This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Luke 14:11 (ESV)
Today I want you to know what humility looks like in action.
When we look at Jesus’ life, we see he was both bold as a lion and also meek as a lamb. So, when he chose to wash his disciples’ feet, Peter was confused. He said, “Lord you will never wash my feet!” Yet Jesus told him, “If I don’t wash you, you won’t belong to me.” Peter quickly responded, “Well then, Lord, wash my hands and my head as well!”
What’s interesting is that shortly after Jesus washed Peter’s feet, Peter would deny him. Jesus, of course, already knew this, yet he still chose to show him the love, compassion, and gentleness of a lamb. He still showed him humility. Ultimately, Jesus knew the man of God that Peter would become.
Who has God assigned to you, even if only for a season? Could you express a little more love, compassion, and humility toward them? This is where my work lies too. Sometimes I get so caught up in work that I forget about someone God has put on my path. Today, that is on my list.
Let us both be comforted and instructed by these words: “For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” Luke 14:11 (ESV)
