Humility Is Good

There are no many characteristics that are more appreciated by the Lord than humility.  Humility screams out to me proper perspective. If I understand my role in life, and the Lord’s role, then I can have proper perspective.  He is Lord of All and I simply follow Him. If I can keep that perspective, the Lord is respected and honored.  Check out Isaiah’s perspective….

 This is what the Lord says:
“Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path”
 “Heaven is my throne,

    and the earth is my footstool.

So do you think you can build a house for me?

    Do I need a place to rest?
My hand made all things.

    All things are here because I made them,”
says the Lord.
“These are the people I am pleased with:

    those who are not proud or stubborn

    and who fear my word. (Isaiah 66:1-2 NCV)

 I don’t want to be guilty of pretending to be humble. I want to keep proper perspective so that I will be humble. I don’t want to be proud of humility – that is missing the point. The main thing is that the Lord is Lord and I’m His follower. I am what I am because of Who He is and what He has done.

I have nothing to be prideful about when I understand that without Him I am nothing.

  (Now Moses was very humble. He was the least proud person on earth.) (Numbers 12:3 NCV)
 
Proud people will be ruined, but the humble will be honored. (Proverbs 18:12 NCV)

 Humility is a virtue worth cultivating in my heart!

Pressing On!
