Straight to the Top

Proverbs 25:6-7

Do not claim honor in the presence of the king, and do not stand in the place of great men; for it is better that it be said to you, “ Come up here,” than for you to be placed lower in the presence of the prince, whom your eyes have seen.


All the Babel builders were humbled before the Lord

seeking His presence by what their strength could afford

thinking they could go straight to the top

but God had other plans so theirs were forced to stop


Men still rush to be in important places

they still attempt to seize ruler’s graces

they still seize power that is not their own

but they are still humbled by he who is on the throne


Instead of walking in like I own the place

I keep a humble heart which informs my face

If I rushed the top I would surely fall

so I take my place and wait for the King’s call


Even now that is what I do

for the top is so high it’s not even in view

I sit here content – this is not my final stop

for the King will call me and I’ll go straight to the top
