Humility needs to be the bedrock of our spiritual lives. Choose humility rather than have it chosen for us.
A lack of humility can present itself in many ways:
- We can look down on others.
- We can work beyond our capacity for an excessive period of time.
- We don’t accept the gifts and strengths God has given us.
- We don’t have confidence in God’s ability to work through us.
A lack of humility makes us focus on ourselves. We must know who we are in God’s eyes to be truly humble. It is an identity we have received.
As we go about our lives, go at the pace of grace.
“Jesus, never let us forget that we are dependent on you and need to move at the pace of your grace.”
