Gentle and humble
Did you know that the only time Jesus described himself personally he used two words “gentle” and “humble”? When he told people to follow him because he is gentle and humble :
Matt 11 – 28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
He could have said “ I am wonderful and outstanding” or anything like that, but he said instead that he is ‘gentle and humble’ for those who would follow him.
The question then is am I known as a gentle and humble person? If I am a follower of Christ I take on some of the characteristics and spirit of Christ.
Those two qualities reflect the spirit of Christ – do you?
