Let go of my eggo--pride cometh ahead of a fall! - holiness


Years ago a ad ran for eggo waffles. It showed two small offspring grabbing an eggo waffle popping out of the toaster, yelling, "Let go of my eggo!!" We didn't see what transpired among the two, yet I have to deem one of two things happened; one of the kids would have given in and let go or the waffle would have been torn in to small pieces.

If you are common with any type of racing there are two types of racing. The race that is run all out, hold nonentity back, full steam ahead to the finish line like the "Hare". Or one can is ran on tactics. Plan when to go fast and when to slow down, think ahead, look at the big picture, take mind off of self, also way conserving the energy to when needing it the most, such as the "Tortoise". Do you think the Hare had any pride in his decision on how to run his race? Do you think he thought at all about the leeway of the Tortoise beating him? What do you think the Tortoise was thinking at the beginning, the central and at the end of the race? You silly fool! Yeh, maybe so. And so does the devil.

Pride is a bend edged sword that can exceedingly cut if used in the wrong way. And the devil knows how to use it alongside us. Most of us fight with our flesh and run our lives such as the Hare did full steam to the finish. That is if the race does not kill us first ahead of we reach the end. Our flesh tells us we can be in charge of the pace when our lives are in chaos. It says, try harder, and go faster regain the lead by over powering others. And at the end what do we have? What have we done? And what have we to show? What do you think the Tortus was thinking?

Jesus says in Proverbs 16:18, "Pride goeth before a fall. " And he's right. If we think anything otherwise the fall will assuredly come, it will be hard and in the end it maybe the only thing that gets your attention. Having a bond with Christ is much more like in succession a race like the Tortus instead than of the Hare. Pacing, thinking, enjoying the journey all the while gaining strength along the way of the Tortus. Many think repenting, receiving dunked and to heaven I go is the way such as the Hare. Yet, is it so?

Knowing kids I don't think both let go of the eggo already it was too late. Will you do the same and allow your own life be torn apart because of Pride? Or will you let go of your EGO long enough for Jesus to put his arms about you and say trust me that's all. Since at the end of the day, what actually matters most is not who won the race or who had the most credible case or the most money or main job title, what matters most is your TRUST in Jesus. Any you trust in the effects of this world or you trust in him, it's just that simple! Who do you think the Hare trusted? And who do you think the Tortus trusted?

It may not be in our childhood that we need to hear these story's the most. We may have also long forgotten the clean commercials that once taught us about our lives to come, Yet, at the end of our race of life the difficulty will still remain, "In whom did you place your trust?
