Remembering that we are just human 

New Testament: Acts 14.18

To read the Bible in a year, read Acts 14 on July 7, In the year of our Lord 2022

No man or woman is God, and that includes us. Sometimes we can become very successful at something or people can put honors upon us that make us think we are greater than what we truly are. 

For example, the people in one city saw Paul and Barnabas do miracles and the people concluded that they were gods and wanted to sacrifice to them. However, the two men stopped the people. Luke wrote: 

And with these sayings they could scarcely restrain the multitudes from sacrificing to them.

– Acts 14.18 

Not only did the citizens of that city need to know that Paul and Barnabas were not gods, but Paul and Barnabas also had to reject the idea that they were gods.
