The Gift of Humility


More than a gift, humility is a reflection. A reflection of Christ. It is the state of not thinking of yourself or that you are better than others. Rather it's a state of selflessness. It's an attitude that does not demand it's own way or cling to it's own rights. Instead, it places others interests before its own. Humility, is the perfect description of Christ. Humility is what we should all desire and posses, especially this time of year.

"Your attitude should be the same that Christ Jesus had. Though he was God, he did not demand and cling to his rights as God. He made himself nothing; he took the humble position of a slave and appeared in human form. And in human form he obediently humbled himself even further by dying a criminal's death on a cross." Philippians 2:5-8
