How do you gauge your humility level without becoming prideful? How do you recognize the growth of humility in your life? Scripture tells us that humility can be recognized by a growing honor and respect for God. Changes in your relationship with Him will initiate changes in your habits and in relationships with others. Is this true in your life?
Humility is the fear of the LORD; its wages are riches and honor and life.—Proverbs 22:4
Prayer: Lord, show me what You see in my heart. What evidence is there that You are increasingly the center of my life? Where do I consciously need to seek to exalt You and not myself? Am I answering Your call to spend time with You in Scripture and prayer? Are my core relationships characterized by honesty, forgiveness, and intimacy? Don’t let me take these questions lightly, Lord. I know that humility is at the core of my ability to live, love, and lead like Jesus. I pray in His name, Amen.
