DAY 59

Silver wispy clouds
High and lofty

Made me think of pride.
10Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

What a struggle. Humility is a virtue few walk in. To be humble is to not be proud. While the love of money may be the root of all evil, I think pride is behind all sin.

Pride says "I can do it myself. I am first."
Humility says "My God is all. HE is first."

What strong beacons of His light we are when we put aside our need for self-importance and glorify Him.

In this age of so-called self-esteem, we would be wise to remember that we are only because He is.

  1. I believe you are right. God has been showing me how much pride I have been walking in. It is not a pretty picture. Good word Patty. : )
