Crowning Himself

Words for the Week to ponder.

It is said Napoleon, after bringing much of Europe to his knees, proclaimed himself emperor. He ordered Pope Pius VII to be present to present the crown. However, his pride was so great he would not allow anyone to place the crown upon his head, so he placed it there himself.

How different men will see themselves when they stand before God. We will cast our crowns before His throne and confess that all glory, honor and power belong to Him. (see Revelation 4:10-11)

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: The single most significant decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my choice of attitude. — Charles Swindoll

  1. When I see God face-to-face
    I’ll probably get in trouble
    and then have to count on grace
    to keep intact my bubble.
    It’s a ballcap, not a crown I wear
    and I never take it off.
    Not down here, nor up there;
    my hat I shall not doff.
    I’m sure God will wonder
    how I made it there alive,
    and then I’ll complete my blunder:
    “Hey, God, high-five!”
    My eternity’s bet upon the rumour
    that the Almighty has a sense of humour.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this subject!
