The Daily Nosh: I Peter 5:5b

…And all of you, clothes yourselves with humility toward one another, for “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” (TLV) 

 

Nosh 

It is amazing to see how many verses in the Scripture emphasize the importance and blessing of humility. Peter says that if we put on humility like we do clothing in our daily interactions with God and man that divine mercy and grace will characterize and permeate our lives. Pride, on the other hand, produces the frightening and destructive result of active resistance from God Himself. I think we can all agree that it is wise and judicious to avoid provoking God in this way.
