God Will Cut You Down

May 14, 2011

I have been struck recently by the way that life drags the proud low. Those who are good looking and cool today will be old, saggy, wrinkled, and generally uncool tomorrow. Money fades away. Power is fleeting. Death is coming like a freight train. I used to get upset when I saw self-absorbed people acting badly without consequence. But I don’t anymore. Time and age make pride silly. The proud are simply short sighted. Time humbles. Sooner or later God cuts us all down.
