In today's qt, Jesus teaches at the festival in public, despite Jewish leaders trying to kill him. When someone asked how he knows so much when he hasn't been trained, he glorifies God, giving him credit, and teaches that those who speak for themselves want glory only for themselves, while a person who seeks to honor God speaks the truth.
I pray that I live a life of someone who seeks to honor God who speaks the truth, and not someone who speak for themselves and want glory only for themselves. I'm learning a lot about pride, on the major 7 deadly sins, and one of the thing is that people so caught up in it, when talking with them, they will keep turning the conversation around to talk about themselves. Talking with these types of people feels like talking to a dead person who can't listen. They're moving and talking, but almost completely contained and caught within themselves. It's sad to see, and it's alarming when I find myself catching myself from doing the same thing now and then.
Application: pray from noon to noon thirty
