Humility and the Fear of the Lord...

"Humility and the fear of the Lord brings wealth and honor and life" (Proverbs 22:4).

Have you ever noticed that you can't be on the internet for too long without seeing a popup telling how you can make millions of dollars without ever even leaving the comfort of your own home. There are so many that think they've got it all figured out. There are so many books, CD's, DVD;s, motivational speakers, and infomercials that proclaim they know the truths and secrets that lead to happiness.

The truth is simple: to get anything of great value starts with God. We humble our whole selves to Him - standing in HIS presence with a sense of awe that is overwhelming, because we begin to realize who He really is. He is God. There is none like Him. Keeping that attitude will lead us to true wealth, great honor, and refreshed strength.

We have to remember that we can't full attain the 2nd part without committing to pursue the 1st part. Humility must be a defining factor of our lives. We have don't have to push any plan or strive for anyone's good opinion or fight to be right. We must choose to meek, to always seek a greater awareness of how great, awesome and powerful our God is. When we truly that that in, humility becomes our only option with great promise!
