Be humble- like Christ

The greatest among you shall be your servant. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted. —Matthew 23:11-12 ESV

J. C. Ryle comments:

The example of our blessed Lord, the direct command of the apostolic Epistles, both alike require us to be “clothed with humility.” (1 Peter 5:5.) Let us seek that blessed grace day by day.

  • No grace is so beautiful, however much despised by the world.
  • No grace is such an evidence of saving faith, and true conversion to God.
  • No grace is so often commended by our Lord.

Of all His sayings, hardly any is so often repeated as that which concludes the passage we have now read, “Whoever humbles himself will be exalted.”
