Battling Ego

July 5, 2013

When a general returned from a victorious battle, ancient Rome would stage a parade to welcome the conqueror home. The parade would include the general’s troops, as well as trophy captives who had been brought along as evidence of the victory. As the parade made its way through the city, the crowds would cheer their hero’s success.

To prevent the general’s ego from becoming unduly swollen, a slave rode along with him in his chariot. Why? So that as the Roman throngs heaped praise on the general, the slave could continually whisper in his ear, “You too are mortal.”

When successful, we too may lose sight of our own frailty and allow our hearts to fill with destructive pride. James pointed us away from the danger of pride by pointing us to humility and to God. He wrote, “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble” (James 4:6). The key to that statement is grace. Nothing is more wonderful! The Lord alone deserves thanks and praise—especially for the grace He has lavished on us.

Our achievements, success, or greatness are not rooted in ourselves. They are the product of God’s matchless grace, upon which we are eternally dependent.

New mercies every morning,
Grace for every day,
New hope for every trial,
And courage all the way. —Mc Veigh
God’s grace is infinite love expressing itself through infinite goodness.

Read: James 4:6-17

God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. —James 4:6
Bible in a Year:
Job 30-31; Acts 13:26-52

Not to worry! Hope you and yours had a GREAT holiday!

We don’t really have any special 4th traditions. Just being
home from work was a treat! :)

Fireworks will be heard in a couple hours if the city is having them this year. There has been a complete burn ban for a couple weeks....BBQs only. There was a partial lifting of the ban Tuesday and I’m betting the closed fireworks stands, none in the city (illegal), opened to a rush. I’m already hearing scattered pops and booms.

It rained over night, not a lot, but maybe enough to allow the city display. Tradition is a baseball double header and fireworks after, close to midnight. No sun all day, so the usual second game could be kinda dark.
