Living with Humility

Recently, I was speaking with my boss.   She said, “you came with little experience and I did not know what to expect, but you’ve blown me away with the way you have built the program up and all you do.”

I have to admit that I was left speechless.   More than anything, I struggled to accept the compliment.

I was thankful that my hard work was acknowledged, but I knew that I could not take the power and credit.  I do what I do, only through the power and strength, Christ bestows on me each day.  {As I stated last week, I daily ask for God’s help.}

Do you put others first?

We are told in scripture that we are to be humble, but this does not mean that we are to be run over or should not acknowledge and recognize our strengths.

Humility is defined as a modest or low view of one’s own importance.  However, Biblical humility is grounded in the character of God.

There are times when I struggle with wanting recognition for something.  I have to remind myself that it is not about me, but about God.

Philippians 2:3 says, “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.”

Do you live in humility or conceit?
