Proverbs 11:2 NIV


“Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less” (C. S. Lewis). Humility can be challenging in a world filled with competitive people. At work, in sports, and in almost every other area of life there is a temptation. It almost feels like a requirement in certain arenas, to self promote to get ahead. I’m am always inspired and at times even awed by those men and women in my story who are incredibly talented and successful who live lives of quiet humility. A lot of them move below the radar while still having amazing impact on the world. The ultimate example of humility was Jesus. Yep, that’s right. The Son of God humbled Himself. The Christmas story is a story of extreme humility. God becomes man, but not just man. He became a helpless infant born in a smelly stable because no one had room for his little family on the night of His less then triumphal entry onto our little planet. The reality of His birth is comparable to a teenage girl giving birth in a broken down car out behind an old gas station in the country. Now that’s a humble start. Today follow the example of our savior, recognize any good in your story is a result of God’s presence in your life, and walk in humility. #BeTheEdge


“And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross!” Philippians 2:8 NIV
