Humility Is Not Seeming Unheard
You know what I fear more than anything? A friend to say when I’m gone that they didn’t know I was a Christian.
I often hear good-hearted people, that have an abundance of talent and love for God, say they don’t share because they don’t want to steal the spotlight or be in the forefront. They don’t want to look like a hypocrite. They don’t want to come off offensive or pushy. They don’t want to seem as if they are bragging about their blessings.
I’ve been guilty at times as well. However, we must fight that feeling.
As leaders of different ministries, we don’t have to assume credit to instill credibility in a legacy.
We don’t have to receive recognition to train others to recognize their own greatness.
What we do need, is to be in the places that will aid the lost to be found.
We do need to make such a change in the atmosphere that a person can never question if we knew Jesus.
I can guarantee in those times you don’t want to speak and seem argumentative or arrogant, the enemy is roaring loud and proud.
We need to make it known that we are blessed because God gave us the ability to bless others. That is our duty as a follower of Christ!
If you have a gift, talent, or something to share about your faith shout it from the mountain top! If you’ve been saved and have a testimony that will open eyes and change lives don’t sit quietly awaiting the perfect moment to speak. Every day is a test for you to testify!
There is a time to be quiet and your spirit will discern it but I can guarantee it is not within your witness.
I run into many clients in business that fear over-developing their brand or bringing too much attention to themselves.
Humility is not remaining in a shadow out of fear of appearing vain.
Humility is knowing that without God we are nothing and because of God we are empowered. Successful. Chosen.
Humility is strength.
Humility is selflessness.
Humility is love.
Be bold. Be a leader.
Speak for integrity.
Stand for Christ.
“By humility and the fear of the LORD Are riches and honor and life.”
Proverbs 22:4 NKJV
“And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.”
Colossians 3:23-24 NKJV
