In Our Humble Opinion
« on: June 19, 2007, 09:52:58 AM »
The thing is, most of us approach humility in one of two ways:


· The first approach is consciously acting as if we are humble. We create a false humility by trying to imitate what we think humility looks like.


· The second approach is to assume we’re not worthy, that we’re second class and permanently assigned to the back of the bus.


Neither of these approaches reflect authentic, biblical humility. The biblical approach to humility means you understand exactly who you are – but more importantly – you understand exactly whose you are, and that God has placed you where he wants you, for such a time as this. In this way, your humility is not attached to your self-esteem.


In other words, you don’t have to think less of yourself. Rather, you begin to think more of God, and you begin to agree that you are totally dependent upon God, and from this emerges a Christ-like humility. You’re no longer burdened by having to know all the answers or to be in control of everything.


It is God’s job to solve the problems of the world. Your job is to walk in humble obedience to what God tells you to do.
