Humility is a character trait that our natural selves resist. In this “me-first” world, humility is seen as a weakness, but in the Kingdom of Heaven, it represents the mighty strength of God’s love.
Jesus, the One who created all things and is above all things, chose to suspend His rights and lay down the outward attributes of His deity in order to become an earth-bound servant. Jesus paid the ultimate sacrifice on the cross to gain that which He loves; you and me.
Christian, we understand that true humility has a purpose for greater good, but I think we can all testify that it is impossible to grasp on our own. Today, let’s look to our Lord as more than our example; let’s seek His face with a renewed desire to love Him, and by His love to empty ourselves a bit so that He has more room to work in our lives for the benefit of others.
