Exalted Humility

Luke 18:14 – “For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” (NIV 1978)

My Musings – Excessive pride usually leads to some kind of humility (or rather humiliation). Genuine humility, on the other hand, frequently leads to recognition and reward.

My Advice – Do not blow your own horn too loudly. Good work and accomplishment will usually be recognized and rewarded for what it is. Even if it is not, God knows and you will be rewarded later.

Responsive Humility

Responsive Humility

2 Kings 22:19Because your heart was responsive and you humbled yourself before the Lord…I have heard you, declares the Lord. (NIV 1978)

My Musing – It is much better for us to humble ourselves before God, than for God to have to humble us.

My Advice – Be a man of humility, who is responsive to God’s commands.
