Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.
Humble yourselves. This may sound difficult in the "get ahead at all cost," self-promoting society we live in today. Humility is a forgotten virtue. It is 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 honor him.
How do you humble yourself before the Lord?
Heavenly Father. 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. Amen.
