Today’s Reading:

I Peter 5:1-5.

"Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisted the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. " (v. 5)


Humility, a big word that is becoming scarce in our generation. Most are not ready to bow to another. Humility and submission are sisters.

The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility. Proverbs 15:33. Godly humility is being comfortable with who you are in the Lord and therefore putting others first.

When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom. Proverbs 11:12. And as read from our text today, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble." 1 Peter 5:5. Humility is the quality of being humble. God Almighty described Moses as the meekest man on earth. Numbers 12:3. Pride is the arch enemy of humility, little wonder then that God hates proud people.

  • When we look all around us, we see that pride has taken over the heart of man.

  • We see selfishness. We see aggression.

  • We see hatred. We see self-centeredness etc.

  • When you see a humble man, he is not lousy but silent; he is in control of situation; he serves willingly, he is correctable, he is teachable, he is gentle, he is a pursuer of greatness, he reverence God and most importantly, he has the fear of God.


Do you qualify to be called a humble person? Are you given to helping & caring for others in all honesty? Do you dare to be different? Abraham (was a friend of God); Moses (friend of God & meekest man on Earth); Noah (He found grace in the sight of God); Enoch (He walked with God and was not, for God took him.); Daniel (favoured of God & purposed in his heart not to defile himself.) ; David (a man after God's heart); The Apostles of Jesus; Mary, the mother of Jesus (highly favoured among women); Our Lord Jesus Christ (Epitome of humility); And you...(--- fill the gap).

Oh, you want to be humble, but the flesh is weak. Ask the Holy Spirit for help. However, the Holy Spirit cannot help if you have not accepted Jesus as your Lord and Saviour. Confess and repent of your sins, invite him into your heart.

God bless!
