Heading Towards Humility

I should really explain myself.

I’m an almost 42 year old man who has been called to run a Christian media ministry. I’m a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a leader, a boss, a friend. I’m passionate… I’m relentless… I’m emotional, but not always sensitive… I’m generous, but not always kind.

The truth is that I’m many things – good AND bad.

One thing I’m NOT… is humble!

I look at it this way.

One definition for humility, as far as I’m concerned, is “knowing what I’m good at, and knowing what I’m NOT good at, and being comfortable with both”.

The problem is that I’ve always been far too comfortable with what I’m NOT good at (after all, I get reminded of my failings all the time), and not always comfortable with what I AM good at.

So, I’m a head case more than humble.

But… something has begun to change.

I’ve been reminded, lately, that I am made in the image of God. Which means that I am, by nature, compassionate and extravagant and flamboyant and brilliant…

… and I’m beginning to be okay with that.

I am also utterly flawed. I have scars. I walk with a limp…

… and I’m okay with that as well.

All of which means that I may not be a humble man, yet…

… but, I am on my way!
