Seeking Him Podcast

Brokenness and Rights

Leslie: This is Seeking Him with Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: Several years ago I began to compile a list contrasting the characteristics of proud people . . .

Man 1: Proud people have to prove they’re right.

Woman 1: I always get the last word.

Nancy: . . . with the characteristics of broken people:

Woman 2: Broken people give up their rights.”

Man 2: They even give up the right to be right.”

Nancy: Here are some differences I found out about the way we view our rights:

Man 3: Proud people claim their rights.

Woman 3: They have a demanding spirit.

Woman 4: Broken people have a meek spirit.

Man 4: Proud people are self-protective . . .

Woman 5: . . . of their time, their rights, and their reputation.

Man 5: Broken people are self-sacrificing.

Woman 6: Broken people are self-denying.

Nancy: James 4:6 says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” Would you surrender your rights to His will? Ask Him to develop a broken, humble heart in you.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
