Lord, help keep me humble. Help me to remember that my life, my job, everything I do is to bring You glory. Your word says that if You are lifted up You will draw men to you. It’s not our job to save souls. It’s our job to show people the love and grace of Christ so that they will desire to know You.
As I learned this weekend it’s easy to want to hold onto the praises of people and let go of the criticism but sometimes it’s the criticism that shows God to us and allows us to show God to others.
My desire is that I use the words and the gifts you have given me to be an encouragement not only to others but to myself as well.
Thank you Lord for this opportunity. Amen.
