Humbleness: The True Mark of Wisdom


Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:6-7 

Generally, when we are offended or hurt, our immediate response is to overindulge in it and prioritize our discomfort. We lose ourselves in building bitterness around that hurt and offense. Pride takes its roots to make us believe, we are better and we are to be revered. 

Whereas, true wisdom comes from GOD and trains us to become humble. Practicing humility builds a Christ-like character in us. Keeps pride at bay. Humbleness teaches us to cast all our cares, hurts, offenses, pride, and jealousy into HIS hands, as HE makes us imitators of HIM. 

GOD is for us, and our concerns matter to HIM. Know for a fact that our life is sustained by HIM and HIS grace and presence will make all the difference that we are longing for. May our hope rest in HIM and HIM alone. Amen.
