True Humility

Humility is many times misunderstood. To most it means to put themselves down, and to be the lowest of the low, or to be selfless. Isn't that amazing?

The key is to understand how the Bible defines humility. God states through the Bible that Moses was the most humble man. I'd say that Moses was very bold, and powerful. Yet the Bible states he was humble. So Moses would be an example of humility.

The BEST definition I've ever heard for true humility is, "total dependence on God." That's humility. It's not being puffed up in fleshly pride. It has nothing to do with with your ability, but everything to do with God's ability and willingness to use His ability on our behalf. It's all about being dependent on Him.

Pastor Jackie (Church on the Rock, Lubbock, TX) states that humility is not being selfless, but thinking of oneself less.

Humility is being totally dependent on God, and thinking of others. How can you, with your dependence on God, help others? How can you be a blessing to others? He blesses you for he purpose of you being a blessing to others.

This week, pray for understanding of how God desires to bless you, and how you can then, with total dependence on Him, be a blessing to others. Seek first His kingdom, and His righteousness!

May God bless you abundantly, and make you a blessing to others!

Bishop Dennis
