8/11/14 Daily Devotion

James 1:9 The brother in humble circumstances ought to take pride in his high position.

The expression of humility is one that is lacking more and more in our society. Humility, at one point, was a common trait. People opened doors for strangers. They allowed others to enter into traffic without rude hand gestures. Society has become self-focused, rude, and conceited. People place themselves above others on a consistent basis, especially if they are not family. But this is not the proper way of a Christian. Christians should be proud to present themselves with humility. They should be proud to put others before themselves. They should be willing to be courteous, generous, and compassionate. If Christians are not living in a manner that reflects the presence of Christ, they are then projecting an improper image into this world.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me demonstrate with pride and humility Your presence within my life.
