I will never forget spending an afternoon in September 2001 with Walter Jespersen, at the home of Doug and Margaret Nichols. Walter, Margaret’s father, was perhaps 85 then, and now is 100 years old.
Romans 12:3 says, “Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment.” This is what humility is—it’s recognizing who we really are.
Puritan Theologian John Flavel said,
"They that know God will be humble; they that know themselves cannot be proud."
As Christians, we are chosen by God, and also targeted by Satan.
