You say: "I think I saved a guys job today"
That is wonderful news as well as the fact that no one's Grandparents will sufffer thru 100 degree weather without AC in a high rise.
In your words, I read that you care about people. That is a nice quality to have, IMO. It also though, can in my experience, make me more sensitive to what people think, because I care or allow myself to feel.
I am fortunate to Amish close by and I drive them now and then. I take joy in doing it. I enjoy their company.
You ask me this: "does the term "vain glory" mean anything to you?"
Well, I immediately think of 2 verses which I could only partially quote so I looked them up:
Galatians 5:26 KJV
Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
Philippians 2:3 KJV
Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
One verse has 2 separate words and the other verse pushes the 2 words together.
After looking at the verses, I read vain glory to mean not to boast or elevate one's self. If I had not looked up the verses and you just asked me what I thought about the words "vain glory," I would have replied something to the affect that any glory that is not God's glory or for God's glory is vain glory, or glory without purpose or reason, thus being empty.
What do those words mean to you?
