The First Letter in the Alphabet of Wisdom

I’m enjoying some great fellowship with CH Spurgeon in preperation for Sunday’s worship. Here is something that stirred my heart and that each one of us would do well to reflect on.

Read this and reflect on James 4:13-17.

“Is it so, O man, that thy life is self governed? Is there not, after all, One greater than thyself? Is there not a higher power that can speed thee or stop thee? If thou dost not know this, thou hast not yet learned the first letter of the alphabet of wisdom. May God teach thee that everything is not at your disposal; but that the Lord reigneth, the Lord sitteth King for ever and ever!”

God opposes the proud but give grace to the humble!
