Are we Humble?
1 Peter: Chapter 5 verse 6
therefore, under God’s mighty hand,
that He may lift you up in due time.
Do you realize that when we do humble ourselves, to God – He does lift us up out of what ever situation we are in. If only we would remember and pray more humbly and quickly when we are in a difficult situation we shall be delivered out of it much sooner.
Taken from the Book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R. Larman.
So are we HUMBLE – WHAT DOES IT MEAN? –
Well it could mean being modest, meek, respectful, also other things of course.
But to start off with it makes us think – are we being respectful of our elders, our friends and especially respectful of our own children and brothers and sisters?
It is not easy to be HUMBLE – we cannot always easily be MEEK, we want things our own way, likewise how about being MODEST?. Modest could mean to dress appropriately for whatever circumstances we are going to be in for the day. To be clean and tidy in our appearance. Also not to show off parts of our body in an unholy way. To show respect for other peoples feelings.
Let us be humble enough to listen while others talk to us, not to keep interrupting and putting words into their mouths. Wait to hear what they are really saying – not what we think they are saying……we may even learn something from them.
Today: let us practice being HUMBLE
Have a lovely day today – may The Lord Jesus help us all to be more humble in our daily living…..that of course means myself as well as other Christians.
* GOD BLESS YOU *
