so that none of us can boast.
Not long ago, I heard someone speak about humility. Humility is very important and as I grown to realize the full importance of humility, I think of the things that humble me.
In the city that I used to live in there stands a tall hill in one of the city parks. After work, I would change into work-out attire and drive to the park and climb the hill, over and over again. Standing on the highest point of the hill did not allow me to see very much of the city at all really. But, looking out at what I could see still made me feel small and insignificant.
As I moved to the Atlanta area, I drove through the mountains and valleys of Tennessee. As I traveled, the views of my drive allow me to put a few things into perspective as well.
I already know, but these things remind me that I am nothing and no one.
Sometimes, going out the ocean makes me feel the same way …
A wise man once said, ‘The ocean is the king of 100 rivers because it is humble.’
Another familiar adage states, ‘the gentle outlast the strong’.
As I view the beauty of the land and thank God for all of His creation, I am humbled that He also took the time to create me. I pray that I am always making Him pleased that He has.
