A Prayer for Tuesday, October 2, 2012


Someone said that humility is not thinking less of yourself but rather thinking of yourself less.

Jesus said that we are to love our neighbor as we love ourselves.

Paul said that we should regard others as better than ourselves (Philippians 2:3).

Help us, O God, to put all of those truths together that we might live a life of true humility. Help us to understand how valuable we are to you and to realize how loved we are by you that we might love ourselves in the right way. Help us then in the strength of such love to love others and to put their lives and concerns ahead of our own.

Give us healthy humility, O God, that we might love and respect ourselves and others in the ways that are best, in the ways that reflect the life and love of Christ.
