Humility is the correct posture to have before God and man.
We should be humble before God because He is the Creator and we are the created. This should be obvious. Yet we often forget and neglect this.
We should also be humble before Him because He has humbled Himself before us. He became a human being and walked among us. There was nothing that required Him to do this for us.
Because of His example, we should humble ourselves before other human beings. We should be respectful of them, giving their interests preference over our own. This is what He did.
There is a payoff or benefit for all this humility. It is first that we can be peaceful and anxiety-free in our daily lives, no longer striving from either greed or fear. And second, it is that God Himself will exalt us at the appropriate time. Yes, we can count on Him to supply whatever we need and to lift us to whatever state we require.
Therefore, we have more than enough reasons to shed our pride and walk only in humility. Let us repent…and be like Jesus. This is the ultimate of a rewarding life.
The purpose of this blog is to provide information about Jesus to those who want to hear about Him without having to join something.
