Oh Lord, it’s hard to be humble

Question of the Week

How are you practicing humility?

The Big Idea: Humility is a necessary practice in our walk with Jesus. Humility is also necessary for properly expressing the character of the Kingdom

Take Away: Developing humility, like all the other disciplines we are discussing takes practice. Unlike others, it may feel impossible to know when you have achieved it. Humility is best understood as the consistent correct understanding of our relationship to God, ourselves and others.

 

How does this fit into our culture Belong Become Believe?:

A huge part of humility is being able to receive from others, that includes being welcomed and belonging. Likewise humility makes room for others. Humility also aids in our posture as learners, helping position us for godly formation. Last, humility unpins our confessions that open the door to believing.

Relevant Verses:

Illustration/personal connection:

Winston Churchill was once asked, “Doesn’t it thrill you to know that every time you make a speech, the hall is packed to overflowing?”

 

“It’s quite flattering,” replied Winston, “But whenever I feel that way, I always remember that if instead of making a political speech I was being hanged, the crowd would be twice as big.”  Context
