The vain will-of-the-wisps

Seldom does the fear of the Lord enter the heart of the proud and self centered man, but instead the fear of not being the center of attention or being number one is the driving force of his life.
The proud man spends his whole life seeking to gain recognition from others by trying to attain some lofty office or goal.
Such a man will seek to destroy his competitors with lies and slander, while making high minded claims about his own abilities and prospects.
Brethren, what is amazing is how many gullible people will follow after and put their whole trust in these proud and vain will-of-the-wisps.
Instead, Brethren, put your whole trust in the Lord our God for in Him alone can you safely trust.
