Humility || 🌳 Observe a tree, how it first tends downwards to fasten its roots low in the ground, so that it may send forth its shoot upwards towards heaven. Is it not from humility that it endeavors to rise? But without humility it will not attain to higher things. Wanting to grow up into the air without a root - such is not growth, but a collapse.
This passage in the church's monthly publication tugged at me today. An example from pure nature how humility and lowliness are essential to help us grow and remain firm. Let us remind ourselves to be humble before God and before others; as the old saying goes, pride comes before a fall.
Happy blessed Sunday! 🌲
