Ann Woskamp who blogs at A Holy Experience shared about how it takes humility to drink the cup given to us. The walk to the cross was one of humility…“he humbled himself and became obedient to death – even death on a cross” (Phil. 2:8). So it is when we serve others and live with what we’ve been given. Many people I know have been given cups that have been hard to bear…a child with special needs, infertility, moving, unfaithful spouses, death of a loved one. Jesus didn’t bear the cup without tears and I suspect the tears are what help us die to our desires and come out on the other side saying ‘Not my will…’
