He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble his way. (Psalm 25:9 NRSV Bible)

I remember a story of a Texas man who was bragging on the "bigness" of everything in Texas. He was surprised when an "Okie" stepped up and agreed with him. "Yes", said the Okie, "that's right, everything's big in Texas! Why, I once knew a Texan who was so big they couldn't find a coffin big enough to bury him in when he died. "And what did they do?" asked the surprised Texan. "Well," came the answer, "they just let the air out of him, and buried him in a shoe box!"

Being humble puts us in our place and, at times, may cause us some pain. But being humble also puts God first and helps us receive eternal life.

Dear God, remind me daily of the great gift of humility. In Jesus name, Amen.
