You Are To Know Your Place

Solomon is one of the wisest man who has ever lived on earth. His call to embracing wisdom as well as trusting and honoring God, makes his proverbs’ writings both applicable to our daily lives and important to memorize and master them.

Solomon once said, “Do not exalt yourself in the king’s presence, and do not claim a place among great men; it is better for him to say to you, “Come up here,” than for him to humiliate you before a nobleman.” Proverbs 25:6-7.

There is little doubt that Solomon advices us all to be cautious about forcing favor without approval. Know your place and don’t seek the path of fools whom with much pride convince themselves of greatness without a test and temporarily place themselves among the select few.

Practice self-control too.

“Like a city whose walls are broken down is a man who lacks self-control.” Proverbs 25:28. Take ownership of your own decisions and avoid ostentation. The former will only take you to the path of foolishness and destruction.

Humble yourselves and let the Lord guide your ways. It’s the only logical path to take because ultimately, the Lord is in control of everything anyways. Let God work in your life, be accepting of His will and in much humility make your decisions.

“Shall the last be first and the first be last.” Matthew 20:16
