I Peter 5:5 (KJV) Young men, in the same way be submissive to those who are older. All of you clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.
Today’s Word Cup comes from a story I read in how parents must look for opportunities to teach their children:
I recently heard a story about a woman who invited guests to her home for dinner. As they sat to eat, the woman turned to her six-year-old daughter and said, “Sweetheart, would you like to ask the blessing?” The little girl replied sheepishly, “Yes, but I don’t know what to say.”
Mom spotted a teaching moment, and perhaps an opportunity to draw attention to her own piety. “Just say what you hear Mommy saying, dear,” she said. The counsel seemed to work. The little girl clasped her hands, bowed her head, and said, “Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?”
Life is a school for humility. And we dare not ignore the lessons. St. Augustine once said the three essential components of the Christian life are as follows: humility, humility, and humility.
