The Lesson Is: Giving Up Self

Arrogance is a strange fruit. Once eaten it destroys a persons ability to think about anything but themselves. God wants the total opposite. We are to put others before us. We are to be humble and accept the essentials that are given us. God promised that we would want for nothing. If you have a roof over your head, why do you want another? If you have clothes to wear, why do you want more, more, and more? If you have sustainability(a job, a car) why do you want more? God wants us to be able to live humbly and give unconditionally with out complaining. And then he sees to your hearts desire. He wants to be assured that he comes first in our lives always. Remember Job. Remember David. Remember Saul who later became Paul. Each one humbled to the bottom of humbleness. 



Proverbs 24:14

So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off.
