Simple Grace - - Mood Index -

“Dear Lord, af­ter months of try­ing un­suc­cess­fully to find em­ploy­ment in my field of Web de­sign, I’m now work­ing as a res­tau­rant host­ess—and I’m so hu­mil­i­ated that I want to quit. It’s hon­est work, but when­ever I have to seat peo­ple I know and let them see what a step down I’ve taken, I cringe in­side. I feel as though they’re laugh­ing at me. How do I move past this sense of mor­ti­fi­ca­tion?”

Wis­dom of the Word

When pride comes, then comes dis­grace, but with the hum­ble is wis­dom.

—Solomon to the men of Is­rael, Proverbs 11:2

We un­der­stand and yet…

When we lose our place in the so­cial or pro­fes­sional peck­ing order, our self-es­teem suf­fers. We know mat­ters of worldly sta­tus shouldn’t de­fine us. How can we do bet­ter?
