Humility Is A Choice

Today’s Daily Devotion

By Khai Samante

After his resurrection, he appeared to his disciples by the Sea of Galilee and performed a miraculous catch of fish. When they landed, they saw a fire of burning coals there with fish on it, and some bread. Jesus had prepared breakfast for them! He invited them to come and eat, and he took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish.

Think about it: Jesus is the Son of God, the Lord of all creation, the Savior of the world. He had just conquered death and sin by his power and love. And yet, he chose to serve his followers in such a simple and practical way. He didn’t demand their worship or praise; he didn’t rebuke them for their doubts or failures; he didn’t ask them to do anything for him. Jesus just wanted to spend time with them and show them his care.

Humility isn’t a weakness; it’s a strength. It isn’t a gesture of low self- esteem; it’s a sign of high God- esteem. It isn’t a burden; it’s a blessing.

Humility is also a choice. We can choose to be humble or proud, to serve or to be served, to give or to take, to love or to hate.

As disciples of Jesus, we are called to imitate his humility. We are called to put others before ourselves, to serve without expecting anything in return, to love without conditions, to forgive without limits, to honor God above all.

When they got out on land, they saw a charcoal fire in place, with fish laid out on it, and bread.
John 21:9

Lord Jesus, thank you for your humility.
