• “If our children were to grow up truthful they much be taught by those who had a regard for truth; and not just a casual regard, a delicate regard. On this point we were adamant.” – Amy Carmichael (Gold Cord)

Proud vs. Humble – Themselves by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 01/27/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Proud people feel confident in how much they know.

“Your doctor doesn’t know what he’s talking about. I’ve seen this before. The pressure will last a couple days and then . . .”

Nancy: But humble people realize how much they have to learn.

“I know he’s a little hard to understand, but he may have something good to say.”

Nancy: Proud people worry what others think of them.

”It seems like everyone has a brand-new SUV, and I’m still in this clunky car!”

Nancy: Humble people aren’t preoccupied with themselves at all.

“Lord, you’re watching. All that matters is pleasing you.”

Nancy: When it comes to our attitudes about ourselves, we’re all tempted by pride. But the Spirit of God helps us choose the pathway of true humility. So we don’t need to be driven to extremes . . .

“Yeah, you could call me a workaholic. But I’m going to lighten up once I get the promotion. “

Nancy: . . . because humble people recognize God-given limitations.

“Lord, I didn’t finish my to-do list for today, but thank you so much for letting me talk with my neighbor.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

Verse of the Day

For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not bear false witness,” “You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. — Romans 13:9-10 (NKJV)
