Pain

Walking through the Dollar Store, suddenly I thought of all the errors I made in my life, inwardly cringing I looked up and saw a sign that began with the word “PAIN.”   Appropriate.  You really appreciate Christ’s forgiveness and love when you can’t fix the past and can only look forward. God’s word says it’s important to be humble.

“Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, ‘Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.’ And God granted his request.” 1 Chronicles 4:10 (NIV).

“Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for

‘God resists the proud,
But gives grace to the humble.’” 1 Peter 5:5 (NKJV).
