It is all about you!....your humility!


YOU! Your are to be … Humble…Have you ever met a truly humble person?  Some famously humble people are people like Mother Teresa, Abraham Lincoln, Elvis Presley, The Manning Family gives the impression of Humbleness…but what about the people in your own life? Do you know anyone the sacrificially gives without strings and loves without anything in return and lives with a kind spirit and touch.
Being humble is like being one single Daffodil among all the green. There is a need to be full of life, yet there is a simple gift of being modestly decorated. Humble is not proud or arrogant. Humble is modest although successful. It is accepting a position of insignificance, inferiority, subservience and living low in rank, importance, and status. A humble person is a courteously & respectful in life.
The humble ones are the ones that do things for Christ that no one notices and yet they are still faithful to God throughout everything. John Madden said, “Self-praise is for losers. Be a winner. Stand for something. Always have class, and be humble.”
A humble follower of Jesus seeks to stand for something and seeks to build relationships by being humble. It just happens to be Valentine’s week and this is a time when our culture has an obsession with “Eros” love. The best advice for a great relationship is to be humble…to demonstrate humility and honor the other person.
In Philippians 2, God is teaching Christians to walk humbly in unity, in valuing others, and serving the people around you.
Humbly loving you....Don
