Proverbs 11:2 When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.
O Lord, what a contrast! “Moses was a very humble man, more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth” (Nu 11:3). Peter said, “Even if I have to die with you, I will never disown you” (Mk 14:31). O, the disgrace Peter felt after he did (3 times!) what he said he never would do. Help me identify when my own pride is welling up within me. Keep me from thinking my faith is so strong I won’t fall. Grant me humility like Moses. And may that humility show itself in the things I say today and the way I treat others in my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
