Word of the Day... October 17, 2012

A man's pride will bring him low,
but a humble spirit will obtain honor.
Proverbs 29:23

Humility isn't a show we put on; in fact, if we think we're humble, we're probably not.

We live in the day of “ME” how can I assert “MYSELF” How can I promote “Me”.  It has become a world of what can I get for myself and not what can I do for others. This world is one that magnifies the flesh.
A truly humble person will look at how to serve others.  I love the part of the Bible where Jesus washes the feet of His disciples.  Peter was shocked by what Jesus was doing and told him “no you can’t wash my feet” and Jesus told him "If I do not wash you, you can have no part of Me." A servant is no greater than his Master.  I love the example Jesus gives us through this Word.  That we are to be servants and we have the greatest example of what it is to be humble through the example that Jesus gives us.

To build up rather than to tear down, to serve rather than being served, to be open to learn from others rather than clamoring for the teaching stand.

How very blessed are people who learn this early in their lives…  I hope you all have a wonderful day!!!  God bless you!!!
