Vacation Scripture #4

Written by Bill Grandi on September 6th, 2019

Jo and I are on our much-needed trip away-a trip to Alaska-courtesy of the folks at OVCF (the church I pastor). It was given to us after a tough season of ministry (losing two very close friends to cancer within a few weeks of each other) and in celebration of 45 years of my ordination.  Since I won’t be taking my computer and despise using my phone to do any type of blogging, I will be basically incognito from Tuesday, September 3 through Tuesday, September 10. I plan (notice the word Plan) to be back in the office on Wednesday and therefore resume my regular devotions.

So in anticipation of that, I thought I would share with you the Scriptures from Proverbs I underlined my last time through (August). I try to read a chapter of Proverbs for a month, every other month.  So here is the Scripture I highlighted on August 6th.

“There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes.” (vv.16-17a)

There are more listed.  Pride is a killer.  I need not look down on anyone.

Now it is your turn to think about it.

    Pride comes before the fall…

    You already know that I believe the most beautiful trait we can possess is the trait of humility.

    It’s impossible to find God in pride…
