CHARACTER VALUE OF THE MONTH: During the month of May we are focusing on the character of God – HUMILITY. The Bible says, “God is against the proud, but gives grace to the humble. So be humble under God’s powerful hand and He will lift you up when the time is right.” 1 Peter 5:5-6

Do you ever make mistakes? Do you ever mess up? God wants us to “Let HIS Light Shine!” But this God who wants us to let His light shine is also ready to forgive us when we do fall and sin. May that truth give us hope as we seek to live in the light!
“This is the message we heard from Jesus and now declare to you: God is light, and there is no darkness in him at all. So we are lying if we say we have fellowship with God but go on living in spiritual darkness; we are not practicing the truth. But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin. If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. If we claim we have not sinned, we are calling God a liar and showing that his word has no place in our hearts.” (1 John 1:5–10, NLT)
