"Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you."
1 Peter 5:6-7
Br. Scott led a lovely Morning Prayer service this past Sunday. His sermon focused on the Epistle lesson from 1 Peter 5:5-11. Peter wrote this letter to Christian Jewish exiles. He was concerned about their welfare and behavior. Br. Scott reminded us that pride is one of the seven deadly sins. The current celebration of Pride Month is not an example of Godly humility but we should not be prideful in response. Peter also advised that we cast our anxiety on God because He cares for us. As Christians we need to bring this message to our anxious world. As the world wide church struggles, we should remember both He will be with us in strength and we live in communion with brothers and sisters ready to help us.
