A man’s gift maketh room for him and bringeth him before great men. The significance of this verse confirms that God never tells us to use gifts, assignments, and responsibilities as titles to try to obtain clout.
I encourage people to stop focusing on titles; they can come and go; when you know who you are, the goal is to accomplish the mission effectively. No need for outside stimulation that can cause people to live with pride, speak with arrogance and partake in sin, and especially in God’s church body.
God will not be mocked, and those who try to become someone by using titles for attention only steal from themselves. It’s never wise to attempt to play the system when the structure belongs to God.
Those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.
It is preferable to be humble and prepared, rather than prideful and unprepared. While some may get away with it, more people suffer due to those who pretend to be light.
2 Corinthians 11:14-15
And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. 15 It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.
