Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.
I am struck by those last five words: “humility that comes from wisdom.” Some people no doubt think of humility as weakness. But this verse points out the true source of humility. When I struggle with and ultimately accept the sovereignty of God- when I have that wisdom, I can claim humility. I know how small and powerless I am without Him.
Father God, help me to be humble in all that I do and say. You are my Lord, and I am your servant. Amen
