Reflections on Shame and Glory

Our shame is to His glory; our glory is to His shame. As we decrease, so He increases. (Psalm 83:16-18)

A prayer: Lord God, may the eyes of the world that look upon me see You. And may You day by day strengthen the resolve of my humility that I might reflect Your thoughts, Your words, and Your actions. For I know that humility leads me to You. Make me aware of my shameful ways, and make me even more aware of the glory of Jesus revealed in the forgiveness of those shameful ways.

Might I decrease, that you may increase.
