Humility

Think back to a moment when you were a child. A time when you looked like a fool and you didn't care. You didn't bother to even think that anyone might laugh at you.

Psalm 95: 6-7 says: Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the LORD our Maker; for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care.

When we as Christians, some of us, born into Christianity, read this, no matter how many times you read it, you might be thinking: "Wow, I really need to go to church and sing with my eyes focused on God." But look! It says, let us bow down. Let us kneel before the LORD. Can this or should this be taken literally?

Why are we so afraid to look like a fool these days? Be a fool for God. There's no sense in looking mature on your outward appearance if that's not going to help you mature in your walk with God.

So why go through the trouble of changing your ways in order to worship God?
1. Be flexible. God made changes in his plans for you too. His world was supposed to be perfect, but because of us, he had to send his son to die for us so that we may live.
2. He deserves our utmost praise. Praising as if you were in room all alone and no one to notice the wacky things you do. That's worship from the heart.

So I just finished my first day of classes at Syracuse University. YAY!
The verse I posted above is the verse of the day from biblegateway.com. I might post something once a week based on the verse of the day and whatever comes to mind is here for you to read.

Peace out =)
