Humility

Aug 23, 2020Musings, Religion0 comments

Humility ~~ I follow up my thoughts on pride from yesterday with the great antidote. One of my favorite Hymns is Be Thou Humble. As we choose to be humble we are able to be lead by a loving Heavenly Father. We have more meaning to our overall existence. We are better to be around at work, at school, or at home.

Humility is not an easy trait to develop. I love living among the mighty mountains and being in natural places because it bears witness to me that there is Someone greater than me. I have come ¥ recognize this as a gift by our Almighty Creator. These creations are from that same Heavenly Father that desires to lead us to eternal joy.

Peter taught, “Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time” (1 Peter 5:5-6) . As we choose to be humble by working together we will come onto the exaltation of God. We will become perfect in Christ.

We may not always see God in our lives and that may make it more difficult to remain humble. We need to look beyond ourselves.

Obtaining humility occurs as we keep the two great commandments; love God and love thy neighbor. Through pray, gratitude, service, and recognizing God’s almighty hand we are able to be more humble. Humility then brings us blessings. We can choose to be humble or perhaps be compelled to be humble.

Alma profoundly taught the Zoramites, “because ye are compelled to be humble blessed are ye; for a man sometimes, if he is compelled to be humble, seeketh repentance; and now surely, whosoever repenteth shall find mercy; and he that findeth mercy and endureth to the end the same shall be saved… Yea, he that truly humbleth himself, and repenteth of his sins, and endureth to the end, the same shall be blessed—yea, much more blessed than they who are compelled to be humble because of their exceeding poverty.” (Alma 32:13,15).

Look to God’s beauty and Be Thou Humble
