Father, how we thank You for the wonderful example of true humility that is seen in the life and ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who despite being God incarnate, lived His life in humble submission to You, learning to be both submissive and obedient by the things that He suffered.
Thank You, Lord, that in union with Christ we have the mind of Christ, as we also submit to the leading and guiding of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
Help me to develop the beautiful spiritual fruit of humility that is so important in the lives of all Your children, if we are to grow in grace and to mature into a deeper knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Lord Jesus.
Help me not to do anything out of selfish ambition or foolish vanity, but rather may I develop the godly grace to regard the needs and desires of others as being more important than my own. Teach me I pray, to live as Christ lived, in the power of the Spirit and to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name I pray,
