“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Matthew 23:12

TODAY’S WORD…

Jesus warned, “All who exalt themselves will be humbled, and all who humble themselves will be exalted.”

– Matthew 23:12

 

REFLECTION…

A spirit of pride and ambition is incompatible with being a disciple of Christ.

Our Lord stresses the need for true humility, for anyone who is to follow Him. “All who exalt themselves will be humbled”…they are unacceptable in the sight of God. “All who humble themselves will be exalted”…not necessarily in this world, but certainly in the world to come.

 

QUOTES…

“God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble”    –  James 4:6

 

“Humility is the source and foundation of every kind of virtue; it is the door by which all God-given graces enter; it is what seasons all our actions, making them so valuable and so pleasing to God.  … for God has never been able to resist a humble heart”      The Curé of Ars

 

PRAYER…

Lord, from the desire of being esteemed, deliver me.
