Coram Deo: Daily Meditations on God’s Presence - Tuesday, October 1, 2013

Humility and Exaltation

Matthew 23:5–12

Matthew Henry comments, “It is a gracious ambition to covet to be really more holy than others, but it is a proud ambition to covet to appear so. It is good to excel in real piety, but not to exceed in outward shows.” All of us are probably concerned with personal holiness, but are we equally concerned not to show others just how holy we are? Is your service to the church done for God’s eyes or the eyes of other people?

For further study:

Proverbs 16:18; 29:23

The Bible in a year:

Isaiah 21–23
