God cares for the poor, the widow and the fatherless child. Scripture clearly shows He resides with the contrite and the broken. What do we find in all of these states? Humility.
A humble heart is a teachable one. Compassion abides deeply in the soul of humility. Empathy is an ever-present friend. Forgiveness is its strength. So contrary to pride and arrogance.
Sometimes it takes being broken to understand & expose the arrogance and pride within us. Sometimes it will take forgiving someone who has hurt you so unbearably or someone who may have cruelly cast you aside. Loss of a loved one teaches us how empty life is without meaningful relationships and love in our lives. Humility is never to be scoffed at as weak but the wise will embrace it and the beauty that flows from such a welcome is that you heal.
God loves us and the refining work He sometimes puts us through is so that we will become like Him. Humble, kind and forgiving.
Jesus invites us to come to him; to accept him as our Lord and Saviour. It’s an invitation to those who want to be like him and the result will be healing, spiritual health and eternal life.
God bless you x
