Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll

The Fairest Flower
by Charles R. Swindoll

O LORD, my heart is not proud, 
nor my eyes haughty; nor do I involve 
myself in great matters.
Psalm 131:1

Genuine humility isn't something we can announce very easily. 

To claim this virtue is, as a rule, to forfeit it. Humility is the fairest and rarest flower that blooms. Put it on display and instantly it wilts and loses its fragrance! 

No, humility is not something to be announced. It simply belongs in one's life, in the private journal of one's walk with God.

There are two simple and quick ways God says the true condition of the heart is revealed. The first is through the eyes and the second is through the mouth (Luke 6:45).

Keen counselors and wise people are careful to listen to words (what is said as well as what isn't said) and watch the eyes of others. You soon discover that the heart is like a well and the eyes and tongue are like buckets that draw water from the same well. 

If true humility is not in the heart, the eyes show it.
