Humbly help someone that cannot help you.

Humbly help someone

Something that I have always struggled with is humility; lack thereof to be more exact. Looking back at myself 3 – 5 years ago, I really don’t care for who I was, I was cocky, arrogant and not a loving person. I can remember times when I was doing and saying things that made me look like I was some sort of superstar that was better than everyone around me. Praise God that He saw something greater in me. He got a hold of me and really changed who I was being. Not that I do not struggle with humility anymore, but it isn’t like it once was. Because of what God has done in my life, I live through His grace and walk in humility by remembering what Jesus did for me.

One thing that helps me learn to stay humble is volunteering; going out in the community and helping someone that will never do anything back for me. By doing this, knowing that I will never receive anything in return for helping any of these people, it helps me stay humble. 1 Peter 5:6 says to humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you.

I challenge you today, start serving others in some way. Stay humble! Live your life as someone who knows that what Jesus did for them could never be repaid. Go into your communities and follow the example that Jesus set for us all. Never be too good for anyone. Be a friend to all and live to serve others.

  2. Luke 6:32-36
    32 “If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do that. 34 And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, expecting to be repaid in full. 35 But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. 36 Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.

  3. Luke 14:12-14
    12 Then Jesus said to his host, “When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends, your brothers or sisters, your relatives, or your rich neighbors; if you do, they may invite you back and so you will be repaid. 13 But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, 14 and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”
