Life in the Spirit – Humility
Mark 2:13-17  Once again Jesus went out beside the lake. A large crowd came to him, and he began to teach them. As he walked along, he saw Levi son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax collector’s booth. “Follow me,” Jesus told him, and Levi got up and followed him.
While Jesus was having dinner at Levi’s house, many tax collectors and sinners were eating with him and his disciples, for there were many who followed him. When the teachers of the law who were Pharisees saw him eating with the sinners and tax collectors, they asked his disciples: “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?”
On hearing this, Jesus said to them, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
As we go about our daily business, we will encounter people who are ready to respond to the gospel. God will give you insight in those situations as to when to speak and what to say. Our humility before God and others will be one of the things that people notice and respond to; that’s when we’ll see God act in others’ lives, and in ours.
