ACHIEVE GREATNESS DEVOTIONAL- BIMBO DAVIDS: Humility matters
“For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” – Luke 14:11 NIV
“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel” – Maya Angelou
“Think of yourselves the way Christ Jesus thought of himself. He had equal status with God but didn’t think so much of himself that he had to cling to the advantages of that status no matter what. Not at all. When the time came, he set aside the privileges of deity and took on the status of a slave, became human! Having become human, he stayed human. It was an incredibly humbling process. He didn’t claim special privileges. Instead, he lived a selfless, obedient life and then died a selfless, obedient death—and the worst kind of death at that—a crucifixion.” – Philippians 2:5-8 MSG
Promotion and exaltation always comes after humility.
“Because of that obedience, God lifted him high and honored him far beyond anyone or anything, ever, so that all created beings in heaven and on earth—even those long ago dead and buried—will bow in worship before this Jesus Christ, and call out in praise that he is the Master of all, to the glorious honor of God the Father.” – Philippians 2:9-11 MSG
We all desire promotion, lifting and greatness but our Lord Jesus shows us the way. It is by stripping ourselves from every taint of pride, ego, arrogance and self-centredness.
Humility is not weakness. It is not thinking less of yourself but thinking of yourself less. Humility thinks of how to serve others, how to be a blessing to others. When you’re always thinking of how others should serve you and do things for you, you’re on the path to pride.
You may be a boss, and have several staff under you. But instead of always asking them to do things for you, think of how you can also serve them. Ask about their families, if you can, give them a raise.
Yes, I know people can take it for granted. But don’t forget, your reward will not come from man but from God, the ultimate boss.
Always be grateful for whatever privilege you enjoy now. Life itself is a privilege. That understanding will keep us humble and grateful.
Further reading; Daniel 4: 29-37
Father, I repent of every act of pride and arrogance. Help me to live in a manner that pleases you today. I adopt the same mind and attitude that Jesus expressed. I receive grace to serve others selflessly.. In Jesus name.
