Towards the end of last year, I read a book called “Humility:True Greatness”. (And yes, I recommend it.) In that book, it suggested five things to think about upon rising. Well, knowing me, I knew I’d never remember all of them at the same time, much less remember to think of them every morning, much less actually do it. So! I came up with a plan. I found an image and either a Bible or hymn verse that went along with each thing, and then printed them out and put them on the wall near my bed.
Here is the first one: on this one, you remind yourself of what Christ did on the cross and… the fact that it was YOUR sin that held Him there. You contrast His goodness and sacrifice with yourself and just… bask in the wonder of it.
One the second one, you remind yourself how much you need Him for everything. Every single breath.You remind yourself that there is NOTHING you can do without Him. (If that doesn’t humble you, I don’t know what will…) (And yes, the girl is a bit odd looking… Cheryl likes to tell me that.)
Well, there’s part one… the next three will be coming soon. I hope.
