{Philippians 2:3-5; NLT}
Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.
You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.

Men sometimes speak as if humility and meekness would rob us of what is noble and bold and manlike. Oh, that all would believe that this is the nobility of the kingdom of Heaven, that this is the royal spirit that the King of Heaven displayed, that this is Godlike, to humble oneself, to become the servant of all! This is the path to the gladness and the glory of Christ’s presence ever in us, his power ever resting on us.

Andrew Murray, Humility and Absolute Surrender, p. 20

Questions to consider:

  • Why don’t we value humility?
  • What part does looking to the needs of others play in helping us to remain humble?
  • Does knowing Jesus was humble help your desire to be humble?
  • Why would humility be the path to gladness and glory?
