HumilityI’m blogging during this morning’s message. Is that allowed?

Signs of a humble (small-ego) person:

  1. They listen.
  2. They draw attention to others.
  3. They welcome advice.
  4. They are polite and considerate.
  5. They constantly compliment.
  6. They forgive freely.
  7. They can lay their ideas down.
  8. They care about how they make others feel.
  9. They are life-long learners.
  10. They recognize hurt and pain in others.
  11. They don’t care about recognition.
  12. Insignificance means little to them.
  13. They embrace the calling of a servant.

Question: Which of these jump out as weak areas in your own life?

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.

  2. multi-tasking is always a good thing… well, maybe not always but when you come up with positive results it is a good thing. So, what was the morning message about 😉

  3. Hey! Matt gave that sermon last year!

  4. I would like to add one more to the list:
    A humble person exchanges entitlement for gratitude.
