      Serving the Lord with all humility of mind, and with many tears, and temptations, which befell me by the lying in wait of the Jews. Acts 20:17

      Do you know what a good leader does? The best leaders are always those who have humility of mind. They are very strong-minded, yet, on the other hand, they know how to submit their minds to new ideas that did not come from them. They know how to bow their minds so that other information can come from other people, giving them the credit for it.

      Humility is what you must have if you are going to succeed, not just in the ministry, but also in life. Listen to what the Apostle Paul had to say. He said, “You know how I have served you. I have served you with humility of mind. I have not allowed myself to become arrogant of mind, even when it came to the so-called ‘religious’ things of God.”

      In other words, he bowed his mind to the will of the Holy Ghost. He learned the ways and practices of the Holy Ghost regarding his brethren and he served them with humility of mind.

      If you have humility of mind, you can serve one another. But you cannot serve if you have an arrogant mind. One reason why some people do not serve in the church is that they are high minded.

      First Corinthians 1, verse 10 tells us to speak the same thing and be perfectly joined together with the same mind. So, when we do this, we come to the same judgment because it is all based on one thing—the Word of God.

      We should all speak the same thing in accordance with the Word of God. Our brother should be able to tell us, “Brother, that is not the Word. What are you doing? The Word of God says such and such.” And our response should not be, “Mind your own business.” No, humility says, “You are my brother. You love me. You want to see me grow.”

      You see, that is how iron sharpens iron. When all of us are like minded and speak the same thing, serving one another in love, then all of us will get God’s results and grow in the things of God.

      Scripture Of The Day: “Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.” 1 Corinthians 1:10v. NKJV
