Margaret Mead: The Stability of Humility

May 31

Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else. ~ Margaret Mead

I want to teach my children humility in the face of an arrogant world. God opposes the proud and lifts up the humble. Humility is the fertile soil God searches for to prepare His purposes and plant His desires within man’s hearts. A heart void of humility has little hope of growing God’s Love and compassion in it.


The hardest part in teaching my kids humility is found in teaching them to consume God’s Words. If they can learn how alive and active God’s Word is, they might learn much earlier then I ever did to always turn there first, regardless of their situations. And hopefully, through God’s written Word, they’ll begin to recognize the sound of His beautiful and powerful voice, that soft, gentle yet firm voice that can calm any storm and temper every sea. I want them to see that God is who He says He is and that He is with them through all things. I want my children to know that God is a God of His word and that He will never let them down… even when all others do. In an unstable world, it will be our humility before the Lord which will keep us strong and stable.

Peace to you, today. Sean Gutteridge

Today’s Scripture: Isaiah 66:1-2

1 Thus says the LORD: “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool; what is the house that you would build for me, and what is the place of my rest?

2 All these things my hand has made, and so all these things came to be, declares the LORD. But this is the one to whom I will look: he who is humble and contrite in spirit and trembles at my word.
