Pride is the deadliest of the seven deadly sins (see Proverbs 6:16-17) and today’s devotional give you a wonderful antidote for it. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
“Brethren, I need not enlarge upon our omissions: how we omit to pray; how we forget to study the Word with intelligent care; how we are remiss in keeping up daily fellowship with God; how slow we are in serving; how impatient in suffering; how backward in almsgiving; how apt to compromise with the world! If the Lord should mark iniquity, who among us could stand? When you think of what you have not done, who among you can talk about perfection? It is not so much sins of commission that trouble some of us — for by God’s grace we are for the most part kept from such transgressions — but sins of omission bear terrible witness against us. Who can number them? Who can escape their accusing voice? Thou hast done well; — thou oughtest to have done much better. Thou hast done much; — thou mightest have done far more…. O brethren, if we have any idea of what the height of the standard of holiness is we shall be far more inclined to lament our failures before God than to vaunt our holiness before men.” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XXXVI, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1890), p. 376]
