But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant. And whosoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.
Matthew 23:11-12 (NKJV)
God’s ways are in direct opposition to the ways of the world. And so the kingdom path to success begins with humility. In all that we are called to do we never seek to exalt ourselves, but much rather are we to realize that we have been simply called to serve. Maintaining this servant attitude assures we do not lose perspective, and God has promised that those who set their hearts to follow His ways, in due time, will be exalted.
