James 4:10 Be humble before the Lord, and he will make you great.

We Are All Different

We each have that one person in our lives who drives us completely potty. You know … that one person who, the moment you lay eyes on them or hear their voice … the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.

One of the things that I love about life is that we’re all different. And yet one of the most frustrating things in life is that … we’re all different. And isn’t it amazing how those differences can drive us nuts?

A couple gets married. He squeezes the toothpaste at the bottom but she squeezes the toothpaste at the top. He hangs the toilet paper so that the sheet falls over the front. She hangs it so that the sheet comes out the back. He loves cars. She loves shoes. And then there’s everybody else. They’re enough to drive you completely crazy!

But why do we allow other people’s differences to annoy us?

Maybe it’s because we each see ourselves as being at the top of the heap. So, if I have myself up there at the top of my heap … well, you simply don’t measure up. So at the heart of it, it’s a pride thing.

James 4:10 Be humble before the Lord, and he will make you great.

That piece of wisdom from God turns everything on its head, doesn’t it? But then again, that’s so often the way it is. The wisdom of God generally runs 180 degrees in the opposite direction to the so-called wisdom of this world.

Humility … a funny thing happens when we choose to humble ourselves – and make no mistake, humility is a deliberate choice.

All of a sudden, other people’s weaknesses don’t seem to annoy us quite so much. All of a sudden those differences become valuable.

Be humble before the Lord, and he will make you great.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
