Bible Challenge – Matthew 23

“The greatest among you must be a servant. 12 But those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” v.11-12 (NLT)

Humility! One of the most powerful displays of Christlikeness that can be seen in you by others.  However, many times we confuse humility with ho hum living. Humility is not the absence of confidence, it’s the absence of arrogance.

With the attitude of Humility, Jesus challenged society’s norms. To Him, greatness comes from serving, which He defines as giving of yourself to God and to others. Serving keeps us aware of others’ needs, and it stops us from focussing only on ourselves. Remember, Jesus came as a servant and calls us to serve by following His example!

Today, when it comes to applause, who do you seek to please, who do you seek to serve?
