Humility

I just read this article on humility and thought I’d share with y’all.

http://beliefsoftheheart.com/2015/10/27/squeezing-bad-news-from-the-good-news/

Here are a couple of my favorite parts:

  • “Humility is not thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less” (C. S. Lewis). Even attempting humility directs our attention to ourselves.
  • I’m in favor of humility. My family and friends would live more happily if I lived more humbly. But I’ll never be more humble by working on myself, only by looking at Jesus. That’s the secret of the gospel; not personal moral reformation, only the spiritual transformation of seeing Jesus; not looking to the rules but the ruler.

Hope everyone is having a good week. XO – Marci

  1. thanks for sharing! interesting read. a lot to chew on. this part also stood out to me:
    “Moral reformation looks to the rules while spiritual transformation looks to the ruler…I’ll never be more humble by working on myself, only by looking at Jesus. That’s the secret of the gospel; not personal moral reformation, only the spiritual transformation of seeing Jesus; not looking to the rules but the ruler.”

    i also found the first comment on that post interesting, and i want to look into Bernard of Clairvaux’s 12 Steps of Pride now.
