Humility is the opposite of pride, and as Christians, we are called to live humbly. But what does humble living really mean? Is humility thinking poorly about yourself, or is it more of focusing on Jesus and what He’s done for you? Being humble is an attitude, but how can you cultivate that attitude?. Questions to help you to think it through- What are some of the common characteristics of people you know who are humble? What does it mean to give more honour to others than to yourself? How can we live this value in the week ahead?
Love, Louise and Simon
