Truth for Today
“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus.” Philippians 2:3-5
Thought for Today
Humility is the opposite of pride, arrogance, and egotism. Humility, like kindness and compassion, is not something we can acquire or learn individually, apart from those around us. Living humbly involves our attitudes toward the people we live with, work with, and encounter in our daily life routines. Humility is willing to put others first. Jesus was our model of the greatest humility as He, “being found in human form, He humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.”
Prayer for Today
Lord, forgive me for being selfish and prideful. Father, help me to be clothed in divine humility. Jesus, I want to see others through Your eyes. Holy Spirit, fill me with grace to learn humility so You get all the glory. Amen.
