A Kingdom Leader seeks the virtue of humility so they can serve others. You see Cathy in the photo on the left attempting to hold the tail of a lion cub. The cub was not excited about her doing that! Outside of biblical faith, humility is not considered a virtue. Loss of power and prestige is seen as an affliction of weakness and lowliness.
Do you desire to have others acknowledge your ministry titles? Are you accessible and approachable? Are you genuinely interested in hearing about the needs of others? Do you make eye contact with those you pass in the hall? Do you speak to others and call them by name?
Jesus was the ultimate example of humility. Even though he was God he took the role of a servant to care for us! Jesus is our king and savior. But He is mild and gentle like a wild animal that has been tamed.
Matthew 21:5 (NIV84)
“Say to the Daughter of Zion, ‘See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.’ ”a
Check your heart and see if you find His humility in you. Can others see that humility?
