I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. When you think of the Apostle Peter, you don't often think of humility. Brazen, outspoken, brash, always acting on impulse. But in his first epistle, Peter wrote a lot about humility. He says, "Clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble." That’s quite a statement from a guy who, earlier on, had stuck his foot in his mouth so many times. But perhaps Peter was remembering Jesus on the night of his betrayal when he wrapped a towel around his waist and kneeled to wash the filthy feet of his friends. Peter loudly protested, but the Lord was giving Peter an example to follow, a lesson in humility, one that Peter needed to learn. So friend, don't be too proud today to get on your knees and humbly serve someone more lowly than yourself. It's what Peter; rather, it's what Jesus would have you do.
