Hey new world, your man Handy is back in full affect. Like me and my ace boon coon would say, I’m back like I never left baaabbaaayyy!!!!! I’m speaking for both of us when I say we will make a more concerted effort to bang out these blogs more often. How we have been doing lately this year has been unacceptable!! I take full responsibility for that and promise that I will do better!! Now that the pleasantries are out the way, lets get to the meat of the blog.

Dream Big and Stay Humble!!! Now when you see this, most people will say that this is obvious, but I mean something deeper than what you may think.

In the bible it states, “When he noticed how the guests picked the places of honor at the table, he told them this parable: “When someone invites you to a wedding feast, do not take the place of honor, for a person more distinguished than you may have been invited. If so, the host who invited both of you will come and say to you, ‘Give this person your seat.’ Then, humiliated, you will have to take the least important place. But when you are invited, take the lowest place, so that when your host comes, he will say to you, ‘Friend, move up to a better place.’ Then you will be honored in the presence of all the other guests. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” (Luke 14:7-11 NIV)

I found this interesting when I heard it at Fall Convocation in church. Not only does the message says to be humble in your actions, but consider yourself the least important person in a room. It is always better to be called up than to be called down. In anything if you really think about it, when has it EVER been better to be called down than up? With that said, if you start from the bottom you can only go to the top, if you start from the top you may stay at the top but you can definitely go to the bottom.

Also the preacher brought up the point of how the host will tell a person less honorable to simply give up their seat. There was no asking, there was no pleading, just simply MOVE. That struck a chord in me. It’s almost as if the host looked at the person less honorable with a hint of disgust. Like “how dare you sit in THAT seat??!!” As people we must understand that we are never as important as we may think and the minute we start to think of ourselves as high, is already when we begin to fall.

Dream Big and Stay Humble!! Without dreams, nothing great in this world can never be accomplished. So in that facet, you must believe or look at yourself in a higher place than currently in. But stay humble in your thoughts and your travels throughout life. Whether rich or poor, famous or unknown, you can’t let yourself ever become bigger than your task. The second you put yourself on a pedastool, getting knocked off is only a matter of time. Always assume the role of the lowest and when your name is called to be upfront in the crowd, the masses will look up to you as you go.

Like I said before its a tad bit deeper than just the words. When you look in the mirror what do you see? A person with nothing but flaws or a person with no flaws at all? Stop going through life thinking you know it all or you can learn all on your own? I’m tired of hearing people say, “I can do it on my own…” You can’t!!! You need help!!! A humble person understands that and embraces it. Even when you are at the top, you still need help to stay there!!! There isn’t a person in this world that did not make it without the help of someone else. Being humble is one of the hardest things to do, but it’s past possible. Meaning its more of a possibility to accomplish humility than to not achieve it. So just remember, don’t be upset at your seat at the feast, just be grateful that received the invitation to be there. Everyone was not invited to the dinner, so take condolence in that. Dream big and stay humble. Until next time, be safe, be positive and always be real, I’m out…
