Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for
“God resists the proud,
But gives grace to the humble.”
1 Peter 5:5 NIV
I have learned that as people continues to grow and develop; pride grows as well. We have people who used to be very humble while they had nothing; but when they got money or even a certain positions their attitude totally changed.
We hear stories of young women who changed their attitude after they got married. Some Pastors stopped being servants and started being bosses after they got many members and became famous. I have learned that there are things that can trigger pride inside of us. There is point in life where if you are not carefully pride will be manifested and cause harm to others.
Young people are encouraged to submit themselves to the elders. The whole church is encouraged to be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. If you live a humble life, God will give you the grace you need to overcome any hardship in life.
This morning, I want to remind you to be humble. The greater you are, the more you must humble yourself, so you will find favor in the sight of the Lord. As much as you go higher in life, then learn to humble yourself that you may give God a room to lift you more.
Someone once said, your attitude will determine your altitude. If you want to go higher in life and have a good success in everything you do then you need to be humble in all of your conduct. Learn to humble yourself even if you don't feel like or when people think they know more than you. God will bless you and give you peaceful life.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Father, forgive me for where I have been proud. Help me to live a humble life in all the days of my life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
