No Cause for Pride

No Cause for Pride

All that we are and all that we have comes from God. From our innate character traits to personal strengths, skillsets, and resources, God is the giver and we are the recipients. The human tendency is to forget that we are not self-made, to edge God out, and to make ourselves the masters of our own existence. The start of leading like Jesus begins with acknowledging that we not our own.

Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. —Psalm 100:3

Prayer: Lord, our God, we acknowledge that You made us, and we belong to You. You created us according to Your design for Your good purpose and pleasure. Help us to gratefully receive and acknowledge who You made us to be, and to give You the credit for all that You accomplish through our efforts. May we exalt You only through our lives, just as Jesus did. In His name we pray, amen.
