humbled

Word: “The Lord Almighty has a day in store for all the proud and lofty, for all that is exalted … for every lofty tower and every fortified wall, for every trading ship and every stately vessel. The arrogance of all people will be brought low and human pride humbled; the Lord alone will be exalted in that day, and the idols will totally disappear.” (Isaiah 2:12,15-18)
Wonder: Mankind’s achievements are many and marvelous! But our accomplishments often become an end to themselves. We tend to place our stock in our resources and our doings rather than in God’s grace and his glory. We come to think more of ourselves than we do of him. Of what do you need to humble yourself before God, before he humbles you?

Word: “The Lord Almighty has a day reserved for all the proud and lofty, for all that is exalted … for every high tower and every fortified wall, for every trading ship and every rich vessel. The arrogance of all people will be brought low and human pride humbled; the Lord alone will be exalted in that day, and all of humankind’s idols will be gone for good.” (Isaiah 2:12,15-18)

Wonder: Humankind’s achievements are, without doubt, many and marvelous! But our accomplishments often become ends to themselves. We tend to place our stock in our resources and our doings rather than in God’s grace and his glory. We come to think more of ourselves than we do of him. Of what do you need to humble yourself before God, before he humbles you?

One thought on “humbled

  1. I love this picture! It seems that the ship in not passing trough the bridge, but passing beside it.

    This bridge is magnificent, but if you see from the sky appears so small. You can check the satellite view in Google maps and maybe you can realize so small we are to the God’s eyes.

    Good job David! The word is good chosen, and the wonder is well presented.
