Oh Lord It’s Hard To Be Humble

Humility can be such a pious word. “..Oh Lord it's hard to be humble, when you're perfect in every way..” Zany lyrics from the 1980’s song by Mac Davis caused me to think and wonder - is it possible to overestimate the value of true humility? Confucius once defined humility as “the solid foundation of all virtues”. Maybe humility isn’t about thinking less of yourself, but as C.S. Lewis once put it, “thinking of yourself less.” So is authentic humility even possible? Consider this. "..And what does the Lord require of you...to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God.."  Genuine humility might very well be the willingness to be obedient to the will of the Father, "not My will, but Yours be done", regardless of personal conviction, opinion or cost. Do you do what it takes to fulfill this definition of humility? I like what attorney and author @bobgoff Tweeted: "Humble people dazzle God" It's easier to be humble when our eyes are on the author and finisher of our faith and not on ourselves...PKES
