“…There are times that I get pretty ‘full of myself’… thinking…I’m pretty great. It’s that ‘stinkin-thinkin’…”

Image result for caricature of humilityHUMILITY: A word for EVERYONE in the Corporate World …at all employment levels. If a leader makes an error…be humble and admit it. We all love it… when the big guy admits an error.

Humility is a “seldom-used” in our day-to-day events…much less in Corporate America. This is TRUE all the way to the house with 8 Columns….Where deny, blame, and lie…are the norm. Admitting a MISTAKE; taking the blame for your own mistakes; or the hardest…. “I’m SORRY…I screwed up.” The popular form is …”I miss-spoke.” Never would you hear… “I lied….and I’m SORRY.”

The greatest are the most humble because they are more likely to learn, to serve, and to not think too highly of themselves.   God cannot fill a person with “grace,” when they are already full of themselves…there is no room. I KNOW…I’m as guilty as the next guy. There are times that I get pretty “full of myself,” thinking…I’m pretty great.  It’s that “stinkin-thinkin.”

Philippians 2:3-4 makes it very clear…“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.”

It all goes back to Matthew 7:12 – In everything, then, do to others as you would have them do to you. For this is the essence of the Law and the prophets.

Don’t overlook the “power of HUMILITY.”
