Swimming with Sharks

I’m Dr. Bob and for just a mentoring minute, I’d like to ask if you would enjoy swimming with sharks? Sounds like a ridiculous question, doesn’t it? Personally, I don’t want anything to do with sharks. I know that when a shark strikes, it is quick, violent and deadly. I cannot imagine anyone wanting to put themselves in the sights of a hungry shark. So, why do we so easily, and so often swim in an ocean of our own predatory pride? We know pride’s bite, just like a shark’s, is quick, violent and deadly to our friends, family and ultimately, to ourselves. Proverbs 16:18 says, “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.” I’m Dr. Bob. Don’t let your pride take a nasty bite out of you. The Bible tells us, “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.” (That’s found in James 4:6 and 1 Peter 5:5) Contact me at www.mentoringministry.com and let me know what you think.
