Just as Christ humbled Himself.(Philippians 2:8; 2Corinthians 8:9).when he was a man, so can we. How did he? He prayed and studied:.Luke 2:46,47. He knew His identity. We too should work out our own salvation:.Philippians 2:12. We too need to know our true identity:.Isaiah 66:2 "For all those things that are and have been has mine hand made, says the LORD, but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit and trembles.(extreme regard for, regarding it not as something trivial; takes it seriously; considers the importance of; high attention to; not a fearful aversion to).at my word."

Luke 14:11 "For whosoever exalts himself shall be abased and he that humbles himself shall be exalted." (*)

Why the need to be humbled? And why do some get so burned in life? And others seemingly go through life doing evil with no apparent consequences. Why?

Because the Creator cares that we are in touch with who we really are and cares about us not being so dependent upon and related to the physical. For example: One who lacks patience.(a most important character trait for eternal living).lacks tranquility:.Luke 21:19. Without that, how can one hear the voice of God.

One of the saddest things about life is not to be learning from it.

Such are the people who go through the roughest times. They are not 'smart' enough to turn themselves around, instead allowing life's hard times to beat them down.

They lack the interest to learn from others, to talk to them, to get advice from many people on their contemplated courses of action. Perhaps they have never heard Madonna's song, the lyrics of which include the words "all people are lessons to learn"; situations too.

Their direction is of those who seem to have to 'learn the hard way'. It is so sad that life is set up that way, but ultimately it will turn to good for these obstinate ones. They will probably adhere to God with such tenacity, once their minds become enlightened

Matthew 18:4 "Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven."

How do you humble yourself? Decide to serve others and do your best for others:.Matthew 23:11 "But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant" Galatians 5:13,14 "For, brethren, you have been called unto liberty, only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this, you shall love your neighbour as yourself.".The one main thing the Creator is, is love.

Think of others as you serve them as if the other was the Creato:.Colossians 3:23,24 "And whatsoever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not unto men, knowing that of the Lord you shall receive the reward of the inheritance, for you serve the Lord Christ." Matthew 4:10 "Then said Emmanuel.....for it is written, you shall worship the Lord thy God and him only shall you serve.".That's because all is God, or to put it another way, all the energy that sustains all we see and know of, is the intelligent energy that is the Infinite One. Beneath the atoms of all things is the same energy. Have a loving outlook toward all nature, toward all in nature, toward all mankind, for, the Creator is all of it.

That is why whatever you do in life and whatever comes across your path, you have no reason to grumble and complain about:.Philippians 2:14 "Do all things without murmurings and disputings.".You, yourself are responsible for all in your life. You, yourself caused even the things of life you do not like. It is all God, because God is all things, including you and your mind is for learning from choices you make. Choices are actually made by one's general attitude. It's not like you have an apple or an orange in front of you for selecting which one you prefer at the time. What's your general mood? What are your inclinations? What do you want? What you want shows what you are. What you are includes your moods and inclinations. What you think and do evinces your heart.

Think of the importance of others to the Creator and get the mind off self-importance:.Philippians 2:3. How important is everyone to God?.Psalms 23:5. How important are they to you?.Acts 20:35 "I have showed you all things, how that so labouring you ought to support the weak and to remember the words of the Lord Emmanuel, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive."

Giving is living; getting is fretting! Nothing turns you on like giving with no strings attached:.Proverbs 22:9 "He that has a bountiful eye shall be blessed, for he gives of his bread to the poor."

One keeps himself humble by deciding to always be in a frame of mind to serve, to help and to assist others and by agreeing with the Infinite's One's words.(why it is important to agree before proving the Bible true).as recorded in the Holy Bible..2Timothy 3:15-17 "...the holy scriptures are able to make you wise unto salvation...scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction and instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works."

James 3:13 "Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? Let him shew out of a good conversation.(old English for 'conduct').his works with meekness of wisdom." 

1Peter 5:5 ".....all of you be subject one to another and be clothed with humility, for God resists the proud and gives grace to the humble.".Each of us has a choice to be one way or the other.

Proverbs 18:2,11,12 "Before destruction the heart of man is haughty and before honour is humility...The rich man's wealth is his strong city and as an high wall in his own conceit. Before destruction, the heart of man is haughty and before honour is humility." 

Proverbs 22:24 "By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches and honour and life." 

Proverbs 15:33 "The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom and before honour is humility."

Proverbs 16:19 "Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud." 

Proverbs 29:23 "A man's pride shall bring him low, but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit." 

Isaiah 57:15 "For thus says the high and lofty One that inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble and to revive the heart of the contrite ones."

The Creator's treasures are not for the worldly cunning and deceitful, not for those who are wise in their own eyes:.Isaiah 5:21; Luke 10:21.
