READ: Genesis 24:1-10
“Better is a poor and a wise child than an old and foolish king, who will no more be admonished.” - Ecclesiastes 4:13
Without being humble, you cannot be trained – disciplined or instructed to perform certain tasks or tricks for your master. The fact that someone cannot modify your thoughts, behaviour and habits is an indication of your “bigness” and pride. To be trained means to be pruned, drilled and bent until you are in the desired shape and condition for your master.
When people come to work in a new place, they have to be trained or re-trained. If they feel too big they are often untrainable. They cannot be bent and pruned for their new jobs.
If you want to live a humble life, according to the teachings of Jesus Christ, you must decide to allow yourself to be trained and disciplined to do tasks and tricks for your master. The ability to learn how to behave at work is a sign of humility. The ability to imbibe new things and totally modify your lifestyle is an indication of your humility.
Humility is the key to entering new doors in the kingdom. Many pastors are cut out of new areas of ministry because they are untrainable in new things.
Start your day with a blessing from the WORD!!!
STAY CONNECTED AND PROSPER.
