Having humility keeps your mind, heart and soul in check. “Having humility doesn’t mean you think less of yourself, It means that you think of yourself less.”
I’ve lived most of my life looking out for myself only. Putting myself 1st every chance I got. The more I felt this way, the further I pushed myself away from GOD and HIS purpose for me.
Sometimes we get trapped into looking out for #1, ourselves; not knowing that true peace and happiness comes from helping and serving others, even our own children. When we serve others, we then serve a bigger purpose in this world. Sometimes, we need to make decisions to benefit us, there is nothing wrong with that, as long as we know that those decisions won’t affect others around us in a negative way.
Stay humble and you will make GOD smile, among others.
