Role models are hard to come by. Sometimes we stumble upon our role models – like the day we realize that a parent, or a grandparent, or a co-worker is far more remarkable than we had previously realized.
And one of the character traits that most often strikes us about that person? It is usually that they approach what we perceive to be their greatness with some astounding level of humility.
And by humility, we mean that they seem to be keenly aware that they didn’t become who they are without failure. They seem to have an awareness they weren’t the only ones responsible for their successes, or they understate their own talents in order to make us more aware of our own. Our heroes are often humble.
Why did the God of the Heavens and the Earth decide it would be best to present Himself to humanity as humble?
Join us this Sunday as we begin our new Advent series, Humble King, and explore the power of God in the humble arrival of his son.
