A young man told me this funny story:
John was visiting a friend in a psychiatric hospital. On his way to his friend, one of the patients ran to him and proudly asked him, “Do you know who I am?”
“I’m Napoleon Bonaparte.”
“Who told you that?”
“God, of course.”
Before John could respond, another patient said, “Why are you surprised? He says the truth. I’m the one who called him Napoleon Bonaparte.”
This story is told of patients in a psychiatric hospital but its events occur everyday in our lives. Many think that they are God. When they say a word, they consider it faultless. They do not accept discussion or another opinion in their lives.
Lord, destroy all pride inside me,
So that I would not be the one to order and prohibit.
Help me not to hold to my opinion in pride and haughtiness.
Let me not live, but You live in me,
So that I desire to be crucified with You,
And May I find a place for every person in my heart.
Let him Hit me
