To think you are not what God says you are, or to think you are less than He says is not humility or modesty, but is actually a form of arrogance. It is you saying that you are right and God is wrong.
“Who is more likely to be right, the voice that speaks for the Creator of all things, Who knows all things exactly as they are, or a distorted image of yourself, confused, bewildered, inconsistent and unsure of everything?” To say you are not what he says is not humility of any kind, except for perhaps a false humility. Like it or not, every person has at least important part to play, no matter how small they may consider it to be. If you learn to follow his voice you can be important. Never forget that the small details are just as important as the big picture. Someone needs to help with all things, both small and large. It is not up to us to decide or determine what is important, what is big and what is small.”
