But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.” – James 4:6 (NIV)
Most of us don’t have a goal of humility. Why? Because it’s not something our culture deems important. We look at people who have accomplished a lot as heroes. We celebrate singers and celebrities. Often, the last thing on most of our minds is practicing humility.
However, in today’s verse, we see that God opposes the proud.
Whoa. That’s a pretty strong statement. Especially in a world that feels like we have to be right and defend ourselves all that time.
Today’s Truth: Pride is an ungodly attitude.
But the truth is, God opposes the proud and gives us more grace and favor if we’re humble. So if you want to be walking in God’s grace and getting more of it in your life, you’ve got to practice humility. It’s not always easy trusting God to bring justice and to exalt you, but it’s the best way.
