Equipping Kingdom Women to Occupy

When you find yourself at the height of your career, or the best moment you’ve had in a long time, be careful how you treat others. I’m not just talking about actions but also what you say and think of people even if it’s to yourself. Especially of those who may seem to be doing “worst than you”.

Looking down at other is judgement or comparing ourselves to others is indeed sin. It is judgement. We’re exalting ourselves at the expense of another person. The apostle Paul knew this and repeatedly expected us to compare ourselves only to Christ author and finisher of our faith.

What the world call Karma the bible calls sowing and reaping. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen believers look down at others when at their height and then see them fall and have to eat a does of their own humble pie. In business you see this a lot. When they’re doing well all kinds of ego. Making exceptions of person, ignoring people and even making snide remarks. Then when things go south not a word. Most hide, don’t answer their phones, just straight up isolate. Humble pie hurts. This is why we should have grace and compassion towards everyone. We never know when we may end up on the receiving end. 


Galatians 6 is so so clear on this


“BRETHREN, If any person is overtaken in misconduct or sin of any sort, you who are spiritual [who are responsive to and controlled by the Spirit] should set him right and restore and reinstate him, without any sense of superiority and with all gentleness, keeping an attentive eye on yourself, lest you should be tempted also. Bear (endure, carry) one another’s burdens and troublesome moral faults, and in this way fulfill and observe perfectly the law of Christ (the Messiah) and complete what is lacking [in your obedience to it]. For if any person thinks himself to be somebody [too important to condescend to shoulder another’s load] when he is nobody [of superiority except in his own estimation], he deceives and deludes and cheats himself. But let every person carefully scrutinize and examine and test his own conduct and his own work. He can then have the personal satisfaction and joy of doing something commendable [in itself alone] without [resorting to] boastful comparison with his neighbor. For every person will have to bear (be equal to understanding and calmly receive) his own [little] load [of oppressive faults]. Let him who receives instruction in the Word [of God] share all good things with his teacher [contributing to his support]. Do not be deceived and deluded and misled; God will not allow Himself to be sneered at (scorned, disdained, or mocked by mere pretensions or professions, or by His precepts being set aside.) [He inevitably deludes himself who attempts to delude God.] For whatever a man sows, that and that only is what he will reap.”

Galatians 6:1-7 AMP


There’s so many scriptures that talk about this. Mathews 18 talks about this extensively. It even tells us that those “little ones” we look down at and often Scoff have angels in heaven watching their backs. 

“Beware that you do not despise or feel scornful toward or think little of one of these little ones, for I tell you that in heaven their angels always are in the presence of and look upon the face of My Father Who is in heaven.”

Matthew 18:10 AMP


I don’t know about you, but after reading the countless accounts in the bible about what angels do to intercede for those they’re assigned to, I don’t want to be on the wrong side. 

We have to do our daily Heart Check Time. That’s our number 1 priority. To humble ourselves before God and let him examine our hearts. We truly don’t know our own heart, only God does.
