Humility


Here is one subject most people don’t want to discuss. Being humble isn’t in our DNA. That’s an understatement. There are more I’s running around than you can shake a stick at. I was one of them. I’m not talking about self-esteem. I am talking about Ego. When you look at children, you will see this trait in them. It is part of who we are. We are born with it. We want to be #1 ahead of everybody else. And most of the time at the cost of everybody else. This is a very destructive form of human nature. That is why our parents tried to teach us to control this urge in our lives. But some people live by it and destroy the world around them. This is a trait fueled by the fires of hell. It is the exact opposite of what God wants us to do. God says it plainly that pride goes before a fall. We are social beings that are meant to work with and help other people. And the only way we can do this is by humbling ourselves. That is a mouth full. You have heard the expression of eating crow. But what God does is the show you who you are and what you can do in this world. He doesn’t knock us to our knees unless it is the last resort in our lives. I have been humbled before God and it isn’t fun. It is very much like getting your teeth kicked in. Today I chose to be humble before God. This is what God wants and it is how to stand before God. You know what has surprised me the most is that humility has drawn people to me. They see that I am accessible and they walk up to me. Then they ask me questions about God. Humble is who God really is. Walk up to Him and ask Him a question about your life.
