“He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” – Micah 6:8
You might often hear others talking about why it’s important to be humble. You could ask what does it really mean to be humble? Well, someone once described it like this; ‘humility isn’t thinking less of yourself, but thinking about yourself less’. This really means that we stop thinking and focusing on ourselves all the time and our needs but start looking out for others.
Today’s verse tells you to walk humbly with your God. To be a generation who are really ‘burning’ for Jesus, it’s so key to be a humble person.
God’s heart and attention are really drawn to those who are humble. To be humble, you need to learn the ability of taking your attention off yourself and quit living in your own strength, but be determined to trust God in everything, learning to depend on Him day by day, and preferring others above yourself to the point where you forget about yourself. At the end of the day, it’s all about Jesus and not ourselves; as we turn our focus completely on Him, we begin to start serving others more by accident now, than we ever did in our own strength before on purpose.
