Humble in Spirit

One thing I wanted to post real quick was verse 13 of Proverbs 20. It says "Do not love sleep, lest you become poor; open your eyes and you will be Satisfied with food." This morning I slept till 9:30. My dad came into my room and woke me up this morning. I would have stayed in bed untill 10:30 had he not got me up. When I read this verse this morning I felt that this was the verse that I neaded to hear today.

Also, in Bible time tonight we read 1 Peter 3:8; and in it Peter gives a list of what we need to be like. One thing he mentions is being "humble in spirit" or in other words puting others above ourself. It doesn't matter if your wants are more important than your siblings wants. When Jesus came down from heaven He was thinking of His Father and us, not Himself. He was putting His Father's will and us as more important than Himself.

That's true, we need to forget our own wants, cause they're really not very important at all! When I think of how Jesus gave up His NEEDS, not want's, FOR US!! The whole reason He came to earth was to save US, because we like automaticly sin.And God wants us to be with Him, but He gives us that choice, because.....because we sinned, and we arn't deserving of Him, but Jesus came down TO save us..... that's the point right? Sorry! Carriing on too much....sorry!

It is true that He came down to save us, don't get me wrong, but he also came down to please His Father.

Titus 2:14
"[Jesus] gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds."

Looks like He got what He came for.
...for us...for Himself...for His own possession,...
