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?
