Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.

- Romans 12:16

We develop most of our pride because we pitch ourselves against other people and what they possess. This verse is a good reminder of what God says all through his Word. If we aimed for this one thing, eventually, our lives would improve beyond measure; our capacity to love would be vast, and each of the nine fruit of the spirit would mature and be picked by God and used more by people. 

Quote: "The only person you should try to be better than, is the person you were yesterday." Author unknown

Today's Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you that I am trying to be better than I was yesterday. Please help me focus on the goals you have for me, and not let me wander into the realm of conceit.
