Living in Humility

Humility is the fear of the Lord; its wages are riches and honor and life. – Proverbs 22:4

Humility is not sought out in our culture. We elevate the assertive person, the concise thinker and even the boastful. However, this proverb along with the first nine chapters points out that it is humility that places us in true submission to God. Our Christian faith should urge us towards reverence and submission to a Holy God. Our lives should be under lordship to Jesus. When you exhibit a humble attitude and a servant’s heart, people will desire to work for you, work with you or invite you to work for them. Humility is like a magnet; it draws opportunities to you. Having a great reputation grounded in humility and wisdom will sustain you through life.
