Bound: Purpose: Prayers and Poetry

Philippians 2: 8-9, “And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name.”

Bound

Humility and obedience seem to be two characteristics we try the most to avoid. We see them as qualities that are ineffective, weak, and degrading.

Yet, the Lord went willingly to the highest end of humility by going into the deepest submission for all of us.

We, instead, often resist even minor acts of humility with a self-centered resistance. And when we do commit to humility and obedience outwardly, too often our attitude and our hearts are loudly complaining—creating even more tension and sometimes anger.

Lord, even though none of us can ever reach the level of Your heart, please soften each of us to be Your servants with Your obedience.

Your thoughts,
