This doesn’t mean that following Him where He wants us to go – which many times is not the place I want to go – it’s easy or painless. He has the tendency of going to places that expose my heart. But there is freedom in this humility produced by His Beauty: I’m free from the pressure of performance, of being always concerned about delivering, of the constant pull to be authentic in a way I am not.

He leads and equips. I follow. There is freedom.
What about you? What’s your biggest challenge with humility? What is its biggest benefit, for you?
