– 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV)

Humility

“True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less.”
– C.S. Lewis

Humility – Point 1
A part of being Humble is to say you are teachable and listen to correction.

Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but whoever hates correction is stupid.
– Proverbs 12:1 (NIV)
20 My son, keep your father’s command
and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.
21 Bind them always on your heart;
fasten them around your neck.
22 When you walk, they will guide you;
when you sleep, they will watch over you;
when you awake, they will speak to you.
23 For this command is a lamp,
this teaching is a light,
and correction and instruction
are the way to life,
– Proverbs 6:20-23 (NIV)
Humility – Point 2
Favoritism is a sin

8 If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing right. 9 But if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers.
– James 2:8-9 (NIV)

We are called to be Humble
