How to Live a Happier Life

[The Lord] mocks proud mockers but shows favor to the humble and oppressed.
Proverbs 3:34

The proud say lord don/t let me be like--------- (fill in the blank). Thank God I am better than --------- (fill in the blank).

Humble say: “Lord I am so ashamed of my weaknesses. Thank You that Jesus washes them clean. Please oh loving wise Guidance Councilor; guide me in how to improve my life.

Which are you?

You know arrogant people also tend to be bitter and lonely people. They are as phony and shallow as a three dollar bill. They always think of themselves as better than anyone else. They are also trouble makers who enjoy stirring up the pot, then sitting back and laughing when the fireworks explode. Stay away from these people. They will give you nothing but grief, sorrow and anger.

Humble people tend to be happy people who are surrounded by others that love them. They live a contented life, no matter how much or how little they have. They are usually very quiet people that love to help others. I love to be around them.

Prayer: Oh Jehovah Rohi, please do not let me become an arrogant goof. Please always give me a heart of humbleness, like our savior Jesus. In His wonderful name we pray. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ love bless you today and every day.

      Thank you

      The part about the arrogant goof is because I see so many that that is the only description of them.

      Joe - I like all of it, but especially the prayer about not being an arrogant goof. :)
