Honor Before Humility? Only In Your Dictionary
“Humans?! Never!😤 How could I (*raises shoulder and checks Himself out*) take up that filthy form, live among them and even suffer and die for them. God forbid 😂 that’s condescending!
You could always give them a heavenly lamb from the storehouse, or send an angel. Better still, you could wipe them out so we can have peace of mind.”
Phew! Thank God that wasn’t Jesus’ attitude towards the redemption plan. Jesus humbled himself by taking in human nature and was obedient even to the point of death, even death on the cross. And then God honored and greatly exalted Him. (Phil 2:6-11)
pride won’t take you far, Proverbs 29:23 says a person’s pride will humiliate him. What’s there to be boast of? All that you have/are was given to you by our gracious Father, so if anyone should boast he better boast in the Lord.
Be humble and God will exalt you in due time, for he gives grace to the humble. Peace.
