“For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted,”
Humility is an elusive virtue. The moment one is satisfied that he has it, he has just lost it. It is so unselfconscious that the one who is most humble is the least aware that he is humble. Humility comes through spiritual vision. When one sees himself as he is, and sees God as He is, the heart is humbled. Humility does not come by deeds of merit, good intentions, or great sacrifices. It is the natural result of a right relationship with God. Today's study aims to generate a spirit of humility in you. Approach the lesson with the prayer, “Speak, Lord, for thy servant heareth.” Be ready to respond to what God speaks to you through His Word.
