Thought For Today


My devotional this morning explains pride much better then I could ever do, so I am sending their devotional to you today.

Beware Of Pride

18 Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a

Pride is deadly. But instead of warning us the world encourages
pride in every way.

What is pride?

Pride is faith in yourself, instead of faith in God.

The root of pride is selfishness: putting yourself first.
Thinking you are the most important. Thinking you know the
most. Thinking you deserve better than someone else.

Pride will cause you to go your own way instead of God's way.
Pride makes you think you do not need God's advice or help.

Pride is the root of all sin. It causes you to turn away from
God instead of turning to Him. All disobedience has pride as
its root. All rebellion has pride behind it. All mistreatment
of other people is caused by pride: putting yourself and your
feelings above the other person and their feelings.

The world system promotes people who are proud, and often gives
them great riches. Jesus said pride is evil and defiles a
person. (Mark 7:21-23)

While the world may promote the proud for a short time, their
fame and success will not last.

6 . . . "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble."

Pride is the most serious, and the most subtle, sin. It often
goes unrecognized.


Dear God: please, help me to beware of pride, give me the wisdom to recognize any pride in my life, let me humble myself and shun away all pride in my life.

My Morning Prayer

Heavenly Father I come to you this morning in front of the old rugged cross, I come thanking you for another wonderful nights rest and sleep. It appears that you are going to give us another beautiful day in our lives, I ask you dear God to lead and guide me today to do every thing that you have planned for me to do and praise and glorify your name. Please help me to resist all temptation that may come before me. I thank you for the many blessings that you have bestowed on my family and me. I pray for the many people that are less fortunate then myself. I pray for all the people that have suffered so many desperation in the tornados and the floods. I lift up the names of my friends and neighbors that have Illness and diseases and trials and tribulations that you will bless them and provide them for all their needs. AMEN --- John Davidson
