With all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love (Ephesians 4:2)
Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. (Philippians 2:3)
We complain about others all the time. Even one who claims to be a saint can attest to something someone else has been doing “wrong” in their eyes. But this is something we must face and ultimately learn to stop if and when we allow love to invade our very being. We do have a selfish ego and pride always tries to allow our desires to be above others.
It isn’t a surprise I was going to touch about this subject. If it was, then boo, surprise. But as some who keep up to date to my articles or my blog, I’ve touched about love and in turn humility or humbleness entails within. Even with just the beginning sentences I can picture people turning heads. This is necessary like I explained.
Humility and becoming humble allows us to truly love with a love that stretches beyond conditions. In reality, the world has spawned into a narcisstic view. We are taught nowadays to value ourselves and do things for us but in turn does that also not seeme to be a relative view or an opinion in itself? I mean let me explain. For example we are presented to become a better person for yourself not someone else, let’s put it in a scenario such as a relationship. We say something like, people should accept us for us. This is true, but to an extent. Like I’ve explained, true love requires sacrifice and like a quote I’ve read before, “true love is one when two people come together to sacrifice and change for one another, they become better versions, pushing eachother to new limits.”. Now all of this amounts to all and any kind of relationship.
Like Jesus taught, it is better to give than to receive and even how early Christians and even people understood about being in this earth. We are here all together, a body of people, brothers and sisters. We have placed too much focus on ourselves that we disregard others and in turn ask why the world is in such a state. Humility is a necessity and he who is humble is wise because the wise understand that it matters not what one can gain but what one could give, their knowledge, hope and etc.
Just the same it is a mark of a truly changed heart. When one begins to truly love they want what is best for the other. Let us look within ourselves and ask ourselves this question, is it all about me? Because truly I say to you, we are but a grain of sand and to focus so much simply on our selves we lose a sense of true joy which can be found in relationships, family, friends, lovers, even strangers. Be an example that there is people who love, who care. Let’s end our pride and start in humble beginnings. Be blessed.
