What's your favorite pie? Is it the infamous sweet potato pie? Is it the delicious apple pie? Perhaps you like pecan pie? No, I got it you like pumpkin pie? This holiday season there will be millions of people partaking in one of the aforementioned pies and as good as they are they are not the pie the Lord desires for His people to eat. That is not to say that the Lord is against you eating pies in moderation wink wink but it is to say that there is a desirable pie that you can eat as much as you want. Humble pie!
Humble pie gets a bad rep because it usually happens as a result of an individual's boasting or being haughty and then they get a slice of humble pie to bring them back to reality. However, this doesn't have to be the case the Bible says humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time (NIV).
So this holiday season remember the pie that smells good to the LORD. Will you have a slice?
