Humility

 

  • Not easy to apply while competing in a fast-paced, profit-driven business environment:
  • If implemented, can easily be interpreted by competitors as a sign of weakness: A surefire formula for disaster!

EXCEPT FOR THE FACT THAT GOD’S WORD CALLS US TO A LIFE OF HUMILITY:

 

Clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, for God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” (1 Peter 5:5)

 

How do I know if my life is laced with PRIDE or graced with HUMILITY:

 

THOSE DRIVEN BY PRIDE ARE :

  • Dogmatic.
  • Egotistical (masking a sense of insecurity).
  • Unable to respond graciously to criticism.

THOSE GRACED WITH HUMILITY:

  • Are so sure of themselves that they feel no need to draw attention to themselves or their status.
  • Revel in the accomplishments and potential of others.
  • Have a capacity for self-criticism.
  • Allow, enable, and empower others to shine.

Moses, considered by many to be the greatest leader of all time:

 

“… was very humble, more than any man who was on the face of the earth.” (Numbers 12:3)

 

As Christ’s followers we choose to embrace Moses’ example rather than emulate prevailing market-driven values. Right?
