“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Matthew 19:30

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“Many who are first will be last,

and the last, first.”

.

– Matthew 19:30 (JB)

REFLECTION…

.

So we think that we’ve made it!

We believe that are on the right track

and moving in the right direction.

We are good and holy…

and so many others aren’t.

.

We had better think again,

because if that is what we think of ourselves,

and of others,

then we have certainly fallen into a trap

without even realising it.

.

Spiritual self-satisfaction and pride

is a self-destruct button.

.

Spiritual humility, on the other hand,

is a self-awareness

– an acknowledgment of our weaknesses

and of our volatile nature

…and of our great and constant need

for God’s counsel.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Lord, remove my pride and fill me with Your Spirit.
