Scripture: Luke 14:11 For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
Observation: Most of my life I have dealt with pride. I feel I have abilities greater than most in some areas and exalt myself above others. It wasn’t until I was saved that I realize everything I have and am is a gift from God. I have no right to be proud in myself, only to be proud that my God loves me so much.
Application: My Lord tells me to be humble, to put others above myself and to serve him and others to glorify him. I need to see myself as a servant, a servant loved by his master and go out of my way to please him.
Prayer: Dear God, my Father and my master. Humble me before you and guide me through this life. Show me how to please you and be drawn closer to you.
