humility



"Everything is permissible" – but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible"—but not everything is constructive. Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others.

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. Do not cause anyone to stumble, whether Jews, Greeks or the church of God – even as I try to please everybody in every way. For I am not seeking my own good but the good of many, so that they may be saved.

- Excerpts from the First Letter to the Corinthians

***

It’s not an enviable job, but if something’s gotta be done, it’s gotta be done.

My only aim –
to speak the truth in love,
to correct,
to guide.

May our hearts be humble enough to listen…

…without prejudice.

***

Sanctify us by the truth, Your word is truth.
- John 17:17 (ESV)
