Daily Encouragement: Day 172

From Handbook to Wisdom, Day 172


I will not trust in myself or in my own righteousness,
nor will I view others with contempt.
(Luke 18:9)

I will be of the same mind with others;
I will not be haughty in mind or wise in my own
estimation, but I will associate with the humble.
(Romans 12:16) 

Dear Lord, as I look into the moral mirror of Your word, may I realize that all that I am and have comes from Your hand. I wish to trust in You and not in myself. As I grow in awareness of Your grace, may this become evident in the way I relate to people—not with arrogance and contempt, but with humility and loving service. Amen.
