“For who regards you as superior? What do you have that you did not receive? And if you did receive it, why do you boast as if you had not received it?” (1 Cor. 4:7)
This verse jumped off the page as I was reading and thinking about Paul’s words to the Corinthian church this week. So much of what we have and are able to do comes not from our own skill or gifts. We really have received so much. Even the doors sovereignty opened to us are not of our doing.
In my mind this calls for humility and thankfulness. Humility because we have received so much. Thankfulness because He is the giver of all good gifts.
Take a moment to ponder this verse.
- What thoughts come to your mind?
- What are some of the things you have?
- Thank the Lord for what He has done and is doing for you.
