Philippians 2:5-11

Read this passage!

Humility. Why is this a hard thing for us? Christ showed us true humility by becoming a servant and washing feet. Not once, with all His knowledge and power, did Christ make anyone feel less than He.

In this world of instant gratification, focus on success at the expense of others, and overall apparent lack of concern for others, it is hard to find someone who demonstrates pure humility.

As I sit here typing this, I think about those I have worked with in the past and some of the things that were done by some to just get ahead and be considered “successful.” When I scroll through Facebook and look at the posts that make fun of others (which I admit I thought were funny), I find myself feeling sad. How would I feel if it were me they were making fun of? How am I living in humility when I repost these videos or jokes?

I encourage you to take some time and reflect on your thoughts and actions. Are they in line with the humility that Christ wants us to live? If not, then make the decision to begin changing. Get out of your comfort zone and humble yourself to others instead of making sure you feel superior to them.
