Humility and Thanksgiving

Humility and Thanksgiving

For the past couple of weeks our small group has been discussing humility. What does humility look like?

Throughout scripture we see the character of God alongside human nature. God is the creator and redeemer. He is holy, righteous, just, merciful and loving. In contrast all people have sinned. 

We need saving.

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2: 8-10

Humility is the full recognition of God and our brokenness. Humility directs us to be obedient to God’s plan for human life, and through Jesus have a relationship with God.

We have been created to give glory to God.

In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 1: 6-7

Have a blessed Thanksgiving! As we give thanks, let us praise and give glory to God.

  1. It is hard to be quite humble
    when you are as cool as me,
    ready to dance or to rumble,
    and thus the ordinary flee
    from my bright and shining person,
    from my flawless groovy style,
    for they cannot be a version
    of me by a country mile.
    But I am nice, I stoop in kindness
    for each pallid lesser soul
    wandering in their confused blindness,
    and I can place them on a roll
    and assuage their unhip hurt
    by giving them a Bee Gees shirt.
