The Grove Word Prompt: Humility

Do you wish to rise?

Begin by descending.

You plan a tower that will pierce the clouds?

Lay first the foundation of humility.

St. Augustine

In the strange mystery of the Kingdom, the first must become last and in bowing we find our true home. Jesus, who reigned with the Father in splendor, emptied it all and provided the very best example of humility. When everything in us rebels against the boundaries of holiness, we look to Him as He tenderly points out our pride and gives us another chance.

Join us this week in the comments and at The Grove as we get real about the life lessons that have come through the Father’s humbling. Share your pictures of both the humorous and serious humbling that happens this week with the Instagram hashtag #VelvetAshesHumility.
