The Lord Jesus was humble and He expects us to act in humility, esteeming others better than ourselves. When we feel we are better, we begin to feel and look superior. This ought not to be so for this is the practice of the heathen. In character and attitude, we are heathen when we intimidate others.
Always see it as a privilege when you feel you are better. When you understand that life is a privilege, it will make you humble and never look superior. Never accept intimidation and inferiority complex from anybody. Ignorance is a product of a proud person. The mother of pride is ignorance and Jesus saw this. This was why He asked the Father to forgive for the world did not know what they were doing.
Live your life with all humility and esteem others better than yourself. Look out for someone’s interest for selfishness is as a result of ignorance. The highest deceit in the world is the deceit of pride. Always remember that it was Grace that brought you thus far, and grace will lead you home. Be humble enough to see the grace of God in your life.
Whatever you are in life, never glory because you received it. The moment you realize that you receive it, it makes you humble. God never uses someone who feels is somebody. 2 Corinthians 12:9 tells us that when we are handicap, He takes over. Everything you are and you have is not you but the Lords’.
The mind of Christ is humility. James 4:6 and 10 says that God gives grace to the humble and lifts him up. 2 Corinthians 12:9 tells us that for pride not to enter and for Paul not to think above measure, a messenger of Satan was sent to buffet him. Titus 2:11 tells us that the grace of God has appeared to all men and so, we have no excuse to give why we cannot.
God answers and promotes the humble in mind according to 1 Peter 5:5. We are called by the Lord to live a life of humility. We are never better than the heathen……it is just that we are privileged!
