If you seek to be great, one tool that will take you there is humility but the problem is, the road to greatness is actually that road which sometime hides in disguise and is clothed with opportunities that only the mind that is humble can see through it.
In life, I must say we shouldn’t be in a haste nor seek to rush over everything that comes our way. Those that are in a haste if you watch closely are heading to nowhere. Life is a gradual process; you take it one step at a time or after the other. And what will give you the patience to go through its many huddles is the heart of humility.
It is a known fact that men who do not have patience are seemingly not humble. They want to rush everything at ones without taking the pains to understand the situation. You would hear them say, “I do not have patience for this or that”. Sincerely, this is a bad way to show the lapses within you without taking into consideration the fact that such is bad. At times, people seem to compare humility to laziness without realizing the inner joy that a man with a humble spirit radiates.
“Humility is not laziness, it is being yourself to attract the best all the time.”
When you are humble, you will seem to see everything in between the line. Nothing and I mean nothing can take a humble man unaware.
“People may say you are slow but they fail to see between the lines that hastiness is nothing but emptiness at the long run.”
Humility pays and it is what will define your person if you guide your heart with all diligence. It would be right to say that humility is an inheritance but you can also learn it. Learning it is through experience in life that might force you to become humble. Circumstances of life in many cases are what humble a man who seems to be arrogant. When a man is arrogant, people looks at him in another way. And the only time arrogance pays is when such a person suddenly realized that those who should naturally be around them are nowhere to be found because of their arrogant way of doing things. Such a person never radiates true love that draws people around him. He feels he know all but sincerely, he makes for himself more enemies than friends.
When a man is humble, he fears His Maker and would ever want to do His will no matter how inconvenience it is to him but that cannot be said of a man that is not humble. A men who seeks after the righteous of His Creator, would more than anything need this value called humility. It is what will guide you to the throne of grace which is accessed through the heart of humility. Proverbs [15:33KJV] said, “The fear of the LORD [is] the instruction of wisdom; and before honour [is] humility”. Truly, honour might only come when you are humble in place of authority.
“People want easy access to honour but without taking the pains to get the virtue of it.”
Humility is that virtue that brings honour. And what is life if we gain all and yet have no honour for all that we have gain. We should take a deep look around the people in our community and around the world. It is good that we study the life of those we know that seem to lack this virtue and those that have this virtue. Let us draw up our finding and make comparison between them all. If you are sincere with yourself, you will without the help of anyone discover which of the life to adopt at the long run either to be humble or to be arrogant.
Whatever you are seeking for, the fastest way to get it is to humble yourself. When you are humble, things comes to you easily. You don’t need to struggle for anything. Things comes to you in due time. All you need is to be yourself, walk diligently and with a smile that takes away complain you can have all that you desire when you hold on to the value of humility because life in itself answers to humility just like Proverbs [22:4 KJV] said, “By humility [and] the fear of the LORD [are] riches, and honour, and life”.
