"The Lord is high above all nations, His glory above the heavens. Who is like the Lord our God, who dwells on high, who humbles Himself to behold the things that are in the heavens and in the earth?" - Psalm 113 V4, 5

"And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross." -Philippians 2 V8

Christians should learn humility from our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Now Jesus Christ "who being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men." Philippians 2 V6, 7. The rules of God and His kingdom are different than the way man sees. We will be considered rich in heaven when we humble ourselves and serve others like Jesus served while He was on the earth in the form of a man. Our Lord is above all nations and all heavens and yet He is humble enough to be reached through a prayer.

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
