Go For It!

Philippians 3:8  “I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things.”

 

A number of years ago I went cliff jumping with a couple of friends.  To be clear they had done this before and it was my first time!  I remember walking up to edge of the cliff, looking over, and stepping back.  I did this a number of times until eventually I decided to “go for it!”  What a rush.

Humbling

Matthew 18:3 “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

 

Pride makes us do silly things. I was consulting with a company a number of years ago when one employee discovered that another employee was making a little more than him. He requested that his salary be raised to one dollar higher than his co-worker. The marginal increase made virtually no impact on his standard of living so I asked him why he made this request. He said that it was a matter of pride.
