Highway to Humility = Pathway to Joy

            Have you had your Joy Juice today?  May each serving of our Joy Juice be spiced with humility!

            Someone once said, “Those traveling the highway of humility won’t be bothered with any heavy traffic.”  Truly, the attribute of humility is hard to find these days.  We observe false modesty and those who pretend to be humble.  But a true authentic Christian who exhibits genuine humility is the person who realizes he is nothing without God.  “To grow tall spiritually, a person must first learn to kneel.”

            The Word of God always says it best! In Romans 12:3, we read: 

“For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.”

My Bible footnote explains:  Healthy self-esteem is important because some of us think too little of ourselves; on the other hand, some of us overestimate ourselves.   The key to an honest and accurate evaluation is knowing the basis of our self-worth—our identity in Christ.  Apart from him, we aren’t capable of much by eternal standards; in him, we are valuable and capable of worthy service.  Evaluating yourself by worldly standards of success and achievement can cause you to think too much about your worth in the eyes of others and thus miss your true value in God’s eyes.”

           Humbly accept your value in the eyes of God; and joyfully serve Him by serving others.
