A cheerful heart brings a smile to your face; a sad heart makes it hard to get through the day. First, you learn humility, then you experience glory. Humility is a precursor to honor. The payoff for meekness and Fear-of-God is plenty and honor and a satisfying life.
I have done the Lord’s work humbly and with many tears. I have endured the trials that came to me. In the same way ….. all of you, serve each other in humility, for “God opposes the proud but favors the humble.”
Proverbs 15:13 ~ Proverbs 15:33 ~ Proverbs 18:12 ~ Proverbs 22:4 ~ Acts 20:19 – 1 Peter 5:5
