I'm humbled this morning. I went to sleep with a heavy heart... politics has people in a bit of an uproar and challenging a Christian on politics can get so ugly. I'm refraining, but seem to be catching a lot of flack for asking questions and educating myself instead of 'naturally', as a Christian, subscribing to the Republican party. I have never once claimed to know anything about politics, but when I don't join in on the debates or bash Obama with the 'Christians' on Facebook, I'm instantly labeled a liberal! I don't have anything against any of the parties. I just haven't picked one and would rather people don't assume I'm this or that without asking me. I really don't like segregation anyhow, and the parties really don't interest me. Again, I don't know ANYTHING about politics.
Back to being humbled... I woke up feeling that I had represented Christ. I remained peaceful and never slighted anyone - though I was slighted, assumed of and misrepresented. I am not 'proud', I'm just grateful that Christ has renewed my mind and I generally don't feel a need to 'one up' anyone.
I'm also humbled because I realize I don't know everything. I'm honored to be a part of the Bride of Christ, but even with a renewed mine - I cannot claim immaculate perception. When we get so focused on removing everyone's blinders, we take the focus off of our own. We run into trouble when we cannot admit we could possibly be wrong. Humility goes a long way - though in politics, there seems to be NO ROOM for it.
