“For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted” (Luke 14:11).

Guard us Father, from the deadly perils of pride. We thank You for coming to live in flesh and blood and showing us the pathway to glory is through humility. “Though he was in the form of God, [He] did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, 10so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,” (Phil. 2: 6-10)

Help us, Father, to be like Christ. May we regard ourselves as least of all people, Lord, if only our lives might be used to point people away from us and to Your riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

Larry
