Yes Bob, I have shared with you about how I was full of pride until I started to really work on it and continue to this day. Our Lord Blessed me all of my life in so many ways and I took the credit for it until the day He changed my life. I am still weaning myself from the pride I built up in my life because of His many Blessings. I am a daily work in progress.
I do have a comment about meeting and greeting people. A number of years ago, when people, Christian or not, old friends or new people, would ask "how are you today" I now always say, "I am totally Blessed". A number of times, it has given me an opportunity to share a little about who He is and how He Blesses me every day and probably Blesses them and they just do not realize it as a Blessing. I get to help them understand how to look to Him and see the Blessings he gives us and gives them. My one of five children that does not believe in Jesus had 11 Blessings in a period of several months by getting a new set of lungs just in time and all that went with that. He tells me yet today that it was because he was so strong and/or a coincidence. That was 23 years ago and he is so healthy yet that he rides his Harley all over the country. But he just will not see the truth and how truly Blessed he is yet today.
Thank you Bob for all the work you are doing in this and sharing with so many people. Without a doubt, He is Blessing you every day as well.
Reply from Watchman Bob: Good comment and suggestion, Don. I have a son who is pretty much in the same pride boat as yours. He knows the truth, but will not submit his pride to Yahuah ("God") and continues to do as he pleases. One more comment, please. Pride is subtle. For example, don't thank me. Nothing good comes from me. When people thank me, I just say, "Thank the Lord!"
