Meditation for the Week
Humility: Charles Spurgeon said, “Humility is to make a right estimate of one’s self. It is not humility for a man to think less of himself than he ought, though it might rather puzzle him to do that.” There is humility in recognizing the gifts and talents God has innately placed in you and developed in you. Humility is to use the gifts and talents God has given you in service to others and for the glory of God. The psalmist wrote, “Great is our Lord, and abundant in power; his understanding is beyond measure. The LORD lifts up the humble; he casts the wicked to the ground” (Psalm 147:5-6). Jesus said in Matthew 20:28, “…the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Go exercise the gifts and talents God gave you for the benefit of others and to bring glory to God in heaven. The Lord will lift you up.
