Devotional Challenge Day #1
So today in my devotions, I read two different passages and both were talking about not worrying about the little things like food, clothes..etc..because we can so caught up in those things that we miss the more important things in life. We know that God will supply our needs. The first passage talked about how God provided for the fowls of the air and how God counts us more precious than those birds. But then in the second passage, it talks about seeking God and His Kingdom first and all the blessings will be added to you. What really stuck out to me was not worrying about the little things but wanting to be a part of the work for my King. 1 Peter 5:6-7: Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. This verse is really something that I struggle with a lot. Humility is a hard virtue for each and every person because we are human and it's our fallen nature to be prideful. But we as Christians have the choice you turn away from it and walk in the Spirit.
