    1 Peter chp 5. Verse 1 thur 7

    What do you find the most difficult to practice?
  • Charles Robert Northup - in Reply on 1 Peter 5
    Humility being humble it sounds simple, but ego makes it hard, but honestly most do none anymore. The church has become worldly, and we tend to do as they do more then what God says.

    Hi Sandra.

    I misread your question originally,

    That is a great question!! Here's a few verses out those mentioned I believe to be shown the toughest.

    1 Peter 5:2-3, 5-6.

    V2 ) Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;

    V 3 ) Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.

    Vs 5)Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.

    V 6) Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

    HUMILITY AND MEEKNESS.

    A lesson the Lord taught Peter in

    John 13:4-8.

    How do you expresses this and be truthful when someone is taken in a fault?

    Example: Galatians 6:1-3. Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual,

    RESTORE SUCH AN ONE IN THE SPIRIT OF MEEKNESS; "CONSIDERING THYSELF", lest thou also be tempted.

    Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

    For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.

    Here's several issues come to mind in the verses you mentioned.

    1). Humility: In ethics, freedom from pride and arrogance humbleness of mind a modest estimate of one's own worth. In theology, humility consists in lowliness of mind a deep sense of one's own unworthiness in the sight of God, self-abasement, penitence for sin, and submission to the divine will.

    A prideful person wants praise and God's glory for himself. How do you restore that person in meekness without backlash? By not telling them the truth or just ignore them even if they're leading people Astray?

    We all have had faults and still do, but we must be truthful and meekness in our approach while considering ourselves.

    I believe this is where we worship in spirit and in truth. John 4:24.

    God bless.
