Received His mercy and be thankful for it

While yet we still live in the lowly state of this earthly temple of clay there is no reason for any of us to be lifted up with pride.

The lowliest of the angels of God are far greater than the greatest among the sons of men; yet all the angels of Heaven, both small and great, fall flat on their faces upon the ground when God, the Father, passes by.

There are many men who are lifted up with pride for things they have accomplished, the very things for which they should have been ashamed.

Brethren, let us not count ourselves worthy of having received the mercy of God.

Instead let us count ourselves as utterly unworthy to have received His mercy and be thankful for it.
