It's Not About Me

Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. James 4:10
One of my favorite movies with a message based on a true story is 'When the Game Stands Tall' the 2014 Hollywood movie about a California High School football team that was undefeated for 151 games then lost. The overlying theme of the movie is to remember it is not about the individual but about the team and not about winning necessarily. If you get a chance find it and watch it. You don't have to be a sports fanatic to enjoy it.

When it comes to anything in life the humble people are the ones who are more enjoyable to be around. Not the ones who gloat all the time. The coach in this movie had a chance to go coach at Stanford but he chose a lower salary and the joy of working with the high school players to build Godly character into their lives. Being humble is truly what God wants us to do. 
Are you able to die to self and truly put others best interests before your own? 
PRAYER: Thanks Lord Jesus for your example of being humble servant. I choose to make that my aim in life. In Jesus' name. Amen.
