Pride is one thing we are all struggle with sometime in our walk, sometimes daily. Pride is such a battle at times, you ask yourself "Did you do that good deed for the Lord, or for your own glory?",I know I question myself quite often.

God wants us humble in spirit, He wants us to think of others before ourselves, He wants us on our knees seeking His every purpose. Oh how I fail Him daily, I do not deserve all the Love He bestows upon me, all the forgiveness of my discretion's. Augustine said,"Other sins find their vent in the accomplishment of evil deeds, whereas pride lies in wait for good deeds, to destroy them, isn't that the truth? We do good and we take the glory for it. God deserves all the glory, not us, not us earthly creatures, we are but a worm without God, we are but a heap of dust.

When you meet a brother or sister that are full of humility, you surely see a difference in them. It is like they glow,there is a contentment in them,

When we look back on Christ Life it was a life of Humility from the time He was born in a manger till the day He hung on the cross for our desecration's, His whole life was to lead up to dying painfully on the cross for His Sheep, the Elect. This is the greatest example of Humility we will ever know about.There was no glory in what He did, the pain He suffered the last days of His life, it was the greatest example of Love shown, He laid down His life for His own.

Philippians 2:7 "He made himself nothing, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men." He emptied Himself and made Himself nothing

Seeing this example doesn't He deserve for us to show humility in our walk? Lord please help those that know you as their Savior to walk in Humility.
