Being humble can set you free – from yourself

Matthew 12:33 (AMP)
33 Either make the tree sound (healthy and good), and its fruit sound (healthy and good), or make the tree rotten (diseased and bad), and its fruit rotten (diseased and bad); for the tree is known
and recognized and judged by its fruit.

People will know a Christian by their fruit not by how many scriptures we have memorized or how many times we go to church.  When we bear fruit we will be pruned to bear more fruit – which means we go through things to help us develop good character – and more fruit.

Gentleness, humility, and meekness can be difficult Christian virtues to develop in our lives.  Those of us who need humility don’t think we need it at all.  Humility is what can set us free.  A humble person is a happy person because they are not trying to impress anyone and not in competition with others.  They are free to be who they are without pressure to be someone else because they are satisfied with the person God created them to be.    A humble person has worth in value in who they are and not what they do, even if it is something as simple as cleaning toilets.  God anoints each of us in different ways and we all fit in somewhere in life.  God is not as impressed with what we do but rather why we do it.

So many people are not happy in life because they are not satisfied with who they are.

My true belief is that the best way to preach is by our actions and not our words. However, we need some daily inspiration to keep us on our path. We as Christians have a responsibility not to judge others by our words but to show the love of Christ by loving them where they are at on their personal journey in life...and if they never turn their life over to Christ, continue to love them for who they are - after all God does.
