In both these instances, the disciples appear to have taken undue pride and privilege in the special relationship they shared with Jesus. Yet how soon the mighty are fallen when Christ utters his rebukes! In view of this, we must be vigilant not to let our position in Christ make us prideful or hurtful toward others who do not agree with what we have to say.
The key is always humility. Not false humility that takes pride in itself, but a true humbleness of mind towards God and man, exhibited first and foremost, by a carefulness of tongue. King Solomon understood this principle when he wrote, "Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thy heart be hasty to utter anything before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few," (Ecclesiastes 5:2 KJV).
Lord Jesus, grant us the wisdom to discern your will in all we do; the power to control our tongues in all we say; and the liberty to be free from ourselves, so that you can be All in all in us.
