Over the past few weeks, I’ve been preparing to preach on the Christian grace of humility from Philippians chapter 2. To prepare myself for that, I decided that in addition to my normal study materials for Philippians that I would re-read C. J. Mahaney’s excellent little book, Humility: True Greatness. Certainly studying humility is a humbling experience, and for that I praise God. In the course of my study I’ve been freshly confronted with the universal relevance and absolute necessity of the grace of humility. It is a pursuit which never ends in this life—a goal to which we never truly attain, and yet a goal for which never cease striving.
In an effort to share with you the blessing I received while reading, and to aid you in your own pursuit of humility, I thought I’d reproduce some of my favorite quotes from the book. I hope this serves and benefits you all.
