Choosing Humility

by Carolyn Hope

What is humility? That’s not an easy question to answer. Humility has many sides or faces. It’s like a crystal with several different angles.

There are lots of misconceptions about humility. Humility is not shyness. It’s not the inability to receive a compliment. Neither is humility thinking of yourself as nothing or considering yourself worthless. Humility is not weak or insecure. Sometimes, we tie humility to a specific personality or certain acts that seem spiritual; but that’s not the case.

The truth is that humility is a choice, and it’s one that anyone can make. With that said, there are many facets to this principle. This week, I’d like to highlight a few of those: honesty, vulnerability, clarity, and others. It’s my hope that as you read these descriptions of humility, you’ll be encouraged to become more like Jesus in this way. Regardless of who you are or where you come from, you can follow in the footsteps of those in the Bible who chose humility.
