Both Peter and James remind us in their respective epistles that “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.”
This week, as we continue our Kingdom Leadership Series, we will talk about the necessity and the benefits of humility. We’ll also address the pitfalls of pride and false humility.
All great leaders in the Kingdom of God understood that without humility, there is no leadership in the Kingdom of God.
But what is humility? Is humility thinking you are just a little higher than cow dung? Hardly. And yet, many religious people would have you believe this.
The dictionary defines humility as: a modest or low view of one's own importance.
Note how it doesn’t say a low view of one’s own capacity, or ability to contribute.
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines it as: freedom from pride or arrogance
I like that even more.
C.S. Lewis said: “True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less.”
So, this week, we'll teach you how to think of yourself less.
Hey... You're welcome! ;)
