Is it important to be humble before God?
In our modern world there aren’t too many people that we meet that we would describe as humble. Because on our culture’s obsession with individualism, status and achievement, it’s hard to “get ahead” by showing humility.
With respect to our relationship with God, however, “success” as a Christian is absolutely dependent on our willingness to humble ourselves. Without humility, we cannot listen to the wisdom that flows from God to us in prayer. The psalm today reminds us of this quite clearly.
Good and upright is the LORD;
thus he shows sinners the way.
He guides the humble to justice,
he teaches the humble his way.
Help me to be humble today, Lord!
