“His fame grew far, for he was marvelously helped, till he was strong. But when he was strong; he grew proud, to his destruction.”                  2 Chronicles 26:15-16

There was a king whose name meant “the Lord is my strength.” Uzziah sought the Lord, learned the fear of God from a prophet, and grew very strong in his long 52-year reign. Then in 52 minutes he destroyed it all, trading a legacy of fame for shame.

Whoever exalts him or herself will be humbled, but whoever humbles him or herself will be exalted. ~ Jesus
