Are You Humble?

If you say yes, you’re probably not. Like the church I heard of that gave a ribbon to the Most Humble Man in the congregation. They ran into a problem when he wore the ribbon back the next Sunday. Humility is something we are all developing. Recently I listened to a sermon by Mark Driscoll on this topic. He gave eight helpful questions for testing our humility. Take the test:

  • Are you teachable?
  • How do you respond to correction and rebuke?
  • Do you repent quickly and thoroughly?
  • How considerate are you of others?
  • Do you give and receive service well?
  • Are you constantly aware of God’s grace?
  • Do you disagree agreeably?
  • How much do you need attention and affirmation?

Get the entire sermon here. Those of you in leadership might want to hear the previous weeks message on Humble Pastors.
