humble heart rejoices in God. Pogledajte prvim riječima Hannah molitve u stihu 1: “My heart rejoices in the Lord.” Hannah shows us the proper response to the Lord’s blessing. Ne samo uživajući u tome što je dao Gospodin, nego u samome Darovatelja. Naš odgovor može biti ponosna, ali umjesto toga treba proizvesti poniznost u nama, jer primamo dar od Boga
God gives and takes away. God distributes and withholds. No, on to sve za naše dobro i Njegovom slavom. We falter when we begin to depend on those things too much. Rejoicing in God kills both pride and hopelessness.
Kako se radovati u Bogu? Do what it takes to remind yourself who’s behind everything. Praise God when you receive that check. To je razlog zašto Bogu zahvaljujemo prije naše hrane. Remembering that it’s arrogant to assume our plans will always go forth. Recimo Gospodin želi. Give glory to God when others congratulate you on your accomplishments. Ne za minutu dopustiti srce uzeti kredit. Gledajte svoje prideful govor. Nađi korijene ponosa u srcu.
Svaki od nas je dao nevjerojatnu priliku s svake riječi govorimo. Mi smo dobili za korištenje naše riječi da slavite Boga koji nas je napravio. Mi smo dobili za korištenje naše riječi pomoći drugima vidjeti Boga za slavnog Gospodina da je On.
So my encouragement is not to use your words to exalt yourself. umjesto, koristiti ih da učine ono što su stvoreni da se uradi dati slavu Bogu. To sve pripada Njemu svejedno.
This was so refreshing and convicting. Puno ti hvala! 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…Amen
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! Milost i mir!
So nourishing! Hvala ti! volim ovo: “Talking proudly is when you don’t acknowledge God as the One who’s sovereign and deserving of glory, u svom srcu ili samih riječi. A kada to radimo, uzmemo slavu koja pripada Bogu” and this:”Kad stojimo pred Bogom, 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.
Hvala na dijeljenju.
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: “Kada mislite da u svom srcu da zaslužujete slavu, 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, pošteno, 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 (la Lee) for letting God use you to glorify him. Me and my wife really enjoy your music. Our favorite song of course is “Dobra stvar”. 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% dobro! 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% dobro. 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. Rimljani 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, misli, and prayers. Your words are just that, riječi. 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
