Humility

It takes humility to accept God cares for you.

What? Isn’t it when we feel the lowest about ourselves that we believe God has forgotten or given up on us because we are so unlovable?

It takes humility to accept God cares for you.

Isn’t it PRIDE that causes one to believe that God cares specifically for us when he has all of the other people in the world? Pride, not humility to believe He could care about whatever petty thing we care about?

It takes humility to accept God cares for you.

PRIDE is believing we are better than others, or somehow, for whatever reason, we are the exception. PRIDE is expecting different treatment than others.

God’s Word is full of promises centered around His steadfast love for his children… full of promises of redemption, comfort, compassion, and love.

Are YOU an exception to those promises? Are you so PRIDEFUL to believe you do not fit in with His creation?

It takes humility to accept God cares for you.
