Humility is a concept that is often considered distasteful in our society today. I think we decide as long as we don’t have extreme arrogance, we aren’t so bad. However, as a child of God, my example of Jesus Christ shows a much deeper kind of humility. Although He is God, He chose to be born as a baby. Then He grew up to be a servant – willing to die. This isn’t the glorious story we tend to like. Humility is grueling work. I believe this hard work is worth it. Jesus is worthy of my allegiance. Humility is following His example.
This Christmas, I hope you will look at the example of Jesus Christ. His way is the only way to find peace and joy during tough times and good ones.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for the truth of Jesus coming to be born as a baby. Thank You for His example of humility. Please help me to learn humility and live that example to all who see my life. May they see You in my life.
I pray this in Jesus’ name.
God is so good.
