Deuteronomy 12:1-32; Song of Solomon 2:8-3:5; Luke 9:37-62

Do you see a man wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him. Proverbs 26:12, NKJV

One theme in Proverbs is the danger of pride. The great principle repeated twice in the New Testament, that God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble (James 4:6; 1 Peter 5:5), finds its origin in the book of Proverbs. But who is the man wise in his own eyes? Is it not, the one who thinks his ways are better than others; the one who thinks his viewpoint is more valid than others and the one who thinks his experience is more authentic than others? Humble yourself now. God decides whose ways, viewpoints and experiences have value. Trust Him to reveal it. —Shane Johnson

We bow low; faces down to the ground in Your presence Lord,
With our tears we wash Your feet; we bow low, falling on our knees. —Gateway Worship
