Humility on Display

“Humility is like underwear—essential, but indecent when it shows”
- Helen Neilson

A man was voted as the most humble person in a village. As a reward for exhibiting this laudable virtue, he was awarded a gold medal. But the next day, the villagers withdrew the gold medal because the man was found wearing it!  
Be careful how you display your humility; the moment you think you have it, you have lost it. Consider another Man. In His life was no trace of extravagance, ease, selfish-gratification, or indulgence. Instead, He consistently displayed self-denial and self-sacrifice—from His humble birth to His humiliating death. “Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, … and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord …” (Philippians 2:5-11).
To know Him is to cultivate His winsome grace of humility. Humility is on display if Christ seen, lived and exemplified in us. Be humble...(adapted from Dr. Samuel Koranteng Pipim)
