Nothing Stronger Than a Humble Heart

Humility is an indispensable virtue in the life of a Christian.  Many people conceive of humility only as weakness.  The last thing they want is to be perceived as weak in character.  To them, humble Christians are spineless.    But the reality is exactly the opposite.  The Bible teaches that humility is the foundation of a relationship with God.  Those who are humble see their need of something outside of themselves.  The humble have learned to depend on God and His unlimited resources for their every need. There is nothing stronger than a humble heart.   Paul said, “When I am weak, then I am strong.”  How can that be?  “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.”  Do not let the world’s twisted ideas of Christianity determine how you relate to God.
