Psalm 113:5-6 (NKJV)
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?

Who is like the Lord? NONE. Noone is as powerful or merciful or mighty or loving... or just... or... the list goes on. And yet He is humble? How can someone so powerful be humble enough to kneel before a mere human and wash their feet (John 13:5-10)?

So many people think that God doesn't listen to them when they speak to Him. That He isn't watching their every move at every moment. That He doesn't hear what is in their hearts. But He does. He spent 42 chapters in the book of Job listening to Job and answering him. Jesus, the Son of God, spent many years on earth healing people and teaching them how to live life to the fullest. Jesus, the only Son of God, died on a cross... the same way common thieves and murderers did. If that isn't humility, i don't know what is.

If Jesus can lower Himself to listen to our every word, to number every hair on our heads (Matt. 10:30), to live among mere humans and love us, how much more should we humble ourselves to love other people? Can we say that we are better than others? Can we say that other people don't deserve things that we can do for them? Should we be able to look someone in the eyes and say "I hate you", when God is sitting on His throne and saying, "I LOVE YOU"....?
