How great your mind…you didn’t make it.
How beautiful your face…you didn’t mold it.
What you’ve accomplished in the world…you don’t move it.
How dumb you think you are…God made it.
How ugly you feel you look…God molded you.
How much you’ve failed in the world…God keeps it moving to give you another chance.
Thinking too much of yourself will bring you down.
Not thinking enough of yourself will keep you down.
Notice the parable of Jesus mentioned in Luke 14…
Luke 14:7-11 (NKJV)
7 So He told a parable to those who were invited, when He noted how they chose the best places, saying to them: 8 “When you are invited by anyone to a wedding feast, do not sit down in the best place, lest one more honorable than you be invited by him; 9 and he who invited you and him come and say to you, ‘Give place to this man,’ and then you begin with shame to take the lowest place. 10 But when you are invited, go and sit down in the lowest place, so that when he who invited you comes he may say to you, ‘Friend, go up higher.’ Then you will have glory in the presence of those who sit at the table with you. 11 For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
In other words…Eventhough you shouldn’t think too much of yourself when you get there, you sill have to think enough of yourself to go.
