Humility
20 March 2016

 Humility is our theme this morning, as we meditate on the story of Jesus washing the disciples' feet.  Humility is hard; it means letting go of our pride, admitting we were wrong, asking for forgiveness, making ourselves less important than others, putting their needs before ours.  Yet Christ wants us to live humbly and this is one of the keys to growing closer to him.  The Christian theologian, CS Lewis, writes:

‘If anyone would acquire humility, I can, I think, tell him the first step. The first step is to realise one is proud.  And a biggish step too.  At least nothing whatever can be done before it.’ 

Pride is hard for us to see, and even harder to let go of.  But when we do see it and hold on to it and refusing to be humble we begin to put up a barrier between both ourselves and each other and God.  In the end, our pride only hurts ourselves so let us ask for God’s forgiveness and his help in being a humble people.
