For those of you in the United States, Happy Thanksgiving! Today is the day that we celebrate our gratitude for all the blessings we have received. God’s Word speak frequently about gratitude, which goes hand in hand with humility. Without humility, you will never be truly grateful. As we continue reading in Proverbs 29, see what it says:
A man’s pride will bring him low, But a humble spirit will obtain honor.
Proverbs 29:23 NASB
This idea hoes contrary to everything we think we know. Humility leads to honor, not pride. Humility knows that we can’t do everything and that we don’t deserve everything. Humility is truly thankful for all the people and all the help and assistance they have received along the way. As you celebrate Thanksgiving today, are you truly humble and thankful for all that you have been blessed with or is pride robbing you of humility and thankfulness?
