Humility

This outfit is what I wore to church yesterday. Still on the hunt for a church home but I truly enjoyed yesterdays message on Humility so much that I purchased it to watch again later. In many ways I was looking at the meaning of humility all wrong. Although I am very confident and fairly successful in my own rite, I never forget where it all comes from and that is thru the Glory and Grace of He up above! Just a quick takeaway from yesterdays message I feel is summed up perfectly HERE.

You can defuse arguments when you are humble.

A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger (Proverbs 15:1).
You do not need to stand up for yourself in an angry manner. And you do not have to win every argument.

You can handle unfair treatment peacefully when you are humble.

You can respond to unfair treatment without being overcome by bitterness. Godly humility means you do not feel a need for vengeance or revenge.
Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you (Ephesians 4:31-32).

You do not have to put on a "false front" when you are humble.

When you understand God and humility, you don't need to act like a big shot. The better you know God, the less you have to prove.

You can eat "humble pie" without being crushed when you are humble.

When you are humble, you can respond to and learn from criticism without defensiveness—whether it is deserved or not deserved. Likewise, you can be aware of your failures without being emotionally devastated.

You can ask forgiveness when you are humble.

Even if you think you are only one percent wrong, you can easily apologize for what you did wrong.
Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift (Matthew 5:23-24).

You can talk with the right attitude when you are humble.

You can talk courteously and lovingly, regardless of the situation—even if you need to be firm or take strong actions.
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen (Ephesians 4:29).
