This week’s study focus in Harnish’s Living With the Mind of Christ is about humility, and … that just hits home with me. Harnish discusses the subject in a number of ways, things that I’m still unpacking at this point and hope to make time to write about later this week. The key thing that he noted, though, is that true humility is neither being a dormat nor a license for an inferiority complex writ large, but rather is a focused attitude that is mindful of the fact that none of us is any better than the rest of us.
I’m sure that the ideal of humility is one to which we can all aspire, but for practical purposes, I think we largely suck at it. Yes, that’s why we have grace, but boy, is this ever something that we should press toward.
More when I’ve unpacked this some more.
