A Sin You and I Are Especially Tempted to Commit

Yesterday we noted that “the LORD takes pleasure in those who fear him, in those who hope in his steadfast love” (Psalm 147:11). Here is what he does not “take pleasure in”: the sin of presumption. Today’s stories illustrate the biblical precept, “Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring” (Proverbs 27:1).

The Downfall of Too Many Great Men

When God is our strength, we stay humble. When we lean on his sufficient grace, we know that our self-indulgence never leads to peace and joy. It's one of the Bible's wonderful ironies – you can't be a great man until you know that only God is great.
