Humility brings Exaltation

April 13

Daily Bible Reading: Luke 14:1 – 24

Verse of the Day: Luke 14:11 – “For everyone that exalteth himself shall be humbled; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.”

Stay real. It doesn’t matter how many honors, how many degrees, what position you hold, just be real. Get rid of any ideas of the special privileges, the rewards you should have, or the accolades and pats on the back you should have. We should serve out of love for God and only for His approval.

He has so many unseen ways of rewarding us for our service to Him. If we do our service to impress others, we will always hunger for glory and approval. All glory belongs to God and Him alone.

If we are trying to impress others, the approval we receive from them will probably be the only reward we will receive. God never shares His glory with others (Isa. 42:8).

Prayer: Father, all Glory and Honor belongs to You and You alone. I will not seek to take any credit that belongs to You today. May others see only You through me. Amen.
