So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Colossians.3:12

Humility is characterized by an attitude that does not seek to exalt or assert oneself.
Jesus’ life was the definition of “humble.” To become a man, He gave up the glory, majesty, and power that were His in heaven. Jesus voluntarily emptied Himself—just as a glass of water is poured out—and for the purpose of serving us, surrendered all that He shared with His Father.
Not only that, but as a man, Jesus took on the role of a lowly servant. He lovingly submitted Himself to His Father’s plan and relinquished even earthly rights to rescue us from sin. He endured criticism, ridicule, unbelief, and, finally, crucifixion in order to help us. His humility knew no limit. He humbled Himself before the Father to become the Lamb of God, and He did so in full view of mankind, even when He was labelled a criminal and unjustly convicted. His life demonstrates the importance of being humble and gives us a clear pattern to follow.
The disciples missed the point until later on, since they didn’t expect a Messiah in the form of a servant. The leaders felt threatened because Jesus’ call to follow His lifestyle would not give them the importance they desired. The crowds were bewildered because they didn’t understand the danger of pride. But the Father saw Jesus’ meekness and was pleased.
What attitude does God see when He looks at you? Until you humble yourself before the Lord you cannot be exalted. Humility attracts God to your life!
Prayer:
Liberation thought: Humility goes before honour
