Matthew 23:1-12

LIVING HUMBLY

“…those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted” Matthew 23:12, NIV.

A man was compelled to go to the church very early one morning. On arrival, he met a beautiful lady in old clothes cleaning the church. He felt sorry for her and thought that God had led him to the church to help change her level. So, he insisted on giving her some money and offered to give her a ride when she was done with her assignment. The lady politely refused both offers but the man pressed on. He walked her out of the church only to discover the lady owned a BMW X6 2017 which made his car look like a wheelbarrow. The man then discovered that God had actually led him to the church to learn humility. If a woman of such status could offer to clean God’s house, he has no reason to be proud.
In today’s passage, Jesus warned against hypocrisy, eye-service, and self-conceit. Contrary to the human tendencies toward pride, Jesus taught His disciples the beauty of servant-leadership and humility that leads to divine exaltation. Do you often feel you are not noticed or duly celebrated? Do you flaunt whatever you think you are endowed with to gain attention? Then, you must cry to God for help and rise above the desires of the flesh. Live humbly and watch God exalt you in due course.

Birthday Blessing: “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you” Psalms 32:8.

RBT Passage: Proverbs 15 – 17

“Sense shines with a double luster when it is set in humility. An able yet humble man is a jewel worth a kingdom”. – William Penn
