For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.
I see it this way; the way up is down. If we want to do great things in God’s kingdom then we must humble ourselves and spend much time in prayer. God always gets the credit for our positions in high places. We become nothing and God becomes everything. When men praise us for our accomplishments we always say thank you to them and then we give the glory to God for allowing us to be a blessing to others.
