The Bible is full of truth, and it is full of lessons we can learn from. No matter what situation we face in life we can turn to the pages of the Bible and someone in history has faced a similar situation, and God instructs them with such wisdom and clarity. Here are 3 Life Lessons that you can take from the bible.
Lesson 1: Walk Humbly
The first one comes from Micah, an Old Testament book in the Bible. Micah 6 verse 8 says, “…do what is right, love mercy, and walk humbly with the Lord.”
Arrogance and selfishness are not virtues of a faithful heart. When we are humble and walk humbly we become more approachable and people are more likely to trust us with positions of leadership or management.
Lesson 2: Trust in the Lord
Proverbs 3 verse 5 says, “ Trust in the Lord with all your heart, do not depend on your own understanding.”
When life doesn’t make sense what we understand of it doesn’t come close to the glory that God is working out of it. God always has a bigger plan. So trust in Him, and His plan. This will bring you far more peace then trying to figure life out on your own and worrying about your circumstances.
Lesson 3: Be Generous
Have you every done something kind for someone who couldn’t pay you back? How did you feel? We have been wired for generosity but unfortunately the world has taught us to save, invest, store. Now don’t get me wrong those all have their place, but where in our financial plan have we made room for giving? Where in our daily lives have we made room for generosity? This doesn’t just have to be financial giving. You can give of your time, your skills, your wisdom. Whatever way you can be generous, go ahead and do it freely. Life makes a lot more sense when we are living generously, as a blessing to others.
3 Life Lessons that can make such a difference to our lives. May you find many more as you read the Bible and the truth that God uses to set us free.
