Word of the Day.... September 13, 2012

It is better to be humble in spirit
with the lowly than to divide the spoil
with the proud.
Proverbs 16:19

I love Proverbs.  It has such a great way of reminding us to live like Jesus.  To be humble and unselfish as we go about our daily living.  Have you ever noticed that when we are living “in” God’s Word that there is balance in our lives?  When we are truly unselfish and generous with what the Lord has given us, money, time, energy, the fruit of that is gentleness, thoughtfulness and a humble and servant hearted leadership.  It will even spill over into all parts of our lives.  The husband is unselfish he puts his own wants and desires on the side to meet the needs of his wife and family.  When the mother is unselfish, she doesn’t get irritated when she has to change her agenda for the sake of her children.  When a Christian is unselfish it is saying no to self and leaving pride to place to operate.
