A Kingdom Leader has a balanced view of the issues of our world and the unseen spiritual world. Humility is the foundation of that balance.
Do you mock and laugh at situations that present themselves each day? Abraham and Sarah laughed at God when he announced the future birth of their son. Jesus was laughed at when he announced that the dead girl was only sleeping.
There is a time for laughter! The balanced leader can laugh at himself because he recognizes his dependence on God the Father. He can see the gap between his knowledge and his understanding!
Ecclesiastes 3:4 (NKJV)
A time to weep, And a time to laugh; A time to mourn, And a time to dance
Humility is the disposition of valuing or assessing oneself appropriately. It is very clear that without Christ we can do nothing! We need Him every hour.
Encourage others as you walk through your day.
