I was reading though a scripture yesterday that had a significant impact on me. I love discovering new verses in the Bible that I hadn't discovered before now.
If I don't have a devotional guide I will pop open the Bible to Proverbs and read the chapter that corresponds to the date. Since it was the 27th, I read chapter 27.
This is the verse that I hit me:
"The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold, but man is tested by the praise he receives." Proverbs 27:21 NIV
This is just a reminder about how important it is to teach and model humility.
Everything we have, every gift, every skill, every talent, every ability, is from God. Without Him, we are nothing.
