As humans, particularly Christians, it is important for us to shun the spirit of pride and adopt humility. God loves a humble heart, he exalts the humble and brings down the proud.


God would not share His glory with anyone. A proud man will put himself in the place of a god, and God will never compete for position with any man. Even Christ Jesus was submissive to the father to the end. What God demands from us is complete obedience to His will and instruction. He is the controller of our life and He always wants to be in charge. When a man is humble, he learns to obey God even when the instruction is not palatable.

He was, however, advised by his stewards to do whatever the man of God had instructed him to do. And after bathing in Jordan, Naaman’s leprosy was healed completely.
