It amazes me how social media sites have exposed the kind of people most are these days. Forgive me but it's very easy to spot the persons who are so full of themselves that they always want to earn praises from other people either for their beauty or intelligence (which is foolishness in the eyes of God, anyway) or wealth. This is, however, contrary to the desire of our Lord God for us. As we can see in the Bible, God requires us to be humble. And Jesus was the perfect example of this. As He is the Son of God, He could have walked the Earth as a powerful king. He was, however, born in a humble place and earned a living as a carpenter before He began His work of salvation. Before he was crucified, he was taunted and mocked and beaten, yet He humbly accepted the insults without defending Himself. And then He made the great sacrifice of His life. If the Son of God who owned the heaven and the earth and everything in them could be that humble, couldn't we, too? We, who really own nothing except the things given to us by God? Let us see Jesus as the perfect example of humility and follow in His footesteps. God bless you.
