    ACAD – Praise: Psalm 49

    Why Should I Fear in Times of Trouble? To the choirmaster. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah. Hear this, all peoples!     Give ear, all inhabitants of the world, both low and high,     rich and poor together! My mouth shall speak wisdom;     the meditation of my heart shall be understanding. I will incline my ear to a proverb;     I will…

    Pride is all about self

    There is nothing of God in your pride or self-professed righteousness. Pride is all about what you want for yourself, what you like for yourself, what you do for yourself and any other self-seeking pleasures you decide to pursue (for yourself).

    Pride Fail

    Remember the words I spoke to you: ‘No servant is greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also.  ~ John 15:20 I would like to humbly say that I am a humble person, but chances are that statement would have more of a prideful boast…

    Who Are You Building For?

    When you dedicate yourself – your life – to God, when you submit to the guidance of the Holy Spirit and lean on the teachings of Jesus Christ everything you do is imbued with His essence. Everything. You don’t have to draw attention to yourself, however people will be drawn to you – not because of who you are but…
