We Are Called to be Humble

We Are Called to be Humble


Always be humble and gentle.
— Ephesians 4:2a

Think it through

  1. Is there ever time to be proud in God’s eyes?
  2. What do you think gentleness looks like?
  3. What is the difference between humility and gentleness?
  4. Consider the life of Jesus; the perfect model of both humility and gentleness.


Father God, I confess the sin of pride. All I need to do is look on your majesty to understand I have nothing in myself to boast about. Instead you would have me use the gifts and talents you put in me in a humble way to bless others. Please help me to be gentle, amiable and kindly, not rough and severe. Help me to be more like you.
