Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.
THOUGHTS ON TODAY'S VERSE...
Humble yourselves. That sounds obscene. At least to the "get ahead at all cost" and "don't look back the competition is gaining on you" culture of self-promotion it sounds obscene. Humility is a forgotten virtue. Often confused with weakness or timidity, humility is about knowing our proper place in the world without flaunting it. Only God can exalt in a permanent way, so the key is to know our place before him and let him put us in the place he chooses to honor him.
There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.
