Daily Digest #78

Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up. —James 4:10

I like the part when the author of this reflection pointed out vows, promises, commitments and responsibilities. I think these things help greatly in developing humility. One of the books I read stated that the commitments we make define who we are. What are we trying to achieve? Are we trying to prove something to others, or to ourselves? Do we finish what we started, or give up as soon as things become less comfortable? What are our priorities in life? Do they keep us closer to or away from God?

For this, may we assess ourselves and our choices. May we ask God for guidance, that we may not be led astray. May we not be blinded by our material wealth, fame, success or physical beauty. May we never fail to count our blessings, and use them for goodness. May we humble ourselves before God and give glory to His name. May our lives be a reflection of God's love. May we pray for each other always.
