Identity 5

Psa 8: 4-5
What is man that You are mindful of him and the son of man that You care for him? Yet You have made him but a little lower than God, and You have crowned him with glory and honor.

The bible helps us to understand that everything was made through Jesus and without him was nothing made that exists.

This includes us, our talents, gifts and the abilities that God has bestowed on us. Everything good that we have has been given to us by our heavenly father.

We did not earn our abilities and talent just as we do not earn our skin our eye color. This reality helps us not to think of ourselves better than anyone else as without God, we wouldnt have them.

God exhalts the humble and brings down the proud. On the other hand, humility does not mean we look down on ourselves or consider ourselves less than how God sees us.

As long as we acknowledge God as our head and source and not belittle anyone else, we are good to go 🙂
