Although I am less than the least of all the Lord’s people… (Ephesians 3:8)
For corn sake, you’re…you’re Paul! Paul the Apostle. Whaddaya mean you are less than the least of God’s people?
Maybe Paul knew his own past, Beloved. Maybe he knew his own heart. Maybe he knew that whatever he looked like on the outside, inside he continued to struggle with thoughts and emotions and deeds that were downright not right.
And yet, he did not let that stop him from serving his Lord, did he? And it certainly did not stop his Lord from using Paul, did it?
Beloved, don’t think too highly of yourself–you know you.
Beloved, don’t think too lowly of yourself–you are the child of the King.
How about this: don’t think too often of yourself. That leaves more room for God to work, anyway.
Happy Friday, Beloved.
