Daily Bible Reading: Luke 20:27 – 47
Verse of the Day: Luke 20:46 – 47 – “Beware of the scribes, who desire to walk in long robes, and love salutations in the marketplaces, and chief seats in the synagogues, and chief places at feasts; who devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayers: these shall receive greater condemnation.”
Jesus is speaking against those who are religious authorities that walk in unrestrained pride. As believers we should walk in humility.
Humble. Consider these four points about being humble. First, when we are humble we are meek, not weak. Second, being humble is active, not passive. Third, when we are humble we see others, not ourselves. And finally, it comes from a good self-image not a poor one.
Today, seek to walk humbly before God and man. Receive His praise and not His condemnation.
Prayer: Jesus, give me the power to walk humbly. To be meek, active in Your service, seeing others in their needs. Give me a heart to walk in Your footsteps today. Amen.
