The epitome of an exceptional athlete is one who consistently strives to enhance their performance through hard work and dedication. This individual possesses a coachable mindset, regardless of their prior achievements, realizing that progress stems from humility and a willingness to learn. By avoiding arrogance and embracing a teachable spirit, they recognize that success extends beyond mere talent or accomplishments.
As believers, we humbly embrace our role as servants of God, understanding the weight and significance it carries in our lives. This position is not taken lightly but rather approached with reverence, gratitude, and a deep sense of responsibility.
But what does it mean to have humility? Humility, as defined in the Bible, is a virtuous quality that encompasses a modest and unassuming attitude towards oneself and a profound acknowledgment of our reliance on God.
Humility opens the door for effective learning and a deeper comprehension of God’s purpose for our lives. By embracing humility, we position ourselves to receive knowledge and insights that enable us to grasp God’s divine plan with greater clarity and wisdom.
Throughout the Bible, God chooses people to represent Him that are humble. Numbers mentions how Moses despite his position as leader of the Israelites, was the most humble man on earth.
David, who eventually became King of Israel, was only a mere shepherd boy when he defeated the Philistine Goliath. Psalm 78:70-72 says, “He chose David his servant and took him from the sheep pens; from tending the sheep he brought him to be the shepherd of his people Jacob, of Israel his inheritance. And David shepherded them with integrity of heart; with skillful hands he led them.”
