Are You Self-Sufficient November 3

I read an article recently entitled, 50 ways to become more self-sufficient. There were literally 50 tips presented to make a person more self-sufficient. Some of the tips were very doable and some not so doable. Being self-sufficient can be a very good thing, but not always. Some people think being self-sufficient, in relation to God, is a good thing. It is the idea of striving to be a good person, or at least better than other people, and the thought is by striving to be good that will make them right with God. The bible tells us for someone who is in relationship with God, being self-sufficient was not the way they got there. Ephesians 2:8-9 reads, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.”
