Humble yourselves before the Lord

Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.

Brothers, do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against his brother or judges him speaks against the law and judges it. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it, but sitting in judgment on it.

James 4:10,11 NIV


Why standest thou afar off, O LORD?

Why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble?

The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined.

For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth.

Psalm 10:1-3 NIV


The highway of the upright avoids evil; he who guards his way guards his life.

Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.

Better to be lowly in spirit and among the oppressed than to share plunder with the proud.

Proverbs 16:17-19 NIV


An angry man stirs up dissension, and a hot-tempered one commits many sins.

A man's pride brings him low, but a man of lowly spirit gains honor.

Proverbs 29:22,23


Thanks be unto God for His wonderful gift: Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God is the object of our faith; the only faith that saves is faith in Him.

Deaconess Deborah
