Read Matthew 5:5
Jesus says, “God blesses those who are humble, for they will inherit the whole earth.” How would you define humility, and do you see it as a weakness or as a virtue? If you think of it as a weakness, why? If you see it as a virtue, how do you see it play out in your life?
Read Philippians 2:9-11.
Jesus’ name is above every other name; this should motivate us to be on mission for Him. This is the landing point of humility. Think about and write down some ways you can choose to be humble this week.
Memorize Matthew 5:5. “God blesses those who are humble, for they will inherit the whole earth.”
This week spend some time praying through and meditating on the verses listed below. As you do so, answer the question(s) after each verse.
Monday: Read James 4:6-8.
What areas of your life do you need to submit to God’s leadership?
Wednesday: Read Colossians 3:12. How is humility related to the other traits in this verse? How is cultivating humility related to dependence on God?
Friday: Read Micah 6:8.
As a follower of Christ, to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with God is a requirement. Are these traits evident in your life?
Share your journey into humility with someone this week. Humility is a tough trait for many people, and by sharing with someone else how you are pursuing it, might encourage them to join you in that pursuit. See if you can hold each other accountable in pursuing Godly humility.
