today's reading.
Proverbs 3:7-8    Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones.

Deep down we think we know what's best for us and that we're pretty smart. That's human nature and basically the message of the world. But that message of "self" and the message God gives us in Proverbs 3:7 are polar opposites. And then when you read on through verse 8, you also see that the benefits of surrendering to God and following His wisdom are HUGE. 

So what are things that you do (or have done) to help you let go of self-pride? How have you experienced "healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones" as a result of surrendering to God?Tami W.
