“Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it‘s thinking of yourself less.“ ~ A.C. Lewis
Be HUMBLE: Sounds easy, right? I’m not trying to smash the Messiah complex or trying to be egotistical. When you’re doing great things, sometimes you just want to take credit for them. But we should focus on keeping our heads small and our hearts modest.
“DAMMIT, her bragging is getting on my NERVES! Someone REALLY needs to humble her.” We have all experienced them. Those people who simply cannot resist telling you How WONDERFUL their life is, How SMART their children are, or how SUCCESSFUL their spouse is. And they always seem to ONE-UP you.
They believe that they are better than others. The truth is all the money in the world doesn’t make you a better person. It simply means that you have more money. After all, money can‘t buy everything. Am I Right? And to be honest now, these are the same people that cause you to duck or roll your eyes😩 at the mere sight of them heading your way!😞
It is far more impressive when you let others discover your good qualities without your help. And while there is nothing wrong with telling people your “good news” Sometimes we have to be careful not to cross the line between sharing our joy and rubbing someone’s nose into our good fortune.
And if you think boasting will make someone else feel that they are lacking in their own accomplishments or circumstances then you are just being SELFISH. Because humble people are quiet and meek and don’t need to brag about their accomplishments or beg others for attention to impress. They already feel confident enough in themselves and don’t wish to have the spotlight on them.
99% of the time the reason that our dreams/visions crumble is because we open our mouth too soon to the wrong people at the wrong time. We share our dreams/visions with people who claim to be ‘friends’. The envy and low-key jealousy is enough for people to feed off or tear what COULD OF BEEN before it even happens. So let *GOD* work everything out at the right time and on his time!
The bible says, “Humble yourself before the Lord, and HE will lift you up.” (James 4:10) I have learnt that the greatest people are more likely to learn, to serve, and to not think too highly of themselves. In other words. We are not who we think we are BUT what we think, we are!
People can sense genuine and authentic love and acceptance. I’m always blown away by how many people say Thank you, for a hug and a smile given.😊 Be that tiny piece in that giant puzzle. In reality life doesn’t owe us anything, we actually owe something to life. Focus on what you can give, not what you can get.
Humility begins in our hearts. It has nothing to prove, but everything to offer.😊
Blessings and Love…..
