 Humility
This past weekend, we saw that humility blesses others, adorns Christ, and achieves results. This week’s email devotionals will take a closer look at each of these, day-by-day.
 
“So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Philippians 2:1–11 (ESV)

 
Baker’s Evangelical Dictionary of Biblical Theology says this about humility:
 
“Biblical humility is grounded in the character of God:
The Father stoops down to help the poor and needy,
(Ps. 113:4-9; cf. 138:6-7)
The incarnate Son exhibits humility from the manger to the cross,
(Matt. 11:29Acts 8:32-33Phil. 2:5-8)
The dual usage of “meek” (Gk. praus) and “humble (tapeinos [or] “low”) in heart” in Matthew 11:29 emphasizes Christ’s humility before humankind, whom He came to serve; as well as His submission before God,
(Matt. 20:28Mark 10:45Luke 22:27)
Humility and meekness are often inseparable,
(2 Cor. 10:1Eph. 4:2Col. 3:12).”
