    Verse 3: This is a good scripture to keep in mind with regards to having a balanced view of ourselves. We live in a self-obsessed time and we must guard against thinking more of ourselves than necessary.

    I am encouraged with the writings of Paul because he was a rough character as I am and now I can be happy that there is hope for me too! Being a disciple isn’t easy and because I believe the Lord has picked me out for his gift of Salvation and eternal life I press on. I think we humans are harder on ourselves than we should be, yes sinful nature but God is faithful!
