Proverbs 3:34

Surely He scorns the scornful,
But gives grace to the humble.



Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

One doesn't need to feel inferior in order to be humble. I have heard it defined as having an honest opinion of who you are--your worth in the sight of God and others, both your strengths and weaknesses. The essential element here, is not to be scornful of others. But if we are honest about our own weaknesses, the latter becomes easier to do.

God Bless You!

--FEATURED FUNNY:

In a misguided burst of creativity, I installed a night-light into a conch shell I found on the beach. My wife took an instant dislike to it, and at the next yard sale, it was the first thing she put out.

I felt vindicated when a woman kept coming back to check it out and finally bought it.

"That'll look great in your home," I said.

"Oh," she replied. "It's not for me." My bridge club is having a charity sale, and we were asked to bring the most hideous thing we could find. What I have here is the winner!"
