We begin the Christian life with the best intentions. Go to church on Sunday, tithe ten percent . . . but in the midst of learning to look like a Christian, sometimes we forget the grace we found at the foot of the cross.
There’s a subtle temptation to live our spiritual lives for an audience of onlookers . . . rather than the “audience of One” . . . our heavenly Father. Saying the right thing at Bible study, having a prominent part in the Sunday service . . . it’s all good, but not the right focus.
Have you ever met someone so wrapped up in how great they are that you felt . . . well, a little less significant?
Ever receive a substantial gift from a friend that was entirely unexpected? It’s easy to think we somehow deserve them and forget that they’re an unearned expression of someone’s love.
No matter how much we put in the offering plate on Sunday, or how engaged we are in church activities, we still fall short of God’s perfect standard.
Whether you’re in the workplace or managing a family at home, it’s hard to carve out a few quiet moments with God. Let's join an insightful discussion on the Scriptures.
There’s a fine line between humility and pride. Pride tries to draw attention . . . and humility attempts to deflect it. And yet, sometimes in our best moments . . . we still find ourselves slipping into a proud position.
Humility, according to the “Discover the Word” team, is seeing who we are before God. Developing a correct assessment of ourselves can take some work.
We’re given many opportunities to follow God . . . and yet . . . our pride works against us. We tend to carve out our own path without regard to God’s direction.
