God Treats You With Humility

When Jesus invited people to come to know Him in Matthew 11:29 He said, "I am gentle & humble in heart." What else did Jesus say about the heart? "What you say flows out from your heart" (Luke 6:45). That means Jesus speaks to us with gentleness & humility. What!? God is humble in how He treats us? Yes. God respects you. What!? God respects me? Yes, just as it is loving for you to respect another human being & not treat them harshly or burden them God treats us that way too. Remember God is love.

This was Jesus directly describing His character & communication. If you think God has treated you without gentleness & without humility you've mislabeled something else as God (probably your own shame). Jesus also promised here to give us rest. God does not make you restless or discontent.
