Humility

The Lord says:
Don’t brag about your wisdom or strength or wealth. If you feel you must brag, then have enough sense to brag about worshiping me, the Lord. What I like best is showing kindness, justice, and mercy to everyone on earth. ~ Jeremiah 9:23-24 (CEV)
If you think you are too important to help someone, you are only fooling yourself. You are not that important. Pay careful attention to your own work... ~ Galatians 6:3-4 (NLT)

KEY IDEA:
Humility goes a long way in advancing God's agenda.
PRAYER:
Mighty God, I am grateful that you cherish humility and an honest desire to know you fully. Forgive my selfishness and pride. Teach me how to yield and surrender my will daily. Today, I choose to sit at your feet. Open my heart, teach me more of your ways, and help me to grow in honesty before you and others. Amen. (Daily Texts, Mount Carmel Ministries edition)
