True Humility Rewarded
He that humbleth himself shall be exalted. (Luke 18:14)
It ought not to be difficult for us to humble ourselves, for what have we to be proud of? We ought to
take the lowest place without being told to do so. If we are sensible and honest, we shall be little in
our own eyes. Especially before the Lord in prayer, we shall shrink to nothing. There we cannot speak
of merit, for we have none; our one and the only appeal must be to mercy: “God be merciful to me a
Here is a cheering word from the throne. We shall be exalted by the Lord if we humble ourselves. For
us the way upward is downhill. When we are stripped of self we are clothed with humility, and this is
the best of wear. The Lord will exalt us in peace and happiness of mind; He will exalt us into
the knowledge of His Word and fellowship with Himself; He will exalt us in the enjoyment of sure pardon
and justification. The Lord puts His honor upon those who can wear them to the honor of the Giver.
He gives usefulness, acceptance, and influence to those who will not be puffed up by them but will be
abased by a sense of greater responsibility. Neither God nor man will care to lift up a man who lifts up
himself, but both God and good men unite to honor modest worth.
O Lord, sink me in self that I may rise in Thee.
