I Peter 5:5 ” All of you, clothe yourselves with humility towards one another…”

We are to cover ourselves with humility such that others only see Jesus. Being humble means submission to one another out of reverence to God…of voluntarily yielding our needs and desires in order to serve others. The humility talked about here comes from the deep realization of our own unworthiness in the face of God’s love, grace, and gift of salvation. For we’re just like a beggar, no better off than another, except that we’ve found some bread. Peter drove home this point when he wrote, “All of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble.” (I Peter 3:8) Remember, we’re simply beggars telling other beggars where they can find bread.
