Exalted in Humility
1 Peter 5:5-7
Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for "God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble."  Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. 
One of the most significant marks of Christian maturity is humility.  Therefore, humility is one of the things most needed in times of trouble—which is what Peter's readers found themselves in.  We began looking at this last week as the proper response to godly eldering (5:5).  This morning we'll consider humility from a broader perspective as we look at (1) what humility is, (2) what it is not, (3) where it comes from, and (4) what it does.  In so doing, I think it will become plain that humility is necessary if we are to honor God, especially when life is hard. With that, let's pray that God would make us humble.
