Humbling Ourselves in Dust and Ashes: March 6, 2011

Mar 08, 2011   •  
Scripture – Psalm 1:1-6 (NIV)
1 Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
2 but whose delight is in the law of the LORD,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.

4 Not so the wicked!
They are like chaff
that the wind blows away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

6 For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.

Reflections on today’s sermon:

  1. In what particular areas of my life have I been struggling with pride?
  2. How can I spend Lent as a way to get closer to God?
  3. How can I comfort my friends who are currently going through humbling circumstances?
