The reward of humility [that is, having a realistic view of one’s importance] and the [reverent, worshipful] fear of the Lord Is riches, honour, and life. Proverbs 22:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version
“Humility is described in the dictionary as: the absence of any feelings of being better than others or lower than others and reverence is profound adoring awed respect
Only the humble can approach Jehovah’s holy throne because they know that they are not greater than Him. They know they need to depend upon Him and be respectful and obedient towards Him.
In return Jehovah blesses them with spiritual riches beyond imagination and nothing can compare to them, especially the Divine love Jehovah bountifully blesses them with every day.
We worship Jehovah because of His numerous blessings of love, joy, peace, comfort, strength and protection He daily blesses us with as well as His amazing friendship.
Honour is described as faithfulness to high moral standards and no one has as high a moral standard as Jehovah. This is a blessing because we avoid many destructive lifestyle choices that only bring ruin, pain and shame to those who live a dishonourable life. It is also described as an asset that brings praise.
Angles shall greet those of Godly honour with songs of praise as they enter into Heavens gate.
And finally it is something given in recognition of achievement and Christ shall honour us with a crown upon our heads when He greets us in Heaven.
Heaven is full of the humble, Hell is full of proud. Joseph a son of Jehovah
“Humility is the Christian’s greatest honour; the higher men climb, the farther they are from heaven.” Burder
Of course the life is not just an eternal one in Heaven but also one of great oneness of walking daily in communion with Christ which is the greatest life of all.
Prayer: Thank you Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with the Divine wisdom You have bestowed upon me to be a humble honourable child of my Beloved Father in Heaven. I exalt You in the name of His most honorable, humble child Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
