Be Humble

Recall when Our Savior humbled himself

And showed his love and heart of forgiveness

By washing his disciple’s feet by hand

Who can turn away from all wealth,

And who can turn away from all power,

So that he could show his love to his people?

That is the love of Jesus Christ

That is the value of a humble heart

So take not the high spot in your affairs

Rather, take the low spot without fear

For this reflects your heart to God

And do not walk about in an overbearing way

Do not be pretentious or egotistical

But let yourself appear as less than others

The humble cannot possibly stand before God

For they consider themselves unworthy and incapable

Yet God is completely capable and always wins
