So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor.1 Peter 5:6
We live in a prideful world. A world where people will say and do anything to get ahead. A world where people put their own desires and advances above anyone else. To be humble means you are weak.
The Bible tells us the opposite. If you humble yourself, God will lift you up. The key is that HE is the one who lifts you up, not anyone else, not yourself. The word humility means “: freedom from pride or arrogance : the quality or state of being humble,” in the Merriam Webster Dictionary. Would you rather seem strong here on earth or have the Lord lift you up? Spend some time today, asking God to help give you a spirit of humility.
A Prayer to Remember
May I have a humble spirit just like Jesus. May I serve others with the same spirit that Christ had when He was on Earth. Amen.
