May you humble yourself before the living God,
trusting in his divine power to lift you up.
Don’t think of yourself more highly than you ought,
but neither think of yourself more lowly than you ought,
knowing that both of these are lies from the deceiver.
Don’t compare yourself to others,
knowing that each person is gifted by God.
Instead encourage others whose gifts aren’t your own,
knowing they provide a vital role in the Kingdom of God.
And in all you do,
may you keep perspective of your place before God,
knowing his righteousness and holiness,
crying with your heart for mercy.
