“Humble Yourselves” – Toni M. Babcock

“When arrogance comes, disgrace follows, but with humility comes wisdom.” (Proverbs 11:2 CSB)

We live in an age where people are easily offended. In fact, Jesus warned in the last days “…shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another,” (Matthew 24:10 KJV) — but a sign of wisdom is a heart of humility. Those who choose to be humble get past minor infractions, whether it’s being slighted in some way or criticized in another. Not so with the arrogant. The arrogant are easily offended and tend to hold onto their grudges.

How can we as believers steer clear of arrogance and a haughty spirit? Ask yourself this: do you ever wonder what is wrong with your brother or sister in Christ when they don’t respond to your need for approval or validate you in the way you think they should? Do you carry a code of expected behavior in your head for others to live by, and when they “break the rules” do you take it personally? Does that provoke a retaliatory response from you which backfires and fails to achieve the changes you desire? Do you have a need to control or manipulate people and situations, and does your tendency to be easily offended produce a lot of surface friends who tiptoe around your sore spots and handle your personality with kid gloves? Does everything boil down to being all about you?

If so, ask God what you might learn about humility. Look at the life of Jesus. Did he waste a lot of spiritual energy being offended at people? He certainly had a right to make people pay for their sins, but did he claim that right on His way to the cross? No. In the same way, haven’t you and I been called to die to ourselves and live by faith in Jesus? (Galatians 2:20 CSB) The answer is clear. “Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.” (James 4:10 CSB)

"After reading your book, and being that I’m a cop, the evidence was compelling so the choice became easy. Thank you for being a big part of saving my life and seeing the truth about Jesus. My life has drastically changed for the better!!! I’ve handed out many of your books already, and can hardly wait to give more away! Thank you. And God bless!"
