Humility, Servanthood & Generosity DAY 26 : CHURCH LEADERSHIP

In the same way, you who are younger, submit yourselves to your elders. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, “God opposes the proud but shows favour to the humble.” 1 Peter 5:5

Truly humble people don’t take offense easily or fight back. And yet their humility is not cowardice, for true humility requires courage. It makes you willing to take a lower place than you deserve, to keep quiet about your merits, and to bear slights, insults, and false accusations for the sake of a higher purpose. True humility doesn’t make you think less of yourself; it just makes you think of yourself less.

Apostle Peter addresses the subject in these words: “God opposes the proud, but he favours the humble. So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honour” (1 Peter 5:5-6 NLT). In order for you to be an honourable leader, you must get rid of your pride, because it will disqualify you from enjoying God’s favour.

PRAYER POINTS

  • Pray for God’s forgiveness if ever we take credit in His ministry, all success come from God.
  • Pray that God will raise leaders who is humble and full of God’s favour.
