Humility and Wisdom

Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another . . . Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion. (Romans 12:10,16 NKJV)

At every turn is the humble person who is my neighbor. The slow driver in the fast lane. My three year-old. The other person in the discussion who just doesn’t get it (maybe even my spouse). I’d rather be kind or give preference or not be wise with an exalted person. I’d rather think about high things than about the dishes, about the six year-old’s tenth drawing today, about the ramblings of another. If I aspire to be a great Christian I’ll be like Christ, giving preference to even the humble. If I aspire to wisdom I’ll think on the simple things.

Jesus, please help me be more like You today.
