A Daily Devotion for Wednesday, July 28
Luke 9: 48
Then he said to them, “Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For who is least among you all- he is the greatest.”
This verse calls me out. There is still a tendency in me to allow my education and good fortune to “elevate” me, somehow. Even as I write this I have to smile, because it is only in my own eyes that I am elevated. God knows where I came from. God gave me everything that I have “earned”. My job is to remember where I came from, and to remember to give credit where credit is due. I am no different than any other in the eyes of God. He loves us all and has the same dream for all of us.
Lord, help me to be humble. I am a tiny part of your creation, special to you but no more special than any other. Like a parent with many children, you love us all. Amen
