Humility – Matthew 18:2-3

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Matthew 18:2
He called a little child and had him stand among them. 3 And he said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”

Whoa! Did you hear that? We will never… NEVER, enter the kingdom unless we become like little children. But how do we do this? Seriously. Let’s read the following verse to find out.

4 Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

There it is. Humility. If we do not walk in humility, we don’t stand a chance. Oh, we may talk humility. But do we walk in humility? If your answer is yes, then define your answer to yourself. One who is humble cannot look down on others because there should be no one to look down on if you have truly humbled yourself to that position. How do you treat and think of others?

I’ve once heard someone say “Humility is not thinking less of yourself.” It’s thinking of yourself, less.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, shalom!

Here's something interesting to consider:
