thought snippet twenty- nine {humility}

In Luke 14, verse 11 it says:

” For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”  NLT

humble

True humility is not putting oneself down, degrading esteem or even pretending it in order to assess the effect it has on other’s.  In itself, it is false humility in pride.

Being humble is seeing our sinfulness in the light of God’s holiness.  This is a mighty feat;   but, the acceptance of missing the mark in our life and allowing the grace of God to work miracles in our lives in complete obedience worthy of HIS calling will make us humble knowing that all things are only possible through God.

As we recognize our gifts and strengths as bestowed opportunities to serve the Lord, however puny they are  in the essence of God’s majesty, the willingness and commitment to give HIM glory is humility manifested imbibed in the love of GOD.
