In a world obsessed with individual accomplishments and the pursuit of personal glory, the concept of humility is frequently overlooked. We are inundated with stories of extraordinary human achievements, ranging from groundbreaking inventions to remarkable artistic masterpieces. Yet, in the midst of the celebration of these accomplishments, there is an important aspect that often goes unnoticed: the humble recognition that these achievements are not solely the result of human prowess, but are intertwined with divine guidance and grace. Embracing humility means admitting that our talents and abilities are gifts from God, and that we can only achieve greatness with His help.
Returning the glory to God for outstanding human accomplishments requires a shift in perspective. Instead of attributing all the credit to ourselves, we humbly acknowledge God’s role as the ultimate source of wisdom, inspiration, and enablement. You should draw inspiration from the life of Mother Teresa, whose selfless devotion to serving the poor and marginalized earned her worldwide acclaim. Despite her noble efforts, she humbly stated, “I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world.” Her humble obedience allowed God to work through her, impacting countless lives.
If you are serious about your divine assignment to keep an eye on your world and steer it in the direction God desires, you must remain humble. Accepting humility in our accomplishments allows us to keep a grounded perspective, foster gratitude, and avoid the pitfalls of pride and self-centeredness. Humility allows for continuous growth and learning as we remain open to God’s leading and seek His wisdom in all we do. It is a transformative mindset that allows you to have a closer relationship with God and use your achievements to bring glory to His name. Our efforts are for the betterment of mankind and the greater glory of God.
