He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he.”

Deuteronomy 32:4

So being strict, offended, and defensive all the time is not humility, it’s shame. And shame is ruining your relationship with God and ruining your relationship with the people that matter most in your life. The way that we get rid of shame is through humility. Being humble means that you allow others to see your imperfections, that you listen to critique, that you work hard, and you want to see others succeed, too. Humility, in a Christian way, looks to lift others up, and see others succeed, and cheer others on. And as you do that, God’s going to cheer you on and make you succeed. It doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do great things; you should do great things. That’s faith. We live and walk by faith and we aspire. You can still have big dreams and big visions, and you can be bold and you can be loud and funny and still be humble because humility is about being truly you. We can allow God to be our defender, and we don’t need to do it ourselves.


Lord, help me be myself. Thank you for being my defender so I don’t have to.


Do you feel comfortable being your true self around other people?
