Romans 11:18 – Spiritual Arrogance

Today’s Reading: 2 Chronicles 21:1‐23:21, Romans 11:13‐36, Psalm 22:1‐18, Proverbs 20:7

Romans 11:18  (D)o not be arrogant toward the branches. If you are, remember it is not you who support the root, but the root that supports you.

Observations:

  • Context: This is in the explanation of Gentile believers being grafted into the promises of God.
  • Do not be arrogant toward the branches (broken off – see previous verse)
  • If you are (arrogant), Remember:
    • It is not you who support the root
    • The root supports you

I am in a season in my life were I am being complimented for my faith.  I must remember that it is only because I have been grafted into the true life source.

Application:  Today I want to consciously spend time remembering where all good things in my life come from.

Have you known someone who is spiritually arrogant?  How do you know you do not come across that way?
