What Goes Up....

The bigger and taller the object, the harder it falls. In life just as with gravity, the harder we work to build up relationships, businesses, ideals, our status, our careers, etc...the more there is at stake when we suddenly see them come toppling down. Sometimes before we act, before we speak, or before we respond, perhaps it would do us some good to search our hearts and ask whether the loss of our integrity and character is also worth losing all we have worked so very hard to create. Just a thought. This way when life brings that unexpected storm, and your walls come crashing in on you, you'll be able to smile and say, "I still have my honor. It is well with my soul."

Proverbs 18

12 Before his downfall a man's heart is proud, but humility comes before honor.

Proverbs 24

3 By wisdom a house is built,
and through understanding it is established;
4 through knowledge its rooms are filled
with rare and beautiful treasures.
