What is it to experience genuine humility and why is it so important in faith?
What I learned from this article is:
1) Humility is a major theme played out in every major world religion. In most every religion humility is linked with being close to God
2) Humility is not self-deprecating
3) Truth without Humility is Doomed
Here also is one of the major sections the bible points to on Humility in Philipians 2:
My recent personal definition of Humility
Humility- to admit what has control over you and recognize how it limits you
I think knowing true humility for me often requires an experience of being humiliated. Being humiliated is that gut realization of “shoot, I do not have it all figured out” and then being embarrassed for it. I think sometimes it takes full blown humiliation sometimes for my pride to be truly shaken.
I am still exploring this concept and hope to write again on it in a couple of weeks. For now, I would love individuals who are inspiring to share- what does humility mean to you? How does it tie to faith? Genuity? Truth? Humiliation?
