“Glory to God” – Acts 9:32-43
Humility and gratitude are tough enough one at a time.
They sound easy until we try them on for size… on ourselves.
“For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” – Luke 14:11
Peter knew who the real miracle worker was.
Give credit where credit is due!
“Aeneas,” Peter said to him, “Jesus Christ heals you. Get up and roll up your mat.” Immediately Aeneas got up.” – Acts 9:34
Humility is not about what you do, but who you are.
Practicing humility deflects the attention from “me to God.”
“Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.” – Romans 12:10
