God opposes the proud, but shows favor to the humble. James 4:6
In the story, the “Father’s Love,” Jesus explained that it was when the son “came to his senses” that he decided to go back to his father (Luke 15). The son recognized his only option was to humble himself. “I will set out and go back to my father” (Luke 15:18). The misuse of our freedom will have no better results. We have been called to live free, but we cannot use our freedom to “indulge in our sinful nature” (Galatians 5:13).
The proud indulges the sinful nature, while the humble ignores the it. When we try to sustain our skin with sin, it will never satisfy. God gives grace to the humble because they see the need of it!
Are you indulging your sinful nature, or ignoring it?
Live Forever Free,
