True Humility

Philippians 2:6-10 NKJV “who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,”

Someone once said, “Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s just thinking of yourself less.”

Both pride and humility carry divine promises, pride will bring us down and humility will lift you higher (Proverbs 29:33)!

Our self-worth is not rooted in our accomplishments or ability, our identity is in Christ and understanding this causes us to be humble, realising without Christ we are nothing and can do nothing, but also having confidence that each day, with Him we can do whatever we need to (Philippians 4:13)

Have a blessed week!
