A Prideful Heart

What are your thoughts about being prideful after reading Daniel 4:1-37 regarding King Nebuchadnezzar? Let us not imitate the king who was driven away from people to be with wild animals and eat grass like the ox.

“Is this the great Babylon I have built as the royal residence, by my mighty power and for the glory of my majesty?” Even as the words were on his lips, a voice came from Heaven, “This is what is decreed for you, King Nebuchadnezzar, you will be driven away from people and will be with wild animals; you will eat grass like the ox.’

‘Seven times will pass by for you until you acknowledge that the Most High is sovereign over all kingdoms on earth and gives them to anyone He wishes.” In verse 37, King Nebuchadnezzar praised and exalted and glorified the King of Heaven because everything He does is right, and all His ways are just. God will humble those who is prideful.

Questions to Ponder

Instead of praising our powerless selves independent from God, we should reverence and praise Him for His grace and mercy for our achievements? We must each test and examine our own actions to ensure we are not prideful (Galatians 6:4-5).


God is Sovereign! God is Supreme! God hates a prideful heart. Sadly, among us are those who struggle with pride. Some do not realize the potential awaiting in the plan that God has for our lives without pride.

Thank you all far and near for the calls, texts and thoughtfulness of wanting to send restaurants gift cards and offers to prepare us meals.

The stitches were removed and there were a lot of scar tissue from my 2017 left-hand surgery. My incision was more into my hand than previous surgeries, and a wrap was placed around nerves.

My hand is still weak, but I was medically instructed to slowly start picking up very small and light items for strengthening until May 24th follow-up appointment and get my hand therapy schedule. Again, thank you for your thoughts, prayers, well wishes, calls and other gestures of kindness including continued support for MRS. T’S CORNER.

    1. Hello Karla, thank you for you reading and commenting. My hand is sore, but my excruciating back pain, all day, overshadowed the hand. It has been a while since I had severe muscle spasm. I believe you would offer me prayers, encouragement and support. I appreciate your virtual kindness and friendship. My right shoulder is hurting and bearing the burden of the left hand/shoulder. I responded to your e-mail today. I too, get behind when it comes to reading emails. Please take care and know you are in my prayers and thoughts.
