Jesus demonstrated the greatest humility of all in Philippians 2:5-7. Though eternally with the Father, He chose to bend beneath a cross in love so that through His death He might lift any who receive Him into the joy of His presence. We imitate Jesus’s humility when we seek to serve our Heavenly Father by serving others. Jesus’s kindness helps us catch a breath-taking glimpse of the beauty of setting ourselves aside to attend to others needs.
Aiming for humility isn’t easy in our world but as we rest securely in our Saviour’s love, He will give us everything we need to follow Him. As we give, we can express our gratitude for all God has given us. We can motivate others to praise the Lord and give from all God has given them. Open handed giving a lavish expression of love and gratitude can demonstrate our confidence in God’s provision for all His people.
- Pray for God to humble our hearts and minds to learn from Him for His yoke is easy and His burden is light.
- Pray that the Lord will be exalted and His glory will be revealed through the church and His kingdom and righteousness shall reign.
