Customs and culture can gradually change our attitude and thoughts on vocabulary. What do people intend to communicate or what exactly is it they are feeling. As individuals we have achieved things in our lives for which we can be proud. Maybe it is a degree or a promotion at work. Possibly a sacrifice in our time or money that was a totally unselfish gift to the community. Whatever, each of us may have our own list of events or accomplishments for which we can be proud. Pride is a part of who we are or who we want to become. In today’s culture saying that you are proud of someone or taking pride in their accomplishments is given as the highest form of praise. You are honored to have the opportunity or occasion to pass along your very highest compliments.
The word originally meant a person was arrogant, haughty, capable of mocking God and creating a relationship with God that displeased him. So, which is it? Are we motivated to understand that the original definition has fallen into disuse and words and attitudes just presented more properly express what is really going on, how we really feel? Or is there something else at work here? Does it matter one way or the other? It all seems harmless. Is the bible only casually interested in pride and humility?
In the pages to come there will be stories to tell, observations to make and lessons available to apply to our own lives. Hopefully, the stories will be entertaining, the observations will be insightful and enlightening and the lessons challenging. But more than entertaining the stories need to be accurate and truthful, and more than insightful they need to give us understanding and discernment. Welcome to a guide to understanding Wrongful Assumption of Position.
