While pride twists and destroys us, humility preserves and protects us. Every day, every hour, often unconsciously, we choose either to humble ourselves or to be proud. Since pride tends to be our default condition, humility requires deliberate, intentional action.
In this post by my friend Jon Bloom, board chair and co-founder of Desiring God, he shares some helpful reflections on what humility looks like, and explains that we might sometimes be surprised by how it looks.
As a student of theology, writer, and occasional preacher, I loved reading Martin Luther talking about learning theology, and about the “little books” some of us write and the little sermons we preach.
Puritan Theologian John Flavel said, "They that know God will be humble; they that know themselves cannot be proud."
Invest in Eternity
If you’ve been impacted by our resources, we invite you to make a year-end gift before December 31. It’s the generous support of our ministry partners that enables us to continue our eternity-shaping work.
However, we’re here to serve everyone without cost, so please don’t feel obligated to give, but only as the Lord directs. As Jesus said, “Freely you have received, freely give” (Matt. 10:8).
