Thursdays With Oswald—Don’t Try To Be Humble

This is a weekly series with things I’m reading and pondering from Oswald Chambers. You can read the original seed thought here, or type “Thursdays With Oswald” in the search box to read more entries.

Don’t Try To Be Humble

     Whoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven. (Matthew 18:4)

     If humility were put up as an ideal it would serve only to increase pride. Humility is not an ideal, it is the unconscious result of the life being rightly related to God and centered in Him…. 

     If we are born again and obeying the Holy Spirit, we shall unconsciously manifest humility all along the line. We shall easily be the servant of all men, not because it is our ideal, but because we cannot help it. Our eye is not consciously on our service, but on our Savior. 

From Biblical Psychology

Humility is so very fragile. If you look at your humility, you cannot help feeling pride at how humble you are. And, poof!, your humility disappears.

Oswald Chambers in essence says, “Don’t try to be humble. Don’t look at your humility. Just keep your eyes on Jesus, and serve only Him.” By doing so, you cannot help but live humbly.

“If we are born again and obeying the Holy Spirit, we shall unconsciously manifest humility all along the line. We shall easily be the servant of all men, not because it is our ideal, but because we cannot help it.”
