The power of humility - part 2

Acts 16:33-34: At that hour of the night the jailer took them and washed their wounds; then immediately he and all his family were baptized. The jailer brought them into his house and set a meal before them; he was filled with joy because he had come to believe in God—he and his whole family (NIV).

Here we see how God accomplishes His will through a chain reaction of humble acts. First, Paul and Silas humbled themselves by refusing to run away after the earthquake opened the prison doors. Then the jailer humbled himself when he brought the very prisoners he was assigned to guard to his home where he washed their wounds and fed them! It must have been a powerful testimony because the jailer's whole family believed in God and was baptized.

Where do you need to humble yourself today? Do you need to apologize to your kids for being sarcastic or harsh? Did you dismiss their feelings in order to defend your own point?

Let your example start a chain reaction of humble acts in your own home.
