Humility--The Lord's Meaning
If my people who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14
Humility is not our culture's biggest asset or most desired character quality. But humility is what is demanded - not so much because it's commanded (though that would be enough), because we've earned it. Every year brings another wave of major failures in morality, character, and spirituality.
Rather than progressing culturally, we find ourselves slipping. Humility is earned! So let's be humble and call upon the Lord!
Humility is perpetual quietness of heart.
It is to have no trouble.
It is never to be fretted or vexed, or irritable,
to wonder at nothing that is done to me,
to feel nothing that is done against me.
It is to be at rest when nobody praises me,
and when I am blamed or despised,
it is to have a blessed home in myself
where I can go in and shut the door
and kneel to my Father in secret and be at peace,
as in a deep sea of calmness.
when all around and about is seeming trouble.
Thought to Ponder........
I didn't learn humility with my head,
I learned humility with my heart.
