If you had perfect humility others could insult you, belittle you, mock you, beat you, and crucify you and it wouldn’t hurt your feelings one bit! That’s what they did to Jesus Christ. Few of us will ever learn perfect humility like Jesus, but it’s a virtue well worth striving for that can make a huge difference in your life.
He told me that through that humbling experience he rediscovered his roots and the dignity of honest hard work. Much of his pride sweated away during that hot Florida summer, and he’d never been happier in his life. It wasn’t long before he was promoted from ditch digger to foreman and from foreman to manager. He'd like to think that God blessed him for embracing the virtue of humility.
