Pride & Conceits (Ideas) vs Humility & Submission

Humility pushes prideful people away… It is what it is. As a humble servant, you’ve gotta be ok with that!

It should be a part of your vision and plan to be lowly and be humble with humble people.

As servants, we should get away from the competition of clever ideas, and be content with the simplicity of submission and obedience to God’s Commands and Ordinances. #submission #notmyideas #notmywill #notmyconceits #notmyfancies #notmycreativity

Romans 12:16 Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.
