Time To Dress Up
“…and be clothed with humility, for “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.” 1 Peter 5:5, NKJV
Spiritual clothing can be just as important as the physical clothes we wear today. It is our spiritual clothes that God sees. We can dress up for God or unfortunately we can dress down for God.
Dressing up for God will be the putting on of humility.
Our scripture for today tells us what God thinks of pride in a person’s heart. Not much to put it bluntly. In fact He will resist the works of a person who takes pride in himself.
Likewise He will extend grace to the person who is truly humble. Even humility has its own temptations.
A man, who is flattering himself that he is humble and is walking close to the Master, is deceiving himself. Humility consists not in thinking humbly of ourselves, but in not thinking of ourselves at all.
Humility and pride both catch the attention of God. He frowns heavily upon pride but He smiles greatly upon humility.
Dress up for God and don’t forget to put your humility on.
