Wednesday Matters- April 6, 2022
Remember that song, “Oh Lord, it’s hard to be humble when you’re perfect in everyday way?” We laugh because, “as if.” But sometimes we’re so busy pointing out the faults of others that we don’t take time to look at our own. Hey this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters. But, true humility is not a denial of your positive attributes. It isn’t a humble person who says, “I’m not good at anything.” This is an expression of pride which says, “Look at poor me. I must have special consideration because I’m so weak. Please pity me...treat me well.” On the contrary, the truly humble person recognizes their strengths and weaknesses and so rather than a concentration on yourself, humility leads you to look around you for opportunities to encourage and help others.
When you understand that humility is knowing both your strengths and weaknesses, it helps you to be confident in the gifts God’s given you rather than feeling bad about what you don’t have. Happy and free people are humble people…everyday.
