Humbly and Lovingly

You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.

-Galatians 5:13

As Christians, God calls us to serve one another. We need to use the freedom that Christ has given us to serve others humbly, not using that freedom for sinful purposes. We aren’t slaves to sin anymore; we’re free! We need to use the freedom that God has blessed us with to glorify Him, not glorify ourselves.

Challenge: Serve someone, humbly and in love.

Pride and Humility

“Pride leads to disgrace,

but with humility comes grace.”

-Proverbs 11:2

Pride. God’s word says it’s bad. I like this verse about pride, too.

“Pride goes before destruction,

and haughtiness before a fall.”

-Proverbs 16:18

Pride will destroy us. It will lead to disgrace. Haughtiness will make us fall. But, if we’re humble, we will have grace. God wants us to be humble. We’re nothing without him. So don’t have pride in what you do, but in the God who gives you everything.

Challenge: Be humble!
