God and the Widow 
by Berni Dymet  

Prov. 15:25 The LORD tears down the house of the proud, but maintains the widow's boundaries.

Isn't it easy in this world to be full of ourselves - to expect the world to revolve around us? I've been there; you've been there. And when we're full of pride - we look down our noses at those who, in our eyes, are less than us.

Let me ask you though - what's God's reaction to that sort of pride? Have a listen with me:

Prov. 15:25 The LORD tears down the house of the proud, but maintains the widow's boundaries.

That blows me away - so short, so powerful. Back when that was written - widows had no future. They were alone, they had no rights and they couldn't own property. They were nothing.

Yet God stands up for them - God protects them, He maintains their boundaries. But the proud, the haughty, the ones with the power and the money and the pride … God will tear their house down.

That's who God is. That's what He's like. Back then. Today. Forever.
