On being humble

“The eye cannot say to the hand, ‘I don’t need you!’ And the head cannot say to the feet, ‘I don’t need you!’” 1 Corinthians 12:21

In the song, Brother let me be your servant by Richard Gillardone of the most challenging thoughts is that I also need to allow other people to serve me. It is easier to give help than to admit to being in need of it.

Naaman is a man who learnt to be humble and ask for help. In 2 Kings 5:1-14 we find that Naaman was commander of King Aram’s army, a great man and highly regarded but he had leprosy. Naaman accepted the advice of a young servant girl and travelled to Israel. But when he gets to Israel instead of seeing the king, he is sent to the prophet Elisha but he doesn’t see him either. He receives a message from Elisha’s servant to wash in the local river. Naaman’s first reaction is to go into a rage but fortunately Naaman’s servants convinced him to do as he was instructed. Because Naaman, in spite of his natural inclinations, was humble and accepted advice from others he was blessed with healing.

Paul tells us that we are the Body of Christ. There are many parts but one body and each part needs the others. So while Jesus is our Source, people are resources, not to be relied on, but there so we can help each other.
