Being great in the eyes of men is much
different than being great in the eyes
of God, for the requirement is humility.
He has told you, O Man, what is good;
And what does the Lord require of you
But to do justice, to love kindness,
And to walk humbly with your God.
"For My hand made all these things,
Thus, all these things came into being,"
declares, the Lord.
But to this one I will look, to him who
is humble and contrite of spirit,
and who trembles at My word.
Sitting down, He called the twelve and said to them,
"If anyone wants to be first, he shall be last of all
and servant of all."
But He gives a greater grace. Therefore it says,
"God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble."
Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand
of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time.
I Peter 5:6
