Week 7: Day 2
The Power of Humility

Scripture to meditate on:
In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:

Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
rather, he made himself nothing
by taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
by becoming obedient to death—
even death on a cross!

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father. – Philippians 2:5-11

NT Wright emphasizes the power of humility as exemplified by Jesus. Today, contemplate the paradox of power found in Christ’s humility.

Questions to ponder:

  • How do you view humility as a form of power in your life?
  • Can you recall a situation where humility led to positive outcomes and relationships?
  • In what ways can you follow Christ’s example of humility in your interactions with others?
