Humble Stumble

The moment I think it’s really there
Like vapor it vanishes into air
It’s when I think I’m humble
Is when I fall and stumble

I mark my meekness not by grace
But by the pious look upon my face
I call all to note every goodly deed
Applause and approval is what I need

I serve and make sure to show
My good so others will quickly know
I am kind and truly good
And have done all the best I think I should

But quiet service is God’s delight
Done without fanfare, yes out of sight
No man knows, no man sees
That is humility and with that He’s pleased

Matthew 6:3-6 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly. And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
