Christian Devotional – November 12, 2012

VERSE:
Proverbs 27:2–Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; a stranger, and not your own lips.

TRUTH:
Pride tells us to boast and brag on ourselves. However, the advice here is to not spend time sharing and boasting about ourselves. Others who have seen our deeds are to be the ones who speak our praises. Our own boastful pride only serves to lift up ourselves where humility serves to glorify God in everything because He is responsible for all that we are able to do.

RESPONSE:
Father, thank You for whatever praise and blessing You choose to bestow. I will only seek to obey You and will not waste time praising myself. All praise and glory goes to You.
