Daily word for 7 May 2017 – Luke 18:14
Dear brothers and sisters,
Today I want to encourage you with the words from Luke 18:14 (NIV):
14 “I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”
Although it is very common to make yourself look big before the eyes of the world, God wants us to the opposite. All we have reached in our lives is due to the mercy of God and not in anyway by our own works! See how Jesus was so humble, while as the Son of God he had every right to exalt Himself, but He never did!
