Humility

Luke 14-11 “For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled,and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” I’ve been in churches where the worship leaders refused applause on the grounds of their humility, and they were quite proud of their open humility! So was the congregation. This is not true humility. To be a true follower of Jesus we must recognize that we really aren’t that awesome or smart or talented. God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise, and what is weak in the world to shame the strong. We must ask our Father in Heaven for wisdom and understanding. Confess to him that we really don’t know anything and need Jesus to teach us as he taught his disciples. We need to stop thinking that we know everything and humble ourselves before our Creator! The greatest among you should be the servant of the others. Jesus gave us rules to live by, and with pride running rampant today, we need to honor our Savior.

Hi, my name is Jeff and I grew up in Rockford,Michigan. I enjoy studying classical guitar, reading, and studying the scriptures. I've served in many churches and studied all their creeds and traditions. It's been a great journey and now I'm sharing what I've learned. I hope this helps you navigate the narrow road.
