Today’s Devotion | Golden Nuggets:
“Better” is only satisfied when best is achieved, and only God can claim to be the best at anything. Better is a carrot for which we should all strive. We always need to be better husbands, better wives, better neighbors, better students, better preachers, and better when it comes to reaching out to the lost.
The biggest better, however, is the better that says that we should be of a humble spirit with the lowly, because the door of eternal salvation has been set very low.
God resists the proud and gives grace to the humble, and grace is the door to heaven. Pride may promise pleasure, but it can’t deliver eternal life to dying and damned sinners. Better we humble our hearts and end up in heaven than keep our arrogance and pride and end up in hell.
Soul Search: Who would I rather be with, the proud or those who have a humble attitude?
Father, may I show grace to the humble. Amen.
