to listen to "Humility and How I Achieved It" (45 min.)
Humility is the hardest chapter in the book
"I might not be beautiful, but I sure know how to accessorize!"
"Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who's the fairest one of all? ...Yeah. So glad we agree."
"I hate looking in mirrors...nobody loves me, everybody hates me, I'm going to eat some worms."
Even our humble-sounding statements are a veiled plea for reassurance - "Won't you tell me I'm okay?"
This useful mirror goes right in the middle of the scale.
On this end of the scale, it's all about constantly checking to see what you think me.
God looks in the mirror of my soul and tells me, "I fashioned you with care."
"Let's explore the Theology of Mirrors, and see what the Bible has to say about agreeing with God about how he sees us."
The Theology of the Unveiled Mirror comes from when Moses hid the fading of God's glory behind a veil.
The veil of pride keeps you from reflecting God's glory.
It's all a matter of where you keep your eyes. "They looked TO HIM and were radiant, and their faces will never be ashamed." Psalm 34:5
Humility is a by-product of increasing how much of your focus God occupies.
Closing by reading one of the humility prayers from the book.
Thanks for listening.
