Humility Comes Before Honor

Things are beginning to heat up for the Gilyard trial. There may be another delay or two, but we are closer now. Gilyard still thinks he can get off on a lesser charge, I speculate that he still does not see the full picture of what he has done. However, the State, Judge Weatherby and the Lord will decide on the gravity of his sins against his victims and the earthly price he will pay.
On a better note, please read the scriptures below, as they are reminders of how things should be amongst us and also of the wonders of the Savior that we serve.

Bless you all, Happy Easter!!!
"If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from His love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose.

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:
who, being in very nature of God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.

And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled Himself and became obedient to death - even death on a cross!

Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in Heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Phillipians 2:1-11 NIV

"The fear of the Lord teaches a man wisdom, and humility comes before honor."
Proverbs 15:33 NIV
