"As preparations were being made for a battle in the Revolutionary War, a corporal arrogantly ordered his men to lift a heavy beam. A man in civilian clothes was walking by said, "Why don’t you help them?" "Sir," he replied indignantly, "I am a corporal!" The man in civilian clothes apologized for his misperception, stripped of his coat and helped the soldiers himself. When the job was finished, he said, "Corporal, the next time your men need help, call on your commander-in-chief. I’ll be glad to help." With that, George Washington put on his coat and left". If we are truly honest with ourselves, then we will have to admit that sometimes we are like that corporal. This corporal sought to exalt himself only to find that he was humbled (Matthew 23:12).
