Proverbs 16:18 (NLT)...

FROM TODAY’S READING (3/20/2019)...

“I like their energy and I like their enthusiasm and I like the fact that they are confident. But it can tip over into arrogance, and arrogance can tip over into sloppiness and negligence.”
Marcus Lemonis (“The Profit”)

1 Samuel 2:3 (NLT) Stop acting so proud and haughty! Don’t speak with such arrogance! For the Lord is a God who knows what you have done; he will judge your actions.

Proverbs 27:1-2 (NLT) Don’t brag about tomorrow, since you don’t know what the day will bring. Let someone else praise you, not your own mouth— a stranger, not your own lips.

Proverbs 16:18 (NLT) Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall.

Philippians 2:3-5 (NLT) Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.

John 14:27 (NLT) I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.

2 Timothy 1:7 (NLT) For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.

Psalm 16:7-11 (NLT)...

FROM TODAY’S READING (3/18/2019)...

I arise today through
God’s strength to pilot me,
God’s might to uphold me,
God’s wisdom to guide me,
God’s eye to look before me,
God’s ear to hear meek
God’ Word to speak for me,
God’s hand to guard me,
God’s way to lie before me,
God’s host to secure me,
against snares of devils,
against temptations of vices,
against inclinations of nature,
against everyone who will wish me ill,
afar and anear,
alone and in a crowd.”
Saint Patrick

Psalms 16:7-11 (NLT) I will bless the Lord who guides me; even at night my heart instructs me. I know the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me. No wonder my heart is glad, and I rejoice. My body rests in safety. 
For you will not leave my soul among the dead or allow your holy one to rot in the grave. You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever.
