Pride vs. Humility–Round 1

Hey 👋🏾 there BCU Family!

Typically, you have the option of listening to our podcast, reading the notes or both. For this post, because of the conversational story, please tune into the podcast recording and refer to the written post for the corresponding Scriptures. We pray the post blesses and encourages you.  If so, please thumbs up or leave a comment! Thank you and enjoy the post!

Click below to listen to my “incident” with a flight attendant this past weekend and what God taught me about my response.

Scriptures to mediate on:

Woe unto the world because of offences! For it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence comes! (Matthew 18:7).

For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body (James 3:2).

When pride comes then comes shame: but with the lowly is wisdom (Proverbs 11:2).

 Only by pride comes contention: but with the well advised is wisdom (Proverbs 13:10).

So, BCU Fam, that’s my story! What are your thoughts about the post? Please scroll on down to the comments section and let’s continue our conversation!

  1. Whew! What a convicting exert, it is always good when God reveals an area of work we can do in our hearts, with His help of course! This reminds me of my experiences on Spirit Airlines. I wasn’t as kind as you and I wasn’t obedient to the voice that shushed me either. A friend that I was flying with was experiencing sharp pains in her head. Neither of us were familiar with the symptoms so we panicked. We were met with a rude flight attendant in the most vulnerable magnitude. I. Went. Off. Although it felt good, I missed an opportunity to operate out of grace and love. Lesson learned!

  2. Hi Sadé!!!!

    You said a mouthful right here! “with His [God’s] help, of course! He wants to help us, we just have to let Him do it–hence the war between the flesh and the spirit.

    And the situation you encountered with your flying companion feeling unwell? I can totally understand why you’d feel panicked and helpless when the very people trained to assist give you rude responses! 😦

    My pastor had something similar happen when his wife took sick and a nurse or someone was giving them a hard time. In telling the congregation about it, he said something like, “you can get your point across and still be saved.” The way he said that/ his demeanor–you could tell he meant business, but not a word was spoken that he needed to repent for. That’s allowing The Spirit to TOTALLY take over the conversation.

    With God’s grace, we’ll both get there, Sis! 🙂

    Thanks so much for stopping by! Please come back again!

    Love,

    BCU
