Are ya Snooty or Good Fruiti?

I’m a weirdo.

I think I am a nice weirdo, with many good attributes, by God’s grace, work and growth in me over many years.

I had a thought in the shower today:

Snooty usually falls in the mud and gets mud on her snout.

I don’t know why this came to me.

I think because I was considering my broad life experience. Seems like every-time I have seen a haughty, conceited, overly confident person circle through my life, (maybe a trouble causer on top of being haughty and prideful, thinking self is superior and others are less) I have most of the time lived to witness the fall that follows, where SNOOTY FALLS IN THE MUD.

In my mind, in the shower this morning, I could see a pig with mud on its face. (NO offense to pig lovers. I actually am fond of pigs- a country girl I am.)

Well of course snooty usually falls in the mud:

I don’t want to be snooty, I want to be good fruiti.

But beyond this silly saying, is it possible that we be snooty with out realizing it?

I believe definitely, “yes,” and if you want to read more about HOW we can be accidentally, unknowingly snooty, then follow to this post from Telling Hearts: Are You Promoting Misconception of Self Perception?

You know the saying, “Admitting that you have a problem is the first step to solving it.” Well I believe in an effort to shine for Christ, we need to work to avoid being SNOOTY, or being perceived as such.  It can take great effort, great work…
