It is Friday and a beautiful morning already! I've never been so happy to see hints of spring! I also have a spring in my step because Randy and I have the pleasure of seeing John Mayer tonight! I know some might snarl at any of his indiscretions, but the good that I have witnessed in his music writing, personality on stage and blues guitar skills has produced a genuine fan in Randy and I. Can. not. wait! If you're unfamiliar with him and at all curious, here are a couple of videos, though they alone don't do him justice.
This is one of my favorites.
This one highlights a little of his sweet guitar skills. :)
Anyway, as a ending to this week thinking heavily about my pride, I have a request. I understand that you may decline and that's fine, but if you ever feel inclined, please go right ahead. If you ever witness prideful words, attitudes, anything coming out of me, whether to you or to anyone else, would you bring it to my attention? Throughout this week I've experienced moments when I remained humble and silent and also moments when I vomited up prideful everything. I really like and feel blessed by the humble moments. I like how they impact my relationships with others and my attitude towards God. Therefore, #1 it is a worthy goal for me and #2 I suspect maintaining it will be much harder than I realize.
Proverbs 16:18 Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.
Any advice on maintaining humility and keeping pride out?
