34/49: Relational Humility

Matthew 5:2-12 ESV  And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying:  (3)  “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.  (4)  “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.  (5)  “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.  (6)  “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.  (7)  “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.  (8)  “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.  (9)  “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.  (10)  “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.  (11)  “Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.  (12)  Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Within humility lies bonding agents that create how humans emotionally approach life in general. We complain, or we are grateful. We have pride, or we are humbled. At any given moment, any lies humility has bonded to will reflect in our behaviors and visa-versa with truths.

Ask yourself: Can I attach to gratitude as a habit? Can I let past hurts / experiences go that keep me from being thankful?

Today- Leaving nothing aside, be grateful for the duration of the entire day. In ALL things – find gratitude.
