Humility and grace

RE Verse reading–Acts 2:42-47; Romans 12:3-13 (day six) 
“For by the grace given to me I say to every one of you; do not think or yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.”  (Romans 12:3) Humility is a blessing.  To the humble man and to his friends.   “God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”  (James 4:6)  It is an important factor in the equation of Christian fellowship.  Proud people compete. Humble people recognize the value of every member and make allowances for the needs of all to be met. They join a team and do so gladly.  Paul was powerfully gifted as a preacher/missionary.  Even so, he knew that the God’s grace gives each of us only “a measure” of the faith that is necessary for the full work of the church.  With grace comes humility.  In theory at least.
