I felt such emptiness within me today. It started out of nowhere this morning. Almost tangible. I got so caught up in myself and I realized how the vain glory of the flesh leaves one vacant. Feeble and frail, i still am so many times. He is the only one in me worthy of praise; i am only a little vessel wrecked and flimsy, Christ in me, is what He is looking for... The line is so thin when you receive honour, it should always reflect back to God. Getting puffed up is so dangerous. I was so humbled just now when i listened to an awesome teaching, how the glory always needs to go back to God. It reminds me of a song from Keith Green where he says:
And when I'm doing well, help me to never seek the crown for my reward is giving glory to You.
