The Greatest Act of Humility

By   •   March 27   •   Topics:


In almost every instance in the Bible, as well as in life, pride is associated with failure, not success. We hear a great deal about the inferiority complex, but the superiority complex of pride is seldom spoken of. It was pride that caused the fall of Lucifer, and he became Satan, the devil. It was pride that led King Saul down to a shameful and untimely death. It was pride that caused Peter to deny his Lord.

The greatest act of humility in the history of the universe was when Jesus Christ stooped to die on the cross of Calvary. And before any man can get to heaven, he must kneel at the foot of the cross and acknowledge that he is a sinner, that he has broken the Ten Commandments of God, and that he needs the grace of God in Christ. No man can come proudly to the Savior.

Prayer for the day

Lord Jesus, You suffered such humiliation and pain for me on the cross. I ask You, humbly, to forgive my pride and errant ways that nailed You there.

    Before knowing God , pride was one of my many faults. Looking back I can see that I really had nothing to be proud of. Spiritually speaking , I was bankrupt. The veil was then lifted after I met Christ and then I began a wonderful journey. I try each day to do the best I can …..and continue to fail, too often. However I now am very aware that God is the author of any apparent successes I may have in life, not me. It is 100% him and I am happy to readily acknowledge that fact. Thank you Holy Father for your known and unknown blessings.
