Introducing my new book, “Living in Humility…Daily Following the Humble King.” 

This project is a work-in-progress… Along with “love God and neighbor,” humility is one of the most important, all-pervasive character qualities God develops in us as we  seek to keep growing in Christ. 

After several months of writing, the book is still “wet cement.”  I have already received very valuable input from five friends who have read and critiqued it. They have given me very helpful suggestions for improvement.   Sometime in the next 3 months, this book will be released to the public. 

In the meantime, I am inviting conversation and input on this project!    I invite you to read my “Living in Humility” blog which will contain excerpts from various chapter in the book.  I heartily welcome your comments!

Post #6: Living in Humility 

Humility Brings Rewards 

If you’re smart, you’ll learn humility.  If you want your relationship with God to flourish, you’ll walk humbly.  If you want satisfying relationships with your family, friends and work mates, you’ll develop a humble heart.  If you want the best long-term rewards available, you’ll always be learning from Jesus’ example of humility. 

Humility is a safeguard against unnecessary failure and disappointment.  We will make mistakes and be disappointed, but we can minimize that by learning the Jesus way.  Humility makes us ready to learn from anyone, anywhere, anytime.  

Without humility, you can’t be a lifelong learner.    To be an apprentice of Jesus we must constantly have the humility of a child who is eager to learn.  A teachable heart opens the door to God’s grace. 

Scripture teaches that we catch God’s attention by walking in humility.  Despite the trials we may undergo, walking in humility brings a huge reward: 

God rewards the humble with wisdom.[i] 

God saves and shows favor to the humble.[ii] 

God guides and sustains  the humble.[iii] 

He crowns the humble with victory [iv] 

He hears the prayers of the humble.[v] 

Humility is the fear of the LORD; its wages are riches and honor and life.[vi] 

The God of all grace is all about helping us, enabling us, and blessing us.  The idea of grace in the Bible describes the whole of God’s activity towards his children.  It’s available in unlimited measure to those who choose a humble path.
