The bible says, Fools are destroyed by their own complacency.This struck me when I read it in Proverbs. The book of Proverbs contains a lot of wisdom essential to moving forward in Christ.
Complacency means you are content or in the Latin, “very pleased” with where you are. A lot of times a complacent person neglects duties and is pleased with being stagnant with where he/she is. When you are complacent you reject wisdom and submit to a life of being a fool.Complacency can be the death of a powerful christian, and this is what the devil wants. Sometimes the devil makes us feel comfortable because he does not want us to move forward and not only stop us from growing in Christ, but stop us from fulfilling our purpose as well.
Proverbs3: 19 By wisdom the lord founded the earth; by understanding he created the heavens.
This is why we need to remain in the word, and learn as much as we can. The devil knows how dangerous a wise christian can be, and wants you to remain complacent.
Rubies are compared to women in the bible, but it is also compared to wisdom. So as women and men of God,we need to be wise and discerning. Proverbs 3:5 Wisdom is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her.
You cannot be complacent with where you stand in your walk with Christ, grow so that you can feed on the meat of the word , not just the milk.
