Are You Humble?

What does the Bible mean by “Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.”? We look at the answer.
1 Peter 5:6

The line between humility and humiliation sometimes gets blurred. When we humble ourselves, we acknowledge our lack of self-sufficiency, pride, and power. We make it clear that we can’t accomplish anything by ourselves and that we won’t take undeserved credit for our contributions to what does get accomplished.

Humiliation, on the other hand, poisons humility with a sense of shame and contempt. Whether we humiliate ourselves or someone else, the sense of inadequacy and unworthiness comes across much the same.

When we’re truly humble, there’s no sense of putting ourselves—or anyone else—down. In fact, just the opposite: we acknowledge our true worth in Christ alone and make it clear that we depend on God’s goodness and power to sustain us. The more we remember our source, the more he empowers us to accomplish mighty deeds for his kingdom.

Pray: “Lord, keep me humble in all that I do. Remind me that I can only achieve what you ask me to do with your help.”
