Humility, Mid-Week Devotional by Chris Chase

May 22, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

"Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, but humility goes before honor." (Proverbs 18:12)  Humility is not the way you dress.  It has nothing to do with how much money you make or where you live.  It's not about the car you drive.  Humility is an attitude.  It's an attitude of the heart and an attitude of the mind.  It is knowing your proper place. . . never talking down or looking down because someone is of a lower financial level than you.  Humility is knowing your role and fulfulling it for the glory of God.  Humility is an attitude similar to the attitude of Christ, who emptied Himself of the voluntary and independent use of His divine attributes . . . there is no quality more god-like than humility.  The place of highest exaltation, as seen in Christ, is a place of self-emptying humility.  It's not a phony style of fake piety.  It's true humility of the mind.  It's putting the other person first . . . It's being like Christ!
