What attitude (s) to adopt in the face of humiliation? (GC 30)
- HEARTs SteemChurch
Dear Steemchurch family, I think that the first thing to keep in mind is that we will all go through moments of humiliation. It is unavoidable. That is why you must be equipped to overcome these moments.
If you face humiliation, you must admit your mistakes and repent. Repentance must be made before the Lord and before the person concerned. Ask forgiveness of people who have been affected by your fault, even if the person misbehaves with you.
If, on the other hand, you are going through unfair humiliation, then know that the Lord understands your pain and your pain. We all have in us a burning desire for justice.
And what attitude (s) do you adopt in the face of humiliation?
Laughter. Honesty. Humiliation often comes with an error. Take ownership of the error and apologising allows you to move on - as does repentance. Good question.
The scriptures has a beautiful answer to this question.
Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues; And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. Matthew 10:16-19 (KJV)
I prefer to stay with this word from the master.
Thanks for that beautiful question.
Humility. i think humility should be the attitude inorder that God will lift the person. At times, humiliation does not come be because one is at fault. most times, it's as a result of out right hatred for the person being humiliated. In such instance, retaliation should not come in, if you want God to act for you.
