“Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. [Or willing to do menial work] Do not be conceited.” Romans 12:16 (NIV)
Everything you are, all that you have and whatever you will be in life, God knows all these. There is nothing that escapes the eyes of God. He sees all and He knows all. In spite of His supremacy and sovereignty, God is humble. He does not lift Himself up anyhow. He has the ability to do so yet He is full of humility, and for this, He brought himself low, came from heaven, born of a woman, tell us about His beloved kingdom, died a shameful death for us and resurrected so that we may live on.
God is exceedingly marvellous! I love God and I am blessed to be part of His kingdom.
If God is humble, then why are you so proud of yourself? Why not live out your life like Christ? When you get to the point in your life where you will say that you are too big to mix up with some people or other people, then you are a proud person.
And God does not love someone with pride. He created us all to be equal and for this reason, it does not matter if you are richer than some people, or if you are in higher position in your life, in your job, in your family, in your society or wherever than them.
Your humility, I mean your sincere humble life will speak for you. You don’t have to show off to people before they will know how great you are. Beside, none is greater than God.
Do not look down on people, because if you do, then you are looking for trouble. When you humble yourself, and you treat people with love, true joy and companion, then God will continue to life you up.
Do not forget that God is the one who created you and these people, and that you are in higher status than them is just a privilege and a chance. So do not misuse your chances; otherwise, you do this at your own peril.
I have seen many wealthy people who don’t show they are. In fact, you can hardly know they are. They are very simple, respectful, humble and friendly to be with.
Make it your duty to live a humble life. It is not difficult to be simple in life. If you are struggling with this, then pray to God to help you. He alone is able to do all things according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
