Friday, October 7

Think so as to have a sound mind.—Rom. 12:3.


We need to cultivate humility because those who are proud do not have “a sound mind.” Proud people are contentious and egotistical. Their thinking and actions often cause them to hurt themselves and others. Unless they change their way of thinking, their minds will be blinded and corrupted by Satan. (2 Cor. 4:4; 11:3) A humble person has a sound mind. He has a balanced and reasonable view of himself, recognizing that in many ways others are superior to him. (Phil. 2:3) And he knows that “God opposes the haughty ones, but he gives undeserved kindness to the humble ones.” (1 Pet. 5:5) Those with a sound mind do not want to have Jehovah as an opponent. To remain humble, we must apply the Bible’s counsel to “strip off the old personality with its practices, and clothe [ourselves] with the new personality.” We need to study Jesus’ example and try to imitate him as closely as possible.—Col. 3:9, 10; 1 Pet. 2:21. w20.077 ¶16-17


You can't walk with God while holding hands with the Devil.

“Jehovah is high, and yet the humble one he sees; but the lofty one he knows only from a distance.” (Psalm 138:6; 1 Peter 5:5, 6) What God expects of his servants is evident from this question, posed at Micah 6:8: “What is Jehovah asking back from you but to exercise justice and to love kindness and to be modest in walking with your God?”  w91 7/1 5
