Today´s reading:
OT: Joshua 3-4
NT: Luke 14:7-35
Ps: Psalm 80
Pr: Proverbs 12:27-28

Today´s notable verse:

or everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.

Luke 14:11 (NIV)

The perspective of humility is that which enables the Christian to live a powerful, effective, and victorious life. When in humility I recognize my unworthiness of God's grace, then I place myself in position to be completely obedient and surrendered to God, to be used by Him, to allow His power to work through me, and for Him to glorify Himself in my life. When I in humility consider others better than and before myself, I subvert my self interest to the needs and interests of others.
