He Emptied Himself

Jesus left the glory of Heaven to come down and take upon Himself a nature like my own, because He loves me so much.

I wonder if I understand how much of a humiliation it was for Jesus to become human. If being with the Father is something beyond our wildest dreams, just imagine what being equal to God must be like! How could He leave such a position for me?

I am ungrateful most of the time and prefer myself, people and things to Him almost constantly. I do not have much to leave and yet I cling to the little I have as if I were never going to lose it.
