|Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; someone else, and not your own lips. ĖProverbs 27:2
I was talking to a friend of mine who played the piano at an event we had at my Church last week. He is extremely talented, and whenever I told him that, he became very uncomfortable. I asked him why he felt that way, and he said that it was because he was just the vessel and he didnít like taking credit for something that God was doing through him. Hearing this statement made me think even more highly of him than I did before and I complimented him even more.
There is something very amazing about people who exalt God above themselves! God delights in this so much and I know that he blesses people for it. Humility is one of the greatest attributes you can have as a Christian. Everyone should endeavour to teach him/herself and their children how to be humble. If you will only humble yourself, God will lift you up!
There isnít much else to write regarding this, but please please please brethren; be humble in any and every situation. Give God the glory in all situations and realise that you are nothing without him and you have nothing that you didnít receive from him. Let another praise you and not your own mouth. God never used anyone that was not humble. He never allowed anyone to follow him until they denied themselves. He never exalted anyone who wasnít first made low. Humility goes a very long way. Find it and treasure it with everything you are.
Stay blessed and spread the word.
