Humility

In this post we have a very short lesson. Though short, this is a very important aspect many need to focus on more, including myself.

Philippians 2: 3-11

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father”

Jesus Christ, Son of God, “did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant.” He was obedient all the way to the cross. THAT is humility. We are too prideful to tell those sinners around us because of what they may think of us. Make it your daily prayer, that God grants you humility.
