You may be thinking this doesn’t apply to you since you don’t have a high position. But in reality, you do.

Do you sometimes think your way is better than God’s? Independence flows from pride, but a humble heart lives in complete reliance upon God.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Judges 13-15

THOUGHT FOR TODAY: There is no excuse for pride since any authority we have is from God—and His ways are always better than ours.
