A Daily Devotion for Wednesday, March 9


1 Samuel 2:3


”Do not keep talking so proudly or let your mouth speak such arrogance, for the Lord is a God who knows, and by him deeds are weighed.“


How wonderful to be reading words of scripture spoken by a woman! Hannah is praying to God the day she dedicates Samuel to him. I wonder if she is thinking of anyone in particular when she speaks the words about arrogance. When I read them, my first thought is, “Well, at least I am not arrogant.“ But I am not fooling God with this automatic thought. Sometimes arrogance is hidden away, but it is still there. I know I struggle with this, and should pray to have God point it out to me when it affects my words and behavior, or even just my attitude.

Holy Father, help me to see my arrogance, and help me to feel it when it stirs. I am no better than any other of your creation. I know this is true. Amen
