What Is Humility??

by billthemortgageguy

I read this the other day and it really made me think.. 

LUKE 14:11

“For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”

Commentary:

“How can we humble ourselves?  Some people try to give the appearance of humility in order to manipulate others. Others think that humility means putting themselves down. Truly humble people compare themselves only to Christ, realize their sinfulness, and understand their limitations. On the other hand, they also recognize their gifts and strengths and are willing to use them as Christ directs.  Humility is not self-degradation;  it is realistic assessment and commitment to serve.”
