Humility: Day Six

What we think of other people is important. Some of us judge more readily than others, and some people just seem to be easier to like/dislike than others.   Humility is an exercise in thinking rightly of yourself, especially in relationship to others. It is about not thinking too highly...

Humility: Day Five

Self-centeredness is a deadly enemy to humility. Not being able to look beyond your own desires or interests, looking out for number one, being the center of your universe- these things do not exactly breed humility. Our culture is pretty good at driving self-centeredness deep inside of us....

Thank You

Humility: Day Four

Mistakes are never fun. Even when it’s an accident, no one likes to mess up. I have literally, and yes, I mean literally, made someone cry over spilled milk. It was my mom, and I spilled some milk, I was like 17, she cried… long story that you will probably hear in a sermon...

Humility: Day Three

Our culture is not really conducive to positive relationships with others. Our businesses are set up as a competition. Advertisements often focus on bad-mouthing their competitors. Even popular humor centers on cutting others down. I think this is partly a humility issue. Sometimes it is...

Humility: Day Two

We care about what other people think about us. We just do. I am honestly not sure if we can ever totally rid ourselves of this. Furthermore, we do not simply care about what people think about us; we also care if they express good things about us. We care if we are complimented. Compliments...

Bereavement Support

Humility: Day One

Humility is an interesting subject. It’s one of those things that would be hard to teach (e.g. look at me I’m so humble… doesn’t really translate), and especially for me since I know this is not my strongest area. Thankfully, there is a figure from history who can help...
