Who Is Your Model of Humility?
Jesus’s qualities are innumerable. His love, for example, is incomparable. It may seem beyond reach, and yet it’s so close and so “palpable” in our everyday lives …
Another one of His qualities, one that particularly stands out, is His humility. The One Who is King of the universe, God Himself, didn’t hesitate to lower Himself, make Himself of no reputation, make Himself as small as a baby, to love men and finally to save them.
Look at what Jesus said: “‘Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.’” (the Bible, Matthew 11:29, NIV)
Yes, Jesus’s heart, the very core of Him, is gentle, humble. It’s not a forced trait, a character quality that He had to work on. It’s not something He sought to develop through willpower and effort. No, it’s His heart of love speaking …
Jesus is our model of humility.
So that you may walk, talk, and love like Him, meditate on His character of humility, to imitate it, seeking to resemble Him a bit more each day.
