“Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for ‘God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.’”
- 1 Peter 5:5
Daily, the Bible calls us to clothe ourselves with humility. Here are a few pro-tips; those who clothe themselves in humility...
Speak less about themselves and more about others.
Mind their own business, trying not to manage other people's affairs.
Accept criticism and correction with joy.
Don't mind being slighted, forgotten, and disliked.
Are quick to pass over the mistakes of others.
Are kind and gentle, even when provoked.
I admit, these are not easy clothes to wear. But, nothing worth doing comes easy. The call is a “daily” call; humility is a discipline learned over time. Are we perfect? No. Are we progressing? Yes. Progress over perfection as we “daily strive to clothe ourselves in humility.”
