Blessings of a humble servant. 11.9.10 & 3.23.12

Don’t work yourself into the spotlight;

don’t push your way into the place of prominence.

It’s better to be promoted to a place of honor

than face humiliation by being demoted. Proverbs 25: 5-6

Trust In Gods perfect timing, when it comes to being honored or promoted to a higher position in any area in life. Everyones desires an honored position…and the world would rather have the position of honor, then cultivating the character that is worthy of such a position. Prominence and honor received before a person is ready for it, will prove to be more of a curse then a blessing. The goal of a man is to cultivate a sweet humble heart of a servant, esteeming the needs of others as greater then his one. In right time, God may choose to lift up and honor that person or He may not…for he knows the treasure and blessing is not in the honor, but in the heart condition. Action. My sons, It is more blessed to give then receive…be a man who lives a simple life daily being faithful to his calling…desiring the satisfaction and approval of God as more important than approval of man.
