Humility and Why it's Important

Merriam Webster Dictionary defines humility as: the quality or state of not thinking you are better than other people : the quality or state of being humble. When I think of humbleness I think of how Jesus died on the cross just for you and me. 

Today as i listened to the song  Lift us up to fall by Tenth Avenue North, these words in the song tugged at my heart: "You took the nails to give us love. And we stand in awe before your throne. There's no where else that we can go" As i listened to those words, i instantly had to go back and play them again because they tugged at my heart so much. Think about that for minute, he did that for you and me, without hesitation. 

As i think about this months theme a little bit more i am reminded of a mission trip that i took to Mexico over spring break my sophomore year of college, I remember that first day when we got there and the people from the church were so welcoming, it was so humbling to be able to help them and get to know them. Just being with them that week was a humbling experience in itself. 

So, as you go through the rest of your week, be reminded of the words above and the words of Psalm 29:2 "Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness."
