1 Peter 5:5-7


Humility is an asset for competitors. When we are humble, we learn faster and are more coachable.

How do you define humility? Humility is not the opposite of strength because it requires active spiritual and mental muscles to humble ourselves. Humility also isn’t thinking little of ourselves. While the world sends a message about elevating yourself over others, His gospel reminds us that the most righteous path comes from elevating Him.

1. How do you humble yourself before Him?

2. What have you learned from having Christ as your coach?

In Scripture, we are taught about the blessings of humility. In James 3:13, we learn that we gain more wisdom and understanding from being humble. And in Psalms 25:8-9, it says that the Lord “guides” the humble.

Additionally, Scripture teaches us that humility is an attribute of God’s chosen people. In Colossians 3:12, it reads, “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.”

And what happens when we elevate Him? Psalms 37:4 gives us some insight there, “Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” Quite the promise.


1- How much do you think about yourself and the way you are perceived?
2- How often do you compare yourself to others?
3- Spend 5 minutes listing the ways God has shown His power in your life.
