Oh Lord it’s hard to be humble
When you’re perfect in every way.
I can’t wait to look in the mirror.
Cause I get better looking each day.
To know me is to love me.
I must be a hell of a man.
Oh Lord It’s hard to be humble,
But I’m doing the best that I can.

–Mac Davis

 

Happy are people who are humble, because they will inherit the earth.

— Jesus (Matt 5:5, CEB)

Why is humility so difficult? Honestly, it’s like the moment you think you’ve got it, you’ve lost it! Is pride that strong of a force? Can we ever overcome it?

And yet, if we think about the people we admire greatly, most of us would have at least one person on that list that exhibits great humility. What is it about humbleness that’s so attractive, yet so difficult? Could it be that our humility might be the most compelling thing about us and our churches? How might that effect the way we “do church,” not just on Sunday mornings, but every moment of every day?

This Sunday at New Wineskins, we’ll talk about humility, what it looks like, and some of the ways we can start to practice it better. Join us at the Marietta Brewing Company and be part of the conversation!

Happy Half-Hour: 6:30pm

Conversation Begins: 7:00pm
