Scripture for the day is Proverbs 25:6-7
Do not exalt yourself in the king’s presence,
and do not claim a place among his great men;
7 it is better for him to say to you, “Come up here,”
than for him to humiliate you before his nobles.
What you have seen with your eyes
After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, the whole subject of humility is difficult to even approach. Even when I pray for it, I sense a secret self-satisfaction growing over my modest demeanor. All I can say is that, Lord God, be merciful to me a sinner, and never let me forget I am only that – a loved sinner. Amen.
