Reward of humility.

As a prideful person, humility takes work for me. My latest struggle with pride came over an issue with my crafting business. My inventory requires me to move up to a larger space and pay more rent. However, the communication in telling me this information didn’t go well. My anger began to rise; my old nature started to rear its angry head, and my pride flared into action.

But then I realized that getting angry and acting childish did no good. Thinking of a friend’s daughter who went through a similar situation and her humility inspired me to rethink my actions. I want to build good relationships and represent Christ well, not give the devil a foothold.

So, I humbled myself and sent an apologetic email, looking at it from their perspective and thanking them for doing their best to help me. Instead of creating tension, humility paved the way for peace. I didn’t get what I wanted, but I trust God to pave the way for something even better.

Pride destroys, humility builds.

Lord, forgive us when we let pride lead the way. Please keep us humble, treating others as Jesus would, with grace and mercy. Let us become more like Christ as we pursue Him daily. IJNIP. Amen
