The Humility of Prayer

Matthew 10: 24 The Humility of Prayer

Matthew 10: 24 “A disciple is not above the teacher nor a servant above the master; 25 it is enough for the disciple to be like the teacher and the servant like the master…

Over 300 years ago, the English poet and essayist Alexander Pope wrote “fools rush in where angels fear to tread.” the point was that egoistic and impulsive people tend to rush into situations that wiser folks consider more carefully. With humility comes the ability to see things from different points of view. Jesus looked at everything from His Abba’s point of view. Our own assessments are not particularly trustworthy, which is why, among other reasons, we’ve been given the Holy Spirit, as both a check on our own unwarranted confidence in ourselves and a nudge in the right direction. Stop, look to the Spirit, and listen for wiser counsel from above.
