Humility Leads to Wisdom

This week during my Bible reading I finished the book of Mark and started the book of Luke. Some thoughts from my week of reading Scripture included the following:
  • In Mark 14 Jesus valued the woman who perfumed him and stated that the poor will always be with us. This passage reminds me of the contrast of valuing Jesus and betraying him like Judas did.
  • Numbers 12 states that Moses was the most humble man on Earth. Now that’s a compliment! God spoke to him face to face. Now that’s a privilege!
  • Why do we pray before eating a meal? See Mark 14:22
  • Pride leads to disgrace; humility leads to wisdom (Proverbs 11:2)
  • The fool says there is no God (Psalm 53:1)
  • In Numbers 15 a man is taken out and stoned because he gathered wood on the Sabbath. Now that’s swift and severe punishment!
  • Jesus was declared risen from the grave by a “man” dressed in white at the tomb (Mark 16) That's what our upcoming Easter weekend is all about.
  • Luke 1 states that Luke investigated and wrote an orderly account. My kind of man...
That’s it for this week, thanks for reading.
