It is in our relationships to one another, in our treatment of one another, that the true lowliness of mind and the humility of heart are to be seen. Andrew Murray
I am reading about a topic that is not a very popular theme. I am not even sure it is ever really considered beyond a glimpse into Christ washing His disciple’s feet and possibly a brief look at relevant biblical passages. At least it is not a usual dinner table topic. Do we even want to ponder the subject? in this day and age of self-esteem, where “I” and “my rights” are so entrenched in this society?
As I am considering the subject of humility, I am also pondering whether humility is something we choose or is a real humility a heart issue, a transformation given only by God as we seek Him? Maybe the choice here is the choice to seek Him, maybe this is true humility; the choice to willingly surrender our wills…He does the rest. Best not think more than that…I might start thinking I have made it, that I understand humility….wrong!!! I’ve just demonstrated the opposite. What a proud assumption.
