Devotion: In Humility

Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. (KJV) ( 1 Peter 5:5 )

As much as we think we know it all, there is always more to learn. But we can only learn as much as we want to learn.

We could be surrounded by the smartest people in the world, but if our mind and heart aren’t open to growing and maturing, then we can’t improve. Having a teachable heart allows us to serve others and give respect to those who have gone before us.

When someone older and wiser extends advice and suggestions to you, how do you respond?

If you find yourself stiffening at advice, take a moment to encourage growing a teachable heart in you.
