The Prize Of Humility In Life

Humility in life opens up a lot of blessings on people….in humility, value others above yourself and God will give you the prize of exaltation

Humility in life

Whoever then humbles himself like this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.(Matthew 18:4)

There are a number of people in the world today who have shown an exemplary life of humility in life.Let’s take the president of  Uruguay (Jose Mujica) for instance.He has refused to use luxury cars and other expensive assets. He drives around in  “87 Volkeswagon Beetle,donates 90% of his $12,000 annual salary to charity. People call him the poorest president in  the world,but he is not moved by what people say.This is a true kind of humility. Human beings must remember that, we are mere dust and any moment from now we will leave everything behind.

Humility in life is one of the most popular virtues Jesus Christ talked about. Humility is the gateway to greatness. But today,it is unfortunate that there are millions of people who feel very pompous because of their money,fame or power.The worse part is to see some men of God falling into this category of arrogant people. Jose Mujica even joins queues in hospital and people always criticise him. He is telling the whole world,that humility is the key to greatness. Even Jesus Christ humbled himself by washing the feet of his disciples.

When you feel too important than others, you fall in life very quick. Your position or wealth doesn’t guarantee you to exalt yourself.

” For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”(Luke 14:11).

May God bless all those who humble themselves in life. It takes the fear of God to serve a fellow friend in humility. It is God who exalts, so everyone must learn from Jesus Christ, Jose Mujica and anyone who shows true humility in life.
