“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

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 convinced that we are good and holy…

and that so many others aren’t.

.

But we had better think again,

because if that is the impression we have 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, causes self-awareness.

Deep humility brings about acknowledgment of our weaknesses and of our volatile nature

…and of our great and constant need for God’s counsel.

.

If we focus on God, we will get to where He has prepared a place for us.

If we focus on ourselves, we will get lost and lose the ultimate prize.

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Lord, remove my pride and self-centeredness,

so that when my race is run, I will come to stay in Your glorious presence forever.
