Be Humble or You’ll Stumble
By Rick Warren
“Fear-of-GOD is a school in skilled living—first you learn humility, then you experience glory” (Proverbs 15:33 The Message).
Wise people remain humble. Humility and teachability go together. Be humble or you’ll stumble.
Humility begins by simply realizing you’re not God. Whenever you get stressed, repeat this to yourself: “God is God, and I’m not. God is God, and I’m not. God is God, and I’m not.”
That’s humility. People who aren’t humble think they’re God or have ultimate control.
Do you have a goal of becoming a wiser person?
Get to know God. You’ll be wiser in building relationships, managing money, handling conflict, diffusing problems, and dealing with all kinds of other challenges in life.
The Bible tells us, “Fear-of-GOD is a school in skilled living—first you learn humility, then you experience glory” (Proverbs 15:33 The Message).
Humility says you can learn from anyone. You don’t know it all. No one does! That’s why we need to remain teachable, humble, and lifelong learners.
