SUNDAY SERMON ON THE BLOG – HUMILITY.
Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. - James 4:10.
Humble yourselves. That sounds obscene. At least to the “get ahead at all cost” and “don't look back because the competition is gaining on you” culture of self-promotion, it sounds obscene.
Humility is a forgotten virtue. Often confused with weakness or timidity, humility is about knowing our proper place in the world without flaunting it.
Only God can exalt in a permanent way, so the key is to know our place before him, and let him put us in the place He chooses, to honour him.
Loving Heavenly Father, thank you that I can come into your presence. When I think of all that you have done, the incredible universe you have made and hold together by your word, I am amazed you invite me into your presence. I am amazed that you even care about my choice of words. Thank you for knowing me and having a plan for my life. Help me to live each day with humility and grace before others as I seek to glorify you in all things. In the mighty name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
