Cultivating humility

“Humility stands alone among the virtues in that as soon as you think you have it, you probably don’t.”  writes John Dixon and he goes on to define it as:

“Humility is the noble choice to forgo your status, deploy your resources or use your influence for the good of others before yourself.”  

I re-listened to Think Hard Stay Humble a sermon preached by Francis Chan.

He does these seven things before he preaches.

And here is a sentence that landed on my heart yet again and humbled me:

'Some of you have been studying Christ for years but does your life look anything like his?'

Now that's a question for me to mull on and pray about.

Humility : true greatness by C.J MaHaney is a challenging read!
