Whoa There Oh Great One

 For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. Romans 12:3

Humility is very important. Needless to say probably everyone has boasted at one time or another but I had a boss in the Army at Fort Campbell, Kentucky who would say "Let your virtues speak for themselves". Military members are awarded with all sorts of ribbons and medals for outstanding valor and service and most, if not all, would humbly say they did not deserve it. One of our very own young men whom our prayer group, Moms in Prayer, had been lifting up for several years, was severely wounded last year in Afghanistan. He was recently interviewed on CBS TV and I have a link to that at the end of my devotion. This young man endured much and received the Purple Heart and maybe other awards I am unaware of. He is a brave deserving young man who lost friends and comrades in the attack he was wounded in. 

Awards and recognition are extremely nice to receive. When you are the honoree or some special degree, award, or recognized some other way try to be humble and let God have the glory. It is God who gives me the ideas for my writing. To Him goes all the glory. 

PRAYER: I thank you Lord for awards, honors, tributes and all forms of human praise. When and if I do receive and honor help me remember to give you the praise and glory. In Jesus' name. Amen.
