‘Grace To The Humble’
Having humility doesn’t mean we agree with everyone. Neither does it mean that we have our beliefs and allow others to have theirs. It doesn’t mean that all thoughts/opinions are equal, but that as human beings we are of equal worth before God and that we can live together in mutual respect. If we acknowledge that we are all equally dependent on God’s grace, what a powerful statement this is - “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble” (1 Peter 5:5). Sometimes we have heard a verse so often that it doesn’t penetrate us, but contemplate 1 Peter 5:5. Does this verse say that only those who do not think of themselves more highly than anyone else can receive God’s grace? (Vestal) Perhaps we should temper ourselves and our opinion of ourselves to truly see God’s character and nature.
Lord, for I am nothing without you. I long to serve you, Lord, and follow in your way.
When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
