Welcome to Verse of the Day!

Today's Bible Verse:

1 Corinthians 10:12

Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall. (ESV)

Today's Inspiring Thought: Take Heed Lest You Fall

This verse should be a cousin to Proverbs 16:18: "Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall."

It grieves us deeply (as it should) when we hear about the​ moral failure of a well-respected Christian leader.

But instead of shaking our heads in shame, we ought to bow our knees in prayer. First, we should intercede for our fallen comrade, and second, recognize our own vulnerability and pray for ourselves not to fall.

Remember, as Paul urged, if you think you're standing strong, you may be the next to fall. Stay alert and humble, knowing that moral failure can happen to any believer. The problem is pride, and each and every one of us battles it.
