We have seen the example of what humility looks like when we look at Jesus Christ and His actions and behaviors while He was here. He suffered as a human and yet was obedient to the will of God. It was not easy, even for Him…He prayed so hard that it could go differently and then in the next breath gave everything to God. “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” -Luke 22:42 The only way we have a chance to learn about God’s will, is to be willing to surrender our own will. One of my biggest obstacles in my faith journey is sustaining surrender…getting to the point of surrender is one thing, maintaining an attitude of surrender so God’s plan can unfold with His timing is yet another battle. One thing I know for sure, as it is true for all of us…God’s not finished with me yet! I pray that God will open the eyes of our hearts and wash over us with courage and patience. Amen.
“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.”
