"Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord and he will lift you up." 1 peter 5:6

We often worry about status and receiving recognition for the things we have done. Peter reminds us that Gods recognition is far more important than human praise. Humbly obey God regardless of your circumstances and in time he will lift you up. *

I feel like printing this and posting it on the side of my house. It seems like everyone is so caught up these days.

Amen, sista! This is something I have really struggled with over the years, and now I see it coming out in my 5 year old. I hope I can be a good example to her.
I've missed you!

I really needed this today. Thank you. Sometimes when hard work starts paying off I get tempted to take the credit. Not today. Today I will stay humble and remember it's all God working in and through me.

last year, some friends & I worked through a bible study together, and one of the chapters was on pride...it made me realize how truly prideful I can be! thank you for the reminder of humility. :)
