27 For you save a humble people,
but the haughty eyes you bring down. (Psalm 18:27)

Blessed are the poor in spirit, Jesus said, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven. You despise the proud, but You take delight in rescuing the humble.  Deliver us, O God, from our selfish pride.  Remind us today that we are but dust, and that all of our righteousness are as filthy rags before You.  We cannot merit Your favor, unless we are clothed in the righteousness of another.  And to the praise of Your glory, You have provided such a substitute.  Help us to be able to say with Paul, ‘Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost.’  Slay all pride and arrogance that remains within us, and help us to cling to You for life and breath and everything.
