5/11/13 Daily Devotion

Ephesians 4:2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.

How we are called to present ourselves within this world usually gets lost within our translation of life. We have heard the sermons, received the messages, read the scriptures, and heard the lessons, and they all make perfect Biblical sense. But then we enter into the picture. Even though we agree with the mandates of the Bible, we hold them accountable to our translation of life. We hold them captive to our ideas and desires, and, if needed, we change them to fit into our translation of life. This action makes us prideful, and yet we do it anyway. Humility is a trait that has become rare within today’s society, but it is a trait that all Christians should be expressing through their lives. To adjust the Word of God to suit our plans, to alter its meaning to fit into our little corner of life, is prideful. For as we do this, we are claiming to have greater understanding than God. Let us live not as a prideful people, but a people who are humbly seeking to please God.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me see where pride is prevalent within me, and show me how it can be removed.

  1. I love how you always narrow the root of most of our problems to pride. It really is our main culprit!
