free from pride

July 18, 2016

 “Likewise, you who are younger and of lesser rank, be subject to the elders (the ministers and spiritual guides of the church)—[giving them due respect and yielding to their counsel]. Clothe (apron) yourselves, all of you, with humility [as the garb of a servant, [a]so that its covering cannot possibly be stripped from you, with freedom from pride and arrogance] toward one another. For God sets Himself against the proud (the insolent, the overbearing, the disdainful, the presumptuous, the boastful)—[and He opposes, frustrates, and defeats them], but gives grace (favor, blessing) to the humble.” – I Peter 5:5, Amplified

I don’t need or want God to set Himself against me, oppose, frustrate, or defeat me.  What I need is His grace, favor, and blessing.  What happens is a result of what  I choose to clothe myself with.
