I’m often encouraged and instructed by Don Ruhl’s twice-daily email devotionals. They’re short and to the point. Here’s one from this afternoon.
The Power of Humility
By Don Ruhl
Since we should submit to one another, clothing ourselves with humility, because God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble (1 Peter 5:5), Peter made this conclusion, “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time” (1 Peter 5:6).
Humility is one of those many things in life that produces the opposite of what we expect. As people of the world, we think that humbling ourselves before others will humiliate us and hurt us, but Peter assures us that it has the opposite effect. Since God works in your life, He will exalt you when you submit to others and be humble.
Try it and see what happens.
