Humility

Humility is the mark of a true Christian. Jesus humbled himself when he became a man. Humility is stepping down so someone else can step up. It can be exhibited in small ways such as allowing someone else to go before you in the check out line. Or larger ways such as donating a kidney so your brother can live. We are not trained in humility. By nature we are looking out for #1. Humility comes from the realization that “it is more blessed to give than to receive.” The scriptures say that God “resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” Humility is one of the traits of love. When love becomes a way of life, humility will flow naturally.
