When I get one of my devotional emails, sometimes I just leave it in my inbox, planning to make a blog post that never materializes. So here's a bunch of verses that spoke to me that I found still waiting in my inbox:
Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ.
Galatians 6:2 (NASB)
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
Ephesians 4:2 (NASB)
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.
Ephesians 2:10 (NASB) - Sounds like another one of those "God's plans" verses
No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.
1 Corinthians 10:13 (NASB) - One of the things that got me through law school and that continues to get me through life is that God will never give you more than you can handle. This verse exemplifies that idea to me.
Before a downfall the heart is haughty, but humility comes before honor.
Proverbs 18:12 (NASB)
I like the New Living Translation a little better (copied from my devotional email):
“Haughtiness goes before destruction; humility precedes honor.” Proverbs 18:12 (NLT) - Reminds you a little of my favorite verse doesn't it?
My wounds fester and are loathsome because of my sinful folly.
Psalm 38:5 (NASB)
In my distress I called to the LORD; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears.
Psalm 18:6 (NASB)
