1 Samuel 15.23
Getting self-important around God is far worse than making deals with your dead ancestors.
thank you lord that we do not have to put ourselves down just for us to lift others up. thank you for teaching us this attitude of real humility, of serving others and your purpose in them, of wanting to see your plan unfold and happen in their lives, of taking joy at seeing your word flourish, grow, bear fruit and reproduce in other people's lives. thank you that in world where we are born, raised and taught to fend for ourselves and ensure our survival in whatever way possible, your way that counters all these other thinking is the one and only true way that brings about everything everyone is truly looking for - life. thank you for making it all plain to us in your word because of your love. praise you, jesus!
