The experience we gain over time in our lives is a double-edged knife.
On the one hand, it helps in the efficiency of our actions, but on the other hand it can become a habit and the cause of superficiality and carelessness, often, with sad consequences. Particularly the proactive and powerful people are at the center of risk, and self-testing is therefore an indispensable tool on a daily basis. Christ Himself, knowing this great danger of pride created by our successes, recommends self-control and determines the criterion by which we will measure our successes.
As the slave at that time did not acquire rights because he had executed his master’s commands, so the people of faith do not acquire rights of faith because we did what Christ has told us to do for our own sake.
Failure to perform involves laziness and inertia. Execution to gain rights over others, brings pride, increases selfishness, and the spirit of God does not follow.
