Wisdom Matters (Day 27)


Humility is either embraced by choice or learned by force. Better to be one who seeks to be humble than have it thrusted upon them.

Listen to today’s Truth…

Choosing humility is wisdom.

Read the following Scripture…

Proverbs 18:12 says, “Before a downfall the heart is haughty, but humility comes before honor.”

Consider these thoughts…

The word “haughty” in this proverb is literally translated in the Hebrew to mean “to be high, exalted.”  
To be recognized above the rest and to be better than others can be an enticing position. However, it’s a dangerous one. It’s something that you must wait to be given, rather than fighting to attain.
Allow your honor and blessing to be God-given, then you know it will remain with you. Striving for it at the expense of others is short-lived glory.

Apply the truth! The following are optional things to do…

  • How can you humble yourself to those around you today?
  • Lift up someone around you today.

Pray…

  • For a humble heart.
