Be Humble

humble

DAILY VERSE

Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you.

1 Peter 5:5–6

DEVOTION

Pride is a man-killer! Being humble requires us to submit to our bosses, teachers, elders, spouses… Rebellion raises it’s ugly head when we want control, we want to be in charge, and we refuse to hand off the control and humble ourselves. When we refuse to do this it’s not God being in control, it’s our humanness. Remember; the least will be exalted in heaven, humble yourself before the Lord by submitting to those in authority.
