NOTHING STINKS LIKE FALSE humility. Oswald Chambers was right to call conscious humility “the most satanic type of pride.” False humility invites attention to itself; true humility is unconscious. Great men never think they are great, and small men never think they are small.
A truly humble person is more jealous for God’s honor than his own, “Preach the gospel, die, and be forgotten”. False humility submits, but does not obey, “But Ahaz said, “I will not ask, nor will I test the LORD!”” Isaiah 7:12 The prophet came to King Ahaz and told him to “ask a sign from the Lord”. He feigned meekness but was puffed up with conceit.
Have you ever had accusations thrown at you from one who states, “I am operating in love and genuine grace!” But with their passive-aggressive speech they condemn your actions? If you are truly operating in grace, you have no need to tell everyone you operate in grace. Today’s social media is the worst. Why do you feel the need to tell everyone your self-righteous plans? If you are truly a humble servant, there’s no need to announce it; just walk it out.
If you only desire to honor God, why do you care what others think? What’s with the arrows? Do you know the arrows you shoot at others will be brought back on you heavier and hotter? “Who are you to judge another’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls.” Romans 14:4a Friend, you have a field given to you from the Lord, mind your crops. Use the gifts, talents and calling God has placed upon you in true meekness and humility. #runyourrace
