"But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant. And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted."

Matthew 23:11-12

This gives us an example of the attitude that believers should have; one of humility. We should not desire exaltation in this world but be confident in the knowledge that our Savior has gone before us to prepare a place for us in eternity.


Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

Here are a couple of ideas about gossip sent in by readers: Jessica said that if you are talking about it and you are not part of the problem or solution, then it's gossip.

Another reader said that when someone comes to them with any negative news about a brother or sister, they grab their hand and say, "Let's pray right now!" This seems to have a shock effect because usually the person leaves after prayer, and doesn't come back with any more "news."

What better way to combat gossip than with prayer!!

God Bless You!

--FEATURED FUNNY:

A man's most memorable experience was the famous Johnstown flood. He never stopped talking about it. When he died and went to heaven, he asked if he could tell the people about his experience.

Saint Peter told him he thought it could be arranged. "But you must remember," he cautioned the man, "that Noah will be in the audience."

--ANSWER TO TRIVIA QUESTION:

Q. Who did Jesus say sat in Moses' seat?

A. the scribes and the Pharisees


Then Jesus spoke to the multitudes and to His disciples, saying, "The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat. Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, and do not do."

Matthew 23:1-3

Here Jesus describes the epitome of hypocrisy by showing that the scribes and the Pharisees said and taught the right things, since they taught from the law of God, but did not do what they taught.
