Scripture of the Day:

Proverbs 11:2

When pride comes, then comes dishonor, But with the humble is wisdom.”

Shame RX of the Day:

When we acknowledge our shame but don’t remain in it, we are set free from any negative effects of shame.

So why does shame bug us so much?

We don’t like feeling inferior. Less than. Who does? Seems obvious. We would rather deny its existence than face it.

We would rather deny its existence than face it.

At the root of shame is our delicate pride that does not want to believe there could be something wrong with us.

Or maybe there is another way when we encounter shame and it causes our prideful feathers to ruffle . . .

And while I am not advocating that we should all go about in search of discovering our shame, in humility we recognize that we are a fallen people in need of God’s intervention. This recognition takes the pressure off of us to think we could ever be perfect in the first place.

When we acknowledge our shame but don’t remain in it, we are set free from any negative effects of shame.

Amen! Shame off us!
