“A Humble Spirit”
-Jill W Tomey
Humility was modeled by Jesus when he lived among us. He always gave glory to the Father for the things he accomplished on the earth. He always modeled a servant leader attitude for us. He could have been born in any place and time that he wanted to. He chose to come to us in a stable, in a lowly manger and not in a royal palace. That’s Humility.
When we are prideful, we fill our lives with our wants. When we are humble, we fill our lives with what God wants. Wanting to be God-like was the downfall of Adam and Eve. Wanting to be exalted above God was the downfall of Satan. Not giving God credit for the achievements in our life will be our downfall, too.
Being humble also requires us to recognize what others have done for us and to express our thanks for that support. A humble spirit will also be willing to help others to achieve as well. Recognizing our interdependence on others helps us to stay humble.
This month, practice humility by recognizing and acknowledging our total dependence upon God and seek His will for every decision.
