Humility, Mid-Week Devotional with Chris Chase
"Clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, for God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble." (1 Peter 5:5)
Humility is a state of mind -- an attitude -- a preset mentality. If we have this humble mindset ahead of time, it helps us to remember that it's not all about me. I don't always have to be first. I need to think of those around me & help someone else win for a change. Instead of thinking about receiving, I start looking for ways to give. Instead of holding grudges against those that affend me, I am quick to forgive. And instead of keeping a record of all the things I've done to help others, I delight in forgetting the deeds & set out to work incognito -- unnoticed. My hunger for recognition will diminish significantly!
