Today’s Quote is About Humility

Posted by:

Handwriting“Probably all you will think about a truly humble man is that he seemed a cheerful, intelligent chap who took a real interest in what you said to him. He will not be thinking about humility: he will not be thinking about himself at all.” — C.S. Lewis

    This quote really pricks me in my heart when I read it and think about how true humility is not thinking about myself at all. I have found myself trying to be more humble by attempting to change my behavior through the flesh and not the Spirit. This results in the inevitable frustration that occurs anytime I try to do anything godly through the flesh and not the Spirit. I pray Lord Jesus help me become more humble each day through the Spirit that I can truly care and take a real interest in what other people are sharing with me about their life instead of being so preoccupied all the time with my own self life and what is always going on with me. This prison house of self is so irritating and it can be so frustrating when you really want to listen and care about what others are saying to you, but all you can hear is your self drowning out what the other person is saying to you. I guess Romans 7:23-25 is true:

    “But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.”
    (Romans 7:23-25)

      It is becoming more and more real to me how much more I need to “see” the Lord. When I see Him everything else seems to get put in it’s rightful place. I pray we all get a greater sight of Jesus, not necessarily a greater sight of us becoming more humble.
