Description: Humility is an essential characteristic of true piety, or of the person who is right with God. God humbles men in order to bring them to Himself, and it is when men humble themselves before Him that they are accepted. To “walk humbly with your God” completes the Divine requirements.
Description: “Many today love traditional wedding ceremonies with biblical language who would be repulsed if they comprehended the meaning. A pledge to take a woman for his wife commits a man to sharing life in its entirety. Man and wife are heirs together of God’s gracious gift of one life. It demands of him selfless thoughtfulness of her. The New Testament repeatedly urges men to love their wives and be considerate towards them.” — Walter Chantry, THE SHADOW OF THE CROSS
Description: The Good Shepherd is one of the thrusts of Biblical scripture. This illustration encompasses many ideas, including God’s care for his people and his discipline to correct the wandering sheep. The tendency of humans to put themselves into danger’s way and their inability to guide and take care of themselves apart from the direct power and leading of God is also reinforced with the metaphor of sheep in need of a shepherd.
