Grace for the Humble

God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.
— I Peter 5:5

I’ve always loved the books of I and II Peter; I think Peter has such a clear way of communicating basic but essential truths about our relationship with Jesus. I Peter contains perhaps one of the most famous verses about the sin of pride in the Bible. Pride - and on the flip side humility - is kind of like a magnet when it comes to God. Pride repels, humility attracts. Today I’ve got a short but succinct devotional from Max Lucado that addresses the sin of pride, and the counterpoint of humility. One brings curse, the other grace. I don’t know about you but I could use some more grace!
