Be Humble For Real

Humility in the dictionary means a modest or low view of one’s own importance; humbleness. A low self regard or sense of unworthiness. A form of temperance that is neither having pride, nor indulging in self-depreciation.

Humility does not mean to walk around with your head down. It means to be confident in who you are but not arrogant. Being humble teaches you how to be abased and how to abound. It teaches you to not look down on others because it could easily be you in someone else’s shoes.

A humble person is full of compassion and love for others. You cannot serve who you do not love. They understand that they are not exempt from trials and tribulations.

The 2 words “be humble” are thrown around a lot in these days and times. Some people use it as a means of attack because of what the Lord is doing in someone else life.

When a person shares their testimony, to some, you are bragging or being arrogant. They forget the Word of God in Revelations 12:11.

Humility is not a sign of weakness or being a coward. It is a sign of strength and realizing that you were hand picked by God to fulfill His purpose. He could have picked anybody else, but He called your name

So as a way of encouragement, never allow someone else opinion of you stop you from being who you were chosen to be even in the midst of being misunderstood.

True humility is often times misunderstood. I’m spite of all walk in love, walk in assurance, walk in integrity, walk in humility.
