Stay Humble in the Lord

In a world that celebrates pride and personal accomplishments, it's easy to forget that God expects us to stay humble in the Lord. I hope this lighthearted post will make you smile as we are reminded, "It's easy to stay humble in the Lord when..."




Just for fun! Can you relate to any of these?


It's Easy to Stay Humble in the Lord When...

Concluding Thoughts


The "world" has gone "all in" on celebrating pride in its many forms. God's expectation that we stay humble in the Lord is overlooked by all but a remnant of true believers.


But those who believe and take a knee in humble submission can be assured that God has a sense of humor with us. After all, He calls us "friends" (see John 15:15).


Finally, I want you to know I am "old school" and slow to adopt new technology. I believe in using humbly the talents God has given me. This means I avoid AI-generated content like a clown avoids a serious conversation.


However, I made an exception for this post. I was curious about what AI would generate. It made me smile. I pray it made you smile and gently reminded you to stay humble in the Lord.


P.S. Show the world you are part of the Fellowship of the Unashamed with one of our custom Christian t-shirts. Thanks in advance for your support of Off the Bench Ministries! May God bless you and yours!
