Jesus said in Matthew 11:29 “Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and ye shall find rest unto your souls.” It is one of the only places he explicitly states His own character traits. Shouldn’t we take that seriously? That we also should be meek and humble, as Jesus was? That we should extend hospitality and kindness to others, as Jesus did? I believe we can achieve nothing genuine without those two traits, just as without love works and faith are dead.
Lord make us meek. Lord make us humble. Jesus give us hearts like Yours. We want to love people as You love people. We want to love You as You loved us. Give us Your meekness.
Let us go lower still.
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.Galatians 5: 13 (via aliyah-7)
We find no peace for our weary bones unless we cling to the word of grace.Martin Luther (via awelltraveledwoman)
