“Humility is not thinking less of yourself; it’s thinking of yourself less,” C.S. Lewis.
In the Parable of the Prodigal Son, the father’s humility is often overlooked. The father saw his son in the distance, and his heart went out to him. He ran to him, embraced and kissed him. A prideful father would have stood his ground watching each humbling step, forcing his son to feel the weight of his transgressions. Instead, the father threw off his dignity and pride, not mentioning his son’s past misbehavior.
Living Out Humility looks at how we should imitate Christ’s humility by valuing others above ourselves, displaying tenderness, compassion, and forgiveness.
