Humility

With the tremendous gifts and talents God has given you, you will accomplish great things and experience success in different areas of life. We must remember to remain humble and not become proud or arrogant.


Even though we have gifts and talents, we are not perfect. We have weaknesses and flaws. We have missed and continue to miss the mark in many ways. Remembering this helps us to not think of ourselves too highly, but to be thankful that God loves us anyway. Our sense of identity and joy does not come from our strengths or our weaknesses, but rather in God’s love for us.


“Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take interest in others, too.”
~Philippians 2:3-4 (NLT)


To truly live with humility means to take the focus off ourselves, so that we can focus on others. Make sure you remember this important point about humility -- it is not thinking less of yourself. It is thinking of yourself less.




In what ways did you take an interest in others today?
