Spiritual Food for Thought for the Weekend
“Wisdom and humility”
Proverbs 22:4 (NIV)
“Humility is the fear of the Lord; its wages are riches and honor and life.”
Meditate on this thought: Humility is the fear of the Lord, and fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.
Wisdom and humility are strongly linked together. If you search the Scriptures, you will realize that humility before God is one of the wisest postures. Humility before others also pleases God. Success can make us lose our humble posture.
Have you ever met someone who is proud about nothing? Don’t be that kind of person. There are still too many things for us to learn. Be humble, and be teachable.
Prayer: Lord, make me humble. Jesus, soften my heart to be teachable. Amen.
