Application: My mother has a unique way of humbling me. At my ordination, Gina Wu, the matriarch of the church I was starting in NYC, approached my parents and said 'you should be very proud of your son.' My mother responded to Gina with "we are proud of all our children." I laugh about it today, but my mother knows who gets the credit. So she, like Paul, will brag about God's work in me and not me. Smart woman, my mother.
Prayer: Lord remind us that you are the one who gets all the credit. Even if you have to humble us, time and time again so that we can remember that.
