I finished reading a good article this morning in the latest issue of Discipleship Journal. The article is entitled “Downward Mobility” by Gary Thomas. Gary is one of my favorite authors. I always find his thoughts challenging and wise. A lot of his writings are influenced by the Christian classics.
In the article, Gary mentioned that humility is not such much something that we become as it is something we practice. His gives several practical ways that we can practice humility in our own lives. I always appreciate the stories he shares from his own life that help illustrate his points. I was challenged as I read this article and used it to launch into a time of prayer asking for God’s help to produce the fruit of humility in my life and relationships.
