Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll

Humble in Heart
by Charles R. Swindoll

Take my yoke and learn from Me, 
for I am gentle and humble in heart, 
and you will find rest for your souls.
Matthew 11:29

What is the most Christlike attitude on earth? Think before you answer too quickly. 

I am certain many would answer love. That is understandable, for He did indeed love to the uttermost. 

Others might say patience. Again, not a bad choice. I find no evidence of impatience or anxious irritability as I study His life. 

Grace would also be a possibility. No man or woman ever modeled or exhibited the grace that He demonstrated right up to the moment He breathed His last.

As important as those traits may be, however, they are not the ones Jesus Himself referred to when He described Himself for the only time in Scripture: "I am gentle and humble in heart" (Matthew 11:29), which might best be summed up in the one word unselfish

According to Jesus' testimony, that is the most Christlike attitude we can demonstrate.
