Humble yourself before the Lord

"Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and [in His time] He shall lift you up." --James 4:10

Things are in a different perspective when we are down on our knees.

Take up your cross, and follow me

“If anyone desires to come after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever will lose his life for my sake, the same will save it. For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses or forfeits his own self?" (Luke 9:23-25)


He sends rain on the just and the unjust

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor, and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who mistreat you and persecute you, that you may be children of your Father who is in heaven. For He makes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Don't even the tax collectors do the same? If you only greet your friends, what more do you do than others? Don't even the tax collectors do the same? Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect." (Matthew 5:43-48)


Bringing in a Lamp

He said to them, "Do you bring in a lamp to put it under a bowl or a bed? Instead, don't you put it on its stand? For whatever is hidden is meant to be disclosed, and whatever is concealed is meant to be brought out into the open. If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear."

"Consider carefully what you hear," he continued. "With the measure you use, it will be measured to you--and even more."

(Mark 4:21-24)


Don't count sheeps; talk to the Shepherd

Can't sleep? Don't count sheeps, talk to the Shepherd.

Call on the LORD, the good shepherd; and you shall not lack. He will make you to lie down in green pastures: he will lead you beside the still waters. He will restore your soul: he will lead you in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake. Yea, though you walk through the valley of the shadow of death, you will fear no evil: for He is with you; His rod and His staff they will comfort you. (Psalms 23:1-4)
