Good Morning March 30

Scripture continually exalts humility above pride. The Apostle James wrote, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” (4:6) Even Jesus said of himself, “I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” (Matthew 11:29) It is always a question of whether we are turned inward toward ourselves, or outward toward God and others. One who is humble is teachable, ready to gain wisdom, and seek understanding. The proud block themselves from these things. The humble are not weak. Jesus would never be called weak, even though He described Himself as humble. True strength is to understand that one does not have all the answers, and is willing to seek out the One who does. “This is the one I esteem:(says the Lord) he who is humble and contrite in spirit, and trembles at My word. “(Isaiah 66:2)
