The scientist cloned himself 11 times.
So there were 12 of him.
He was so proud of himself because of the work.
Then, the angel of death came.
All 12 said, "you will not find the real one!"
The angel of death said, "Oh, yes. There is a FLAW in one!"
Immediately the scientist jumped out and asked,
"Where?! Where is the flaw?"
The angel of death said, "Ah. YOU are the one! Because
the flaw is PRIDE!"
Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that
fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before
the sons of men!
LIGHT from the WORD.
Pride has workaholics thinking they can do it all if they keep working.
Pride has the control freak thinking they can control everything and everyone.
Pride goes against the Christian virtue of humility!
"The proud person always wants to do the right thing, the great thing.
But because he wants to do it in his own strength, he is fighting not
with man, but with God!" (Soren Kierkegaard)
(See Isaiah 41:12)
On the other hand, HUMILITY recognizes that everything is a gift from
God and that it is only by His grace and the power of the Holy Spirit,
that we are able to breathe, think, and act!
All those in the Bible who are called saints
first recognized they were sinners!
They became effective instruments of God because they were
humble enough to recognize they could do nothing of value
without Him working IN and THROUGH them!
Christians are called to be Christ-like!
5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant,
and was made in the likeness of men:
8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became
obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
