Humility – Is There an Easy Way to Learn It?

January 30, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Phil 2:3 in my NIV says, “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.”

No doubt humility is an important Christian virtue and it would appear that my good friend and able chess warrior, “Dr. J”, believes I need just a teeny weeny bit more humility in my life. Honestly, how is one to know? I tip my hat to “King James” for providing yet another opportunity to learn about humility. Just when I think the game is in hand, I manage to snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory. Oops, that doesn’t sound too humble, does it? Well Jay, set ’em up as I’m ready for another lesson. If only you weren’t such a good teacher, though. Oops, that doesn’t sound too humble either. Well, looks like we might have to play a whole bunch of games before I get this conceit – oops – I mean concept down.

    Humility and Bob? That’s a new concept!

      Naw – the concept has been around for a long time. It’s just that I struggle to achieve it!

    Thank you, very much, for crediting me with teaching you humility.

    First of all, I’m not sure that’s possible.

    Secondly, I feel that your ego is just about the right size.

    You are a “good humor man,” who likes to puff himself up with his own special brand of bravado.

    It is, however, all in jest.

    To the extent that losing to Team Mandeville helps you become more humble, I’m willing to assist.

    “Humble” Jay

      “King James” – In the spirit of deference and submission, I’m not aware of a plate big enough to hold the size piece of humble pie I look forward to serving you!
