Micah 6:8, Philippians 2:3-17, Romans 13:1-7 & 14:1-23, I Peter 5:5-11

Today we build upon two weeks ago with the last part of Micah 6:8, And to walk humbly with your God.  Humility was shown in Christ's action.  You can't show humility in isolation. A quote from Conrad Kanagy; "I accept that I may be small in your eyes."  With humility it is OK if you don't see it my way.

Philippians 2:3-17:

Be careful of selfish ambitions.  Look out for others interest not just your own.  Christ is an example of humility, and as a result He has been and is highly exalted by God.  Be reminded of our need to follow His example.

Romans 14:1-23:

Be careful how you exercise yourself with regards to disputable matters.  We must careful in these matter about judging others.  Be careful about who you think is the weaker brother.  It is our responsibility to exercise love.
A very current  admonition given our present issue of wearing masks and COVID-19.

Romans 13:1-7:

This passage is a reminder to submit to governing authorities.  The implication is that they are supportive of good works.  If they are supportive of evil behavior that violates God's standard for the believer than we must obey God rather than man.  We are also reminder to pay taxes.  That is pretty clear.

I Peter 5:5-11:

Pride and humility are on opposite ends of the spectrum.  We have warnings about pride.  In God's value system for man, what appears to the world be the way down (humility) is the way up in God's eyes.
