The world proposes two entirely different ways to keep score.  One of them leads to pride and selfishness.  The other leads to humility and God-centeredness.  Let's follow Jesus' example of humble service!  - Mike Wittmer

🌈Elohim is the Hebrew word for God that appears in the very first sentence of the bible. When we pray to Elohim, we remember that he is the one who began it all, creating heavens and the earth and separating light from darkness, water from dry land, night from day.  Elohim, the plural form of El, is used not to indicate a belief in many gods but to emphasize the majesty of the one true God.  This ancient name of God contains the idea of God's authority and sovereignty. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.  Gen. 1:1 What do you think it means to be created in "the image of God"?  How would your life change if you lived with the constant awareness that he created you to bear his image? - Ann Spangler


Humility Brings Wisdom Most fights aren't about policy & principle, or about right or wrong; they're almost always about pride.  "Pride leads to conflict". Quarrels are fuelled by pride, by needing to be right, by wanting our way, or by defending our turf or our egos.  On the other side, wisdom resides with the well-advised-those who listen & learn, those who allow themselves to be instructed.  There is wisdom in those who allow themselves to be instructed.  There is wisdom in those who humble themselves - those who set aside their own selfish ambition; who acknowledge the limits of their own understanding; who listen to other person's point of view; who allow their own ideas to be corrected.  This is the wisdom from God that spreads peace wherever it goes.  - David Roper Where there is strife, there is pride,  but wisdom is found in those who take advice.  - Proverbs 13:10


🙏Prayer is not bending God to my will, but it is bringing my will into conformity with God's will, so that His works may work in and through me  - E Stanley Jones

prayer for his gifts

Dear Heavenly Father, We come before you in gratitude for the countless blessings you bestow upon us. We recognize that in life, there are moments of discouragement and weariness, but we also acknowledge your promise to provide us with good gifts. First, we thank you for the gift of endurance. When we are tempted to lose sight of our purpose, you empower us through your Spirit to persevere. Grant us the strength to continue doing good works, not for our glory but for your glory. Second, we seek your enduring encouragement. In times of despair and when the world lets us down, remind us of your unfailing love. Let us rest in the knowledge that we are your beloved children, constantly transformed by your grace. Lastly, we ask for the unity of mind toward each other. Help us see others as you see them, filled with your love and potential. May we strive for unity, fostering a spirit of love and acceptance rather than division. Lord, in our moments of weakness, renew our faith and resolve. G
