Falling Down

Proverbs 16:18

18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall


My family lives in a house with stairs and for the three years we have live in that house I have taken in pride about not falling down those stairs. My wife has and always tells me to be careful and I have told her that I am not her, she has fallen on them, and I run up and down them. This morning I fail from the top and stopped at the bottom. I learned that even though I had gone three years without messing up, it can still happen. Christians are like that. The longer they go without making a mistake that they begin to think they are better than the ones struggling. They get so full of pride they never see the fall coming. Before they know it, they are knocked back down to their knees. Remember just because you don’t struggle and fall does not mean it can’t happen. Don’t get so full of pride that you miss a step and fall harder than anyone else.
