God loves humility! The Jesus who said, “I am gentle and humble in heart,” loves those who are gentle and humble in heart. And Paul reminds us in Romans 12:3, “Don’t cherish exaggerated ideas of yourself or your importance, but try to have a sane estimate of your capabilities by the light of faith that God has given to you.”
Humility isn’t the same as low self-esteem. Being humble doesn’t mean you think you have nothing to offer; it means you know exactly what you have to offer and no more.
An elementary–age boy came home from the tryouts for the school play. “Mommy, Mommy,” he announced, “I got a part. I’ve been chosen to sit in the audience and clap and cheer.”
When you have a chance to clap and cheer, do you take it? If you do—then your head is starting to fit your hat size!
