“Adoniyah the son of Haggit was beginning to claim that he would be king; to this end he organized chariots and horsemen, with fifty men to run ahead of him.”
1 Kings 1:5 CJB
Adoniyah here is exalting himself to be king over the people even though God never anointed him! Pride and arrogance will always get us into trouble.
“Because everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but everyone who humbles himself will be exalted.”
Luke 14:11 CJB
We all need to be careful of exalting ourselves over others, thinking somehow we are better or more superior than others!
“Therefore, humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, so that at the right time He may lift you up.”
1 Peter 5:6 CJB
It’s always better for us to take the lowest seat and not try to exalt ourselves over others! It’s always better to be humble and allow the LORD to do the lifting up! Today, don’t look down at people, but instead look for the good!
Have a blessed day in Him!
