Then Joshua the son of Nun, the attendant of Moses from his youth, said, “Moses, my lord, restrain them.” But Moses said to him, “Are you jealous for my sake? Would that all the LORD’s people were prophets, that the LORD would put His Spirit upon them!” (Num 11:28-29)
When God allowed men to prophecy other than Moses, Joshua was concerned – but Moses rejoiced that God had elevated others.
Moses was the most humble man of his day (Num 12:3), and one of the purest signs of humility is that other people’s successes bring you joy instead of anxiety. The humble man can “rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep” (Rom 12:15).
Pride prevents us from enjoying the victories of those around us and it prevents us from seeking their success. Humility breeds teamwork, happiness, and brotherly love.
Want to be a humbler person? Make it your goal to help others meet theirs.
