Preparing for His Coming – Luke 12:35 – 12:48

Pride Caused me not to Get to go to the Circus

One afternoon the school principal came to our class and asked us to raise our hand if our parents were going to take us to the circus. Not wanting to appear left out, I raised my hand. To my astonishment, the school principal then invited all the kids who did not raise their hand to go with her, she was taking all of them to the circus herself. How disappointed I felt when I realized that I had lost my only opportunity to go to the circus, simply because of my pride. It taught me a great lesson. Any of us can be left behind when Christ returns by failing to trust Christ as Saviour and for allowing pride or other sins to remain in our hearts. (Contributed by Simon Melendres in Sermon Central).
