Gift: Counsel (Right Judgment) – With the gift of right judgment, we know the difference between right and wrong, and we choose to do what is right. A person with right judgment avoids sin and lives out the values taught by Jesus.
Reading: So should it be with you. When you have done all you have been commanded, say, ‘We are unprofitable servants; we have done what we were obliged to do.'” (Luke 17:10)
Observation: I am hearing this morning that I must not get too high on myself for following the will of God. It is only in humility that I can continue to hear the call of God to continue to do His will in my life. If I find myself getting too proud of my accomplishments, if there are any, I will try to remember the words of Jesus, that I am an unprofitable servant and nothing without the grace of God.
Personification: Humility (Gentleness) – An inner strength that permits us to be aware of our own abilities without having to make a show of them. I have chosen to concentrate on displaying the fruit of humility in my life before, but this morning I got a whole new understanding of it in my life. I will choose to remind myself of the unworthiness of me, rather than the strengths that I have that come from God anyway.
Prayer: Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom God’s love commits me here, ever this day be at my side. To light and guard, to rule and guide. I ask this, as always, in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy Spirit. Amen.
