Pompous like a king

Pride rides,
Pompous like a king,
But it’s such an empty thing,
A meaningless fling.

The humble can honestly be who they really are. The haughty have to keep up their hype. Pompous people seldom laugh if they’re not either intoxicated or insulting someone.

Pomposity makes life a monstrosity. Humility makes room for God’s ability.

Haughtiness about our heritage can hinder our understanding of history by making it hard for us to face uncomfortable truths. History shows that color-pomposity leads to much atrocity. The attitude of superiority has caused humanity many problems. Color-pompousness, even if you think it’s well hidden in your heart, is a form of racism. Check out: Off the RACE Track book.

If you say you follow Jesus, but let yourself get pompous, you’ve gotten off track somewhere along the way. Humility is a great course corrector.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
